What Is a Pre-Divorce Planning Session and How Are They Helpful?
A lot of people like to plan things. In fact, there’s no end to the different things in life you can plan. Just about everyone plans their wedding, as well as their family. So what about divorce? Should you pre-plan for your divorce? That might sound kind of strange. However that doesn’t mean when you get married that you already have a plan in the back of your mind as to how your divorce will go. No one plans on getting divorce when they first get married.
However, taking the time to plan ahead after you have decided to end your marriage is a very good idea, which can prove to have a lot of benefits throughout the divorce process. Even if you are just considering divorce and still haven’t made up your mind, going through a pre-divorce planning session can help you to make that determination effectively. There are many things to consider in divorce so planning ahead just makes sense. So what exactly is a pre-divorce planning session and how do they work?
A pre-divorce planning session
is a unique and confidential service we offer at the Women’s Divorce & Family Group. This gives you the opportunity to sit down and speak with one of our attorneys and explain to him or her what you are going through. A pre-divorce planning session is not like a run-of-the-mill initial consultation. This session is not only designed to help you specifically discuss your case, but also to allow one of our attorneys to advise you and consult with you. That means before we start one of these sessions you would need to sign a retainer, which would officially establish an attorney/client relationship.
The purpose of a pre-divorce planning session is to help you look at your situation from many different angles and help you see where you are and where you want to end up down the road. That means we can explain all the different possible outcomes of your divorce and help you come up with a plan to be in the best position to achieve your goals. Importantly, we also provide strategies for achieving the goals we set forth in the pre-divorce planning session. The more planning and preparation you do before divorce, means the divorce is more likely to go how you want, and the more likely you will end up where you want to be.
When you sit down with us for a pre-divorce planning session together we can help you map out a plan for many different issues, including, but not limited to:
- Child Custody
- Child Support
- Parenting Time
- Property division
There are many factors to consider when contemplating divorce, and a pre-divorce planning session can help you begin to plan for a divorce. Please contact the professionals at the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group by calling (312) 585-6604 or clicking here to schedule a consultation.
