Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need when I see the attorney? What should I bring?

When going to see your attorney for the first time you'll want to bring certain documents and records with you. Have the following items with you:
  • A copy of your marriage license
  • A copy of your most recent paystub
  • Federal and State tax returns for the last five years
  • Business records and financial statements
  • Loan applications
  • Documents describing any other income and assets
  • Bank records for the last year
  • Any additional documents you feel are relevant to your current situation
Your attorney may not need all of these, or he/she may require additional documents, but the papers on this list will be a good start.
