I’m going through a divorce, and I just feel so anxious. I don’t understand what to expect, and my attorney isn’t telling me anything. How often should I talk to my attorney? What can I expect to happen in the first few weeks of my divorce?
The divorce process can certainly be anxiety-provoking. You are in unfamiliar territory and there are a lot of emotions that accompany the process. How often you speak with your attorney should be up to you. Some of our clients speak with us weekly, some email us every few days, and some others only want us to reach out when we have a new update. However, your attorney should have a conversation with you about your preferred method of contact and there should be a dialogue between both of you as to when, and how, you would like to be updated about your case. During the beginning stages of a divorce, there is often a lag while you are working on your financial affidavit and while the court is scheduling your first court date (usually a Resolution Plan Date, also known as an RPD). However, after that, there will probably be more movement with some negotiations and working through financial production.
