Four Things To Do Before You File For Divorce In Atlanta
Taking careful steps now can protect your children, your assets and your reputation once your divorce is final. For example, we recommend:
- Gather all your financial documents, including statements from your bank and retirement accounts, and make copies
- Do not move out of the family home just yet, unless remaining in the home puts you or your children in danger of abuse
- Avoid making threats, such as declaring your spouse will never see the kids again or that you will get all the marital property
- Discuss your options with a qualified family law attorney
We will help you understand exactly what you are entitled to and what your responsibilities are. You will be ready to file for divorce with a clear idea of what the future will most likely hold. Instead of being angry and afraid, you will be calm and prepared. Ms. Sturges will then work to negotiate a reasonable settlement or take your case to court, if necessary, to ensure a fair result.
