What papers or documents do I need to bring to our first meeting about my divorce?

Divorce covers a number of marital arrangements, including financial and custodial. You should bring any documents related to both marital (shared by you and your spouse) and individual (owned solely by you) assets (your marital home(s), investments, valuables), debts, and expenses. In addition to paperwork, expect to provide personal information such as your address, employer, and contact information during your first meeting with an attorney. Don’t worry if you forget to bring something to your initial meeting with an attorney; he or she will let you know what’s needed and you can always send it along later.
