When To Start Thinking About Speaking with a Divorce Attorney

On Behalf of | Dec 24, 2019 | Divorce

You’ve been concerned for quite some time now, and it seems things are heading in the wrong direction. When should you start thinking about speaking with a divorce attorney at Burke & Domercq?

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 one of our Certified Family Law Specialists. Sitting down to talk to one of our experienced Carlsbad 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 (as well as the behavior of your spouse) can have a substantial impact on everything from child custody and parenting time to the division of community property and spousal support.  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 start thinking about speaking 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 whether to move out, and if you do where to go. If you want to share joint custody it may not be in your best interests to move out.

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.

Learn the truth about an efficient and cost-effective divorce in Carlsbad and North County.  Having a discussion may not mean the end of your marriage.  Our title’s include “Attorney and Counselor at Law,” and there have been many clients over our decades of service to Carlsbad who have chosen to stay together and work things through.
