When you schedule an appointment with an attorney for a divorce consultation, you might wonder what you should bring. Watch this video by Buffalo Divorce Lawyer Donna L. Haslinger for advice. If you are considering divorce, please contact us to schedule a divorce consultation with our experienced Buffalo attorneys. 

  • When you first meet with your divorce attorney, bring a list of questions. When they come for an initial meeting, many people are often nervous and, although they have a lot of questions, once they arrive, those thoughts may evaporate.
  • If you have access to the prior year’s tax return, bring it with you, along with a recent pay stub if you have one.
  • That first meeting will primarily include a review of your specific situation and any questions you want to ask.
  • You may leave with a list of information to gather, but this initial meeting is essentially an information gathering session that will enable us to set a course for your divorce.
