If you are getting divorced, one of the first things that your family law lawyer will do is to interview you and your spouse to determine the details of the case including child custody and visitation rights. He will also interview witnesses and other people who can help your case like other former spouses. Your lawyer will try to get as much evidence on the opposing party as possible, he may even seek information from the jail where your spouse is serving his time.

When divorces are finalized in the family law courts, there is a final decree which is referred to as an “Agency Agreement”. This decree spells out the terms under which the parties would be cohabitating or living together as a married couple. It will also describe what is to be expected from each spouse, and the amount of alimony and other payments to be paid. This agreement may be used as a guideline for future negotiations during divorce proceedings or at any point if the divorce proceedings have not come to an end. The divorce lawyer is the person who will advise you on all aspects of your divorce case from the start to the end.
