Meeting with a divorce attorney does not mean you are getting divorced, it means you are getting advice. Just as you would not show up on the day of surgery without meeting with your doctor ahead of time, you will not get divorced simply by having a meeting with an attorney.
Divorces may involve several issues including physical custody (where the children will live), legal custody (how to make decisions for the children), child support and payment of expenses for the children, division of property, and maintenance (or spousal support). Understanding what a court will consider with regard to each of these issues and how that may apply to your family, can provide answers to questions that may have your head spinning. Knowing possible outcomes in a divorce, and determining when and if it’s the right time for you to get divorced through a discussion with an attorney, can replace anxiety with answers.
