When is the best time to consult a lawyer about my divorce case?
As the old saw goes, there is no time like the present! If you are considering divorce, or are on the receiving end of a suit for divorce, your first instinct should be to reach for the phone and call Hirsch Legal, LLC.
Time is not your friend when it comes to divorce law. Waiting for your problems to disappear rarely works. What does work is careful planning and efficient time management. Even though it often seems as if the divorce process is interminable, most of the stages come with strict time limits or other conditions set by Connecticut law and local courts. Letting a deadline slip or failing to answer a filing or request in a timely fashion may result in an adverse ruling that could have negative consequences for your financial or custody prospects.
There are many advantages to getting the ball rolling as soon as possible. Your lawyer can help you plan an optimal legal strategy from the early stages that will help get you in the right frame of mind for the legal battle aheadand provide important advice about how to manage the all-important discovery and negotiation process.
The divorce process can exhaust your last ounce of patience long before the settlement is finalized, but there will also be moments when you feel like time is bearing down on you like a Category 5 hurricane.
You will have to work closely with your legal advisor to gather and prepare evidence, testimony,take witness/expert depositions, as well gather any documentation concerning financial and/or parenting issues that may need detailed examination.
