Handling Divorce Cases for Paralegals

Learn the important roles of gathering information and maintaining organization through the entire process of divorce cases.

Handling divorce cases and dealing with divorce clients can be challenging. Clients can be more emotional and anxious in a divorce than perhaps any other type of case. And it seems every year that the law and procedures become more complex. You have to be ahead of all of this. There can be a lot of moving parts to deal with. Before a case is filed with the court there are extensive and detailed facts and information that have to be collected and organized in a way that is useful for your law firm to effectively represent the client. That necessarily includes comprehending what the facts and issues are, and what documents and information are relevant to each fact and each issue. Some clients may have little or no knowledge of family assets, investments, business interests and finances. But all of that information is essential. The client has to be instructed about what information is required. If the client cannot access it, it must be secured from other sources: the other spouse; accountants; financial advisors; banks; the internet. Then a determination has to be made about what information is missing, and that has to be secured. All of the information and documents are a means to an end: the case must be settled, perhaps through mediation, or tried in a court of law. The preparation for either is huge, and it all has to be done consistent with the rules and procedures of the law.
