What Does The Attorney Do?

An attorney guides you through the process and represents your interests in court by doing the following:

  1. Meeting with you to gather information about the case and advise you on options.
  2. Notifying your spouse about the pending divorce if you are the plaintiff, or answering the complaint if you are the defendant.
  3. Contacting your spouses´ lawyer and setting up necessary meetings, including negotiations, depositions and mediation.
  4. Filing motions for you in court and appearing on your behalf in front of the judge who is hearing your case.
