Planning is important after a divorce proceeding has been filed, especially if little or no planning was done prior to starting the legal process.
The two most important activities in litigation planning are:
1. Defining one’s interests. Clearly defined interests serve as a foundation upon which to base decisions and actions.
2. Gathering accurate and complete information.
With clearly defined interests, information in a user friendly format, and effective legal counsel, a person is empowered to develop a strategy for achieving an outcome that maximizes their interests.
