Getting a divorce? Build a team and prepare

| Apr 2, 2020 | Divorce

You’re starting to prepare for a divorce, but you know that you’re not familiar with the process or what you need to do to get started. For that reason, you, and many others, may want to turn to an attorney.

When you work with an attorney, they will help you start filing for divorce. On top of that, they’ll give you more information on the documents you need, the timeline you can expect and other information that you may want.

Divorces are physically, emotionally and potentially financially draining. For that reason, one smart idea is to see a counselor and to speak with other professionals, such as accountants or forensic accountants, as you move through the process of your divorce. These individuals can help you understand the implications of your actions throughout the process of divorce, while your attorney will be there to help guide you through the legal steps you need to take to move forward.

Should you consider mediation?

If you are going through a dissolution case, you will be required to go through mediation in Snohomish County. Otherwise, it’s up to you if you want to try to work out your divorce disputes with your spouse in a mediation setting. It can be helpful, but only in cases where both of you can agree to work together to come up with an agreement you’re both happy with.
