It is common to wait until after the holiday season to file for divorce. There are both financial and emotional reasons for this decision, and many people simply do not want to “ruin” the holidays for their children or families. Just because you are waiting to file, however, does not mean that you should wait to begin preparing for your divorce case.
There are things you can do in the meantime to be ready for your divorce filing once the New Year passes. Divorce can take preparation, and you can take steps to get ready, so everything is in order when it comes time to file.
Consulting with a Greensboro Divorce Attorney
The first thing you can do is set up a consultation with a divorce lawyer. Choosing a lawyer can take time, and meeting with one does not at all mean that you must file for divorce. In your consultation, you can:
- Learn about your options and requirements for the divorce process
- Discover what information and documents you should start to gather
- Start to set objectives and goals for your divorce outcome
Your spouse does not need to know that you are seeking legal advice if you are keeping the divorce under wraps for the holidays. However, you can begin collecting the information you need to best protect your rights.
By choosing your lawyer now, you will be in the best possible position going into the divorce process. We can begin sorting out your property and assets, possible custody arrangements, and even start drafting the paperwork so you are ready to start your case once 2022 arrives.
