For every situation it is definitely different, but during my initial counsel, I not only try to discern what the potential grounds for divorce might be but I also try to get an idea of what the finances are in the relationship. How many children? Where is child support coming? Is this an alimony case? We’ve kind of hit that buzzword “finance,” so key document(s) to bring might be last year’s tax returns and just something that would give you an idea of the income between the parties and how I’m going to take care of my client as the litigation moves forward.
