divorce, divorce planning, Illinois divorce attorneyDivorce lawyers are often asked by potential clients what they, the client, should do when planning or preparing for a divorce. This is not a situation where they are trying to hide assets or income. On the contrary, this question is usually posed to protect the person that is contemplating divorce because their husband or wife may begin to hide assets, income or other information in the event of a divorce.

While this list is not all inclusive, consider the following if a divorce seems imminent. First, gather important documents, such as:

  • Birth certificates;
  • Social Security Cards;
  • Prior years’ tax returns;
  • Wills;
  • Trusts;
  • Premarital Agreements;
  • Bank statements;
  • Credit card statements;
  • Medical records; and
  • Any other document that is hard to duplicate

Papers sometimes have a way of disappearing when the petition for dissolution of marriage is served on the other party.
