A Positive Approach to Legal Matters

At Richard T. Bell & Associates, in Sugar Land, Texas, we provide dedicated and compassionate representation to every client. Based on our experience, we have found that it is often beneficial to speak with a family law attorney before taking any action toward divorce. Consulting a lawyer does not necessarily mean that you are going to end your marriage. It simply makes you aware of your options in the event you decide to move forward.

Many contentious issues can arise during a divorce, including property division, child custody and child support, among others. By putting a plan in place before filing for a divorce, you can determine your stance on these issues during a less emotionally stressful time.

Gathering Documentation

If you are considering divorce, it is often a good idea to gather certain documents to bring with to your initial consultation. Documentation of your financial standing, educational background and assets can provide your Sugar Land divorce planning attorney with the information necessary to assist you in developing a plan for your future.

The following records are often valuable in divorce planning:

  • The last three years of tax returns
  • Information about your income and your spouse's income
  • Bank account information
  • Pension and investment information
  • A list of substantial assets, including real estate holdings, jewelry, and art collections
