I learn a lot from my clients who’ve reviewed their spouse’s financial records. You know a lot about what your spouse does, even if you are not familiar with the specific bank accounts. Your knowledge, transmitted to your attorney, can save you money since it directs your lawyer in the right direction.
Going through a family law case will be taxing, emotionally and financially. But you can control how financially taxing it will be on you. Pick the right attorney. One that you respect, one you can work with, and one that will call you back! Be organized and timely. Work together with your attorney and your case will run more smoothly, which results in a lot less cost to you. Good luck!
