Try for a settlement outside court
It is better to resolve the matter outside as proceedings in the court can be expensive and would hit both the parties involved. You can reach a conclusion by negotiating so that there is no need to take the case to a divorce court. Hiring respective attorneys and preparing for the case can turn out to be very expensive.
Hire an attorney for your case
If the matter is not solved by negotiation, court is obviously the last option. For that you will have to hire a divorce lawyer who could represent you as the case proceeds. Do your research by consulting people who have been through the same phase or by consulting legal organizations before you make a decision.
List the property and belongings you share
Make sure you list all the properties and belongings you share with your wife in order to prepare for the case. The list should include real estate, bank accounts, cars or any other financial investments. This will make it easier for the attorney to prepare for your case.
List all household and medical expenses
The next thing would be to prepare a list of all the expenses. This includes the entire household and the medical expenses you shared. List the monthly bills, maintenance costs, taxes paid, clothing, health insurance costs and any medication expenses.
Provide the attorney with all the information
Provide all these documents to your attorney so that he can thoroughly prepare for your case. You should make copies for all the paperwork you have submitted for review afterwards. Try to examine all the documents and make sure there is not anything that can go against you during the proceedings of the case.
