What’s the First Thing to do when getting a Divorce?
If you or your spouse are contemplating divorce, or you have been served with divorce papers, consult with a Springfield divorce attorney as soon as possible. Do not rely on the advice of friends who have gone through a divorce or trust your spouse if he/she says you do not need counsel. The facts and circumstances of your case are unique to you and your divorce should be tailored to your interests. Effective counsel will take the strategic steps needed to protect your interests while ensuring court rules and deadlines are followed. Your attorney may recommend that you establish a separate residence or remain in the marital home, open new bank accounts or use the joint account, or create a shared visitation schedule or keep the children from an abusive spouse. Each situation is different and without legal counsel, you will not know what is best for you.
