How to prepare for a consultation in a high asset divorce

Finding the right legal counsel is critical when ending a marriage. For this reason, many British Columbia individuals going through a high asset divorce will have consultations with multiple different potential lawyers in order to find the right fit. In order to do this effectively, it is a good idea for people to come prepared and ask the right questions in order to really understand how the lawyer might be able to help them.

Getting documents in order and bringing them to a consultation is ideal to get the most value out of the initial meeting. For example, if there is a restraining order or a divorce filing, these documents should be provided upfront for the lawyer to peruse. Additionally, a bird's eye view of the finances involved in the separation will help to clarify the main assets that will be involved in the breakup.

People should also have a clear understanding of their goals for the divorce settlement when meeting with a lawyer for the first time. Are they primarily concerned about child custody? Is there a business or particular asset they want to protect? Knowing this upfront will help a lawyer properly understand the situation at hand.

Like any initial meeting, coming armed with poignant questions will help make sure no topic is missed. This can include questions about the lawyer's experience, fees, availability and approach. It is critical for those going through a high asset divorce to find a trusted British Columbia lawyer to advise them and work on their behalves when dealing with the many legal issues that come with a marriage ending.
