What should I expect at my first consultation and what information will I need to bring with me?

Your first consultation with Karen L Haga & Associates is very important. At the meeting we will discuss your personal situation in detail to better understand how we can help you moving forward. It is at this meeting that we decide which approach to take (i.e negotiating directly with your ex-partner or spouse, collaborative law or court-based divorce proceedings) and how things should proceed.

It would be beneficial for you to bring along any relevant correspondence you have had with your ex-partner, details regarding your financial situation including assets and liabilities, and details of your relationship such as when you were married or started living together, the birth dates of any children, and when you separated.

It often helps to prepare a list of any questions you may have so that you don’t forget them on the day.
