My clients often report that they feel one hundred per cent better after their first consult. The road to an appointment with a divorce lawyer spans many miles. During that first visit, we discuss exactly what to expect during a divorce. That starts with a general overview of the process, the filing of the petition, service of process, the required financial disclosure, the mediation process, and the components of a good marital settlement agreement. We identify which issues, if any, should be heard by a judge.
