What will happen during your first divorce consultation?

Kentucky has a relatively high divorce rate compared to other states. Lawrenceburg, Kentucky has the highest divorce rate out of any other city in the state, and 22.2 percent of the population of this city have gone through divorce. 

Every divorce needs to begin somewhere, and you will absolutely need to hire a divorce attorney to assist you during this time. Before hiring anyone, you will want to schedule an initial consultation to review your case. You will naturally go through a lot of emotions during this time, and you may wonder what this meeting will entail. Here is what you need to go into your divorce consultation expecting. 

Write out questions beforehand

This is your opportunity to ask as much as you need to in order to feel more comfortable with the entire process. Write out all questions you have so that you do not forget anything. In addition to asking questions related to divorce, you should also ask about the lawyer's fees and experience. 

Bring essential documents

You can give the attorney a better idea of how to proceed by bringing documentation to this first consultation. You will need to bring pay stubs, prenups, birth certificates for any children you share and tax returns. Since Kentucky is a no-fault divorce state, there is no reason to bring evidence of adultery because it will not impact the outcome. 

Expect support

It is important to realize an attorney is not a therapist, and if you have trouble sorting through your emotions during this time, then you may need to make other arrangements for your emotional well-being. However, the attorney should understand how divorce affects a person and should demonstrate compassion. You will work with this lawyer for many months to come, so you should work with someone who makes you feel comfortable. Pay attention to the lawyer's attitude and body language during this first meeting.
