Pre-Divorce Planning

Thinking About Divorce?

Divorce does not necessarily begin with the filing of papers. Getting started early with pre-divorce planning can help you set the stage for an efficient divorce with a satisfactory outcome. At The Law Office of Zoe Meigs, P.C., I can provide guidance in planning for divorce. As your Fort Worth divorce attorney, I will let you know what can be done ahead of time. Together, we can create a divorce strategy designed to achieve your goals.

For more than 15 years, I have been helping people in Fort Worth and the surrounding parts of Texas with all aspects of divorce from the planning stage forward. I will help you address division of property, child custody, child support and more.

What Is Pre-Divorce Planning?

There is much that can be done ahead of time to get everything lined up for the divorce process. One of the most important things is to really take the time to outline your goals. What do you want your life to look like after the divorce? In these emotional situations, it can be easy to focus simply on ending your marriage. Yes, you want to get through this, but you want more than that. You do not just want to bring your marriage to a close. You want to build a future that you can be happy with. Let us talk about what that future looks like. Then let us talk about how you can get there.

Another key component of pre-divorce planning is getting a complete picture of assets, income and finances. This is a good time to start gathering documentation to prove separate property and protect it. It is an opportunity to gather account statements and do some investigation to make certain you have a full understanding of your spouse’s financial picture. Many people are surprised at what they find out.

You Do Not Have To Commit To A Divorce Yet

At this early stage, you may have a lot of questions. Getting answers to those questions is a part of pre-divorce planning too. I am happy to provide answers. Keep in mind that simply talking to a lawyer about the legalities of divorce does not mean you have to commit to divorce. I am happy to talk to you about what the process might look like and what the outcomes might be. Call 817-336-2325 or contact me online to find out more.
