Jay A. Frank, a Senior Matrimonial Attorney at Aronberg Goldgehn, answers:
How should someone prepare for the financial aspects of the divorce process?
In order to start the process with some degree of knowledge regarding the assets of the marriage, I would recommend that you attempt to gather as much paperwork as you can beforehand. Get copies of tax returns, bank statements, and anything else you can lay your hands on. When you visit the lawyer for the first time and give them these papers, they’ll have an idea of what to look for and where to go.
