You should bring all of your court paperwork, including pleadings or court orders. You should also bring any paperwork which you think is important to your case.

Will my spouse know I have met with an attorney?

Will you be able to tell me how long my case will last or what will happen?

Even after we meet with you, there is no way to predict the length of the case. The length of the case depends on a variety of factors: your ability to communicate and settle with your opposing party, the availability of the judge assigned to your case, and the complexity of your case. You can read more in depth about this issue on our blog at: https://greensinklaw.wordpress.com/2013/03/20/how-long-does-a-divorce-take/.  

Will my case go to trial?

What if my spouse and I have reached an agreement but neither of us has an attorney?

You can retain us to review the terms of your settlement and we will let you know if there are more effective ways to accomplish some of your and your spouse’s goals. You can also retain us to put your agreement into writing, and you can then take the written agreement to your spouse for further review.

If we have an agreement, will my spouse need to hire a separate attorney?

While it is not necessary, it is often a good idea for your spouse to have the agreement reviewed by a separate attorney.

Will we have to go to Court if we have an agreement?

Can I get alimony/maintenance? Can I avoid paying alimony/maintenance?

You are under no obligation after your initial consultation, nor is Greenberg & Sinkovits, LLC, under any obligation to you. (We will not, however, meet with or talk to your opposing party.)
