Information Needed for a Consultation if You Are Considering Divorce

I encourage people to treat a consultation as an opportunity for you to gather as much information as possible. You should be prepared, though, to discuss the reasons why you came to see an attorney, particularly the circumstances behind seeking a divorce. You'd also be prepared to discuss your personal background information; some basic information relative to your children; information regarding your financial circumstances, such as your income, your assets, educational background. Those are things that are of importance to an attorney because they're going to be able to ascertain what issues need to be dealt with in terms of the divorce action. Please keep in mind that a consultation is confidential, so it's important to be candid.

Just as no two marriages, and no two families, are the same, every divorce is different. At Jean M. Mahserjian, Esq., P.C., our clients come to us with a variety of questions and concerns, reflecting their unique circumstances. Though these concerns can be broadly categorized, we know that the solutions are found in the particulars. That’s why we work closely and collaboratively with you to identify and prioritize your goals ― and formulate a strategy for achieving them.
