PRE-DIVORCE PLANNING

If you are thinking about filing for divorce, there are things you can do prior to beginning the legal proceedings. At Patterson Law Firm, we help clients of all incomes organize their finances before divorce.

Divorce requires documentation of financial information, estate planning documents and more. Your pre-divorce planning may include:

  • Organizing assets and debts
  • Budgeting
  • Gathering financial documents
  • Solidifying separate property and community property

Effective pre-divorce planning will help you arrange for rent, food and other necessities. Questions such as “Where am I going to live?” or “What car am I going to use?” can be problematic. Our attorneys will help you take on the tough practical questions about your life after separation and divorce.
