When Should You Begin a Conversation with a Divorce Attorney

When Should You Begin a Conversation with a Divorce Attorney Louisville

You’ve been concerned for quite some time now, and it seems things are heading in the wrong direction. When should you begin a conversation with a divorce attorney at Dodd & Dodd Attorneys, PLLC?

The key in any potential divorce is information and preparation.  If you wait until you are served with divorce papers by your partner you may already be at a disadvantage.

If you are concerned enough about your relationship that the concept of a divorce has seriously entered your mind it is not to soon to speak with Dodd & Dodd. Sitting down to talk to one of our experienced Louisville divorce and family law attorneys is not “conceding to a divorce.” It is simply prudent to be prepared and to know what to do to protect yourself and the things which matter most to you.

How you handle yourself prior to the filing of a divorce can have a substantial impact on everything from child custody and visitation or parenting time to the division of marital property such as retirement accounts as well as maintenance.  Learn about every aspect of planning your divorce from financial arrangements to how to handle public communications such as texting, emails and social media.  You should begin a conversation with a divorce attorney weeks or months before you intend to file for divorce or believe your spouse might.

If there are children it will be important to discuss issues such as custody and visitation and whether or not it is in your best interests to move out.  If you want to share joint custody it may not be in your best interests to move prior to the commencement of divorce proceedings and extensive conversations with your lawyer.

The worst source of information before and during a divorce is your spouse.  There are many myths and flat out untruths which can be used to threaten your peace of mind and your ability to make sound decisions.  You should never take legal advice from your spouse, especially when there are deep divisions within your marriage.

Learn the truth about an efficient successful divorce in Louisville.  The decision to begin a conversation with a divorce attorney and having a discussion about protecting your best interests may not mean the end of your marriage.  There have been many clients over our decades of service here in Louisville who have chosen to stay together and work things through.

It is important for you to be well equipped to make sound decisions and to gain perspective and peace of mind. We invite you to review the strong recommendations of our former clients and contact us or call 502-584-1108 to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced divorce and family law attorneys.  If you are giving serious consideration to a divorce you should consider speaking with a divorce attorney.
