What Should I Bring to My Consultation?

This depends on what type of legal matter you want to discuss.

~If you want to discuss child support or spousal maintenance, try to bring your last three paycheck stubs, your tax returns or Forms W-2 for the last three years, as well as the same information for your spouse or opposing party.

~If you want to discuss getting divorced, try to bring a list of all credit card debts in your name, your spouse’s name or both of your names, a list of mortgage or rent payments owed, and a list of the make, model and year of all vehicles owned by you, your spouse or both of you, together with documents showing the monthly payments owed for each vehicle. Also bring along the documents about child support or spousal maintenance.

~If you want to discuss where your child lives or how much time the other parent spends with the child, bring a list of concerns you have about the other parent’s parenting skills, or if you have concerns about the other parent’s behavior due to substance abuse or some type of inappropriate behavior, make a list of those concerns with specific examples you can recall.

~For all consultations, know the dates of birth for your spouse, former spouse, opposing parties and child/children, and the exact date you married and/or divorced if applicable. The consultation is designed for you to learn some basic information about the legal issues involved in your case, and for you and Janet to decide if you wish to work together. During an initial consultation, there is insufficient time to discuss every issue in your case, but having the above information readily available allows time to discuss other things of interest.
