Frequently Asked Questions
At Ewing Anderson, P.S., we believe the divorce client is an integral part of our team. To help our family law clients and potential clients understand the process of their case, we are providing some answers to frequently asked questions:
1. How should I prepare for my first meeting with my divorce attorney?
The ability of your divorce attorney to evaluate your family law case is determined by the quality and accuracy of the information that you provide to your attorney. If you are considering divorce start gathering the following documents. Please keep in mind that very few clients are able to gather all of this information prior to the first meeting.
- Current paycheck stubs for both spouses.
- Last year’s state (if applicable) and federal income tax returns.
- Copies of titles to vehicles or vehicle registrations (including automobiles, boats, trailers, motorcycles, etc.).
- Any descriptions of job benefits provided by employers, for both spouses.
- Pension, profit sharing, and retirement information, including yearly statements showing value of interest in the plan and a copy of the plan summary.
- Life, disability, and health insurance policies.
- Statements from checking and savings accounts, stock certificates, bonds, and savings certificates.
- A list of current debts (mortgages, charge accounts, dental, hospital or doctor bills, furniture payments, car payments, etc.) Include a copy of the last statement and the date of the last payment.
- If you own your own business, a copy of the business income and B&O tax records.
- Any written community property agreement you have with your spouse.
- A list of your questions so that the attorney has an opportunity to address all of your concerns.
2. What can I expect from an initial consultation with my divorce lawyer?
Your initial consultation is an opportunity for you and the family law attorney to meet and discuss your case. During this discussion you can decide whether or not you are comfortable with the attorney and our firm.
This is your chance to ask questions and see how the divorce lawyer evaluates your case. The more information you provide at the consultation, the better the lawyer can educate you about your case. You can expect the divorce attorney to discuss the application of family law to your situation, the strengths and weaknesses of your divorce case, timelines for your case, provide an estimate of the cost involved, and explain the billing process and office procedures.
Because we provide a high degree of attention to each family law client, we are not able to accept all of the divorce cases brought to us. If we decide that we cannot provide you with the best representation, we will gladly provide the names of several attorneys that may be better suited for your case.
3. Why is my case (property settlement, monthly maintenance, parenting plan, divorce, child custody,child support,family law order) different than that of my neighbor, relative, business associate or friend?
We are professionals in our field. We find that the advice clients receive from non-attorneys often establishes unrealistic expectations or fears in our client since this kind of advice is often inaccurate or subject to misinterpretation. Our approach to your family law case is tailored to the unique facts of your case. If you are getting divorce law advice from others, please let your attorney know. As your case proceeds, the attorney will be happy to explain the reasons for the procedures that we follow and the decisions that we make.
