Preparing for Our First Meeting: A Checklist

Our lawyers have prepared a checklist for you to bring to our first meeting. It should give you some guidance as to what information we will be looking for, as well as some of the questions we may ask.

  • Name, age and birth date
  • Social security number
  • Address and length of residence
  • Bank account balances - checking and savings
  • Stocks, bonds, etc.
  • Gross pay last year
  • Year to date income (all sources)
  • Retirement plans
  • Health insurance carriers
  • Life insurance
  • Doctor's name
  • Date of marriage
  • Children's names, birth dates and social security numbers
  • Information about your home and mortgage
  • Cars driven by husband
  • Cars driven by wife
  • Other vehicles, such as motorcycles or boats
  • Debts, including creditor's name and how much owed
  • Inventory of personal property and furniture

This list may look overwhelming. But coming up with a plan and agreement that becomes legal is our goal. Every family member will know what to expect and the plan can even be upheld through the enforcement of the court if needed.
