Your initial consultation is designed to fully explore your legal concerns and to provide you with good advice. Our family law attorneys will address your concerns, answer your questions, and design a strategy that works best for your unique case. Please be advised that to fully assess your case and determine your needs, our attorneys require a full and thorough interview with you. In order to better assess your case, it is recommended that you bring the following items for attorney review:

• All deeds of all properties owned
• Tax assessments on each property
• IF you own a house, then the latest monthly statement of payment, principal, and interest
• IF not already divided, an itemization of all household furniture and furnishings worth more than $200.00, list room by room and note those items that were yours prior to marriage or that were inherited during marriage
• List any special “collectibles” i.e. dolls, coins, gold, stamps, guns, sporting cards, and other collections worth more than $500.00
• Tax returns for the past 3-5 years
• Copy of each monthly debt including credit cards, car payments, auto/health-medical/life insurance premium payments, and all utility bills
• Copies of all bank account statements for past three months (if date of separation is not current date), then three months before and after that date
• Any apartment rental agreement
• All life insurance policies
• Last three paychecks or last paycheck evidencing year to date income
• License numbers, pink slips on all vehicles, i.e. cars, boats, motorcycles, jet skis, etc.
• IF you have pensions, stock plans, or 401K’s, bring copies of your last statement
• Any legal documents or agreements pertaining to your current legal proceedings

If you do not have access to these documents, do not worry. Bring what you can. We also recommend that you bring a list of your questions, concerns, and priorities so that you can make the most of your appointment. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us toll free at (888) 852-9961.

We strive to provide our clients with the highest level of professional service. If we do not live up to these standards, please let us know immediately.

Thank you for allowing us to be of service.
