Should I Tell My Divorce Lawyer Everything?

Should I Tell My Divorce Lawyer Everything

Oftentimes, divorce clients are concerned about what they should and should not tell their attorney. It can be difficult to open up to a stranger and discuss the intimate details of your marriage and family life. In some cases the circumstances surrounding your divorce may be embarrassing, leading you to feel as if your privacy is being invaded. The good news is, whatever you discuss with your attorney is private and confidential. Your attorney will not share any details or information you share with them unless you grant them permission to do so. While not every small aspect of your life needs to be discussed, when it comes to issues directly relating back to your divorce, transparency will get you the furthest. This is because your attorney needs to know about anything your spouse may try to use against you in the divorce. You may be tempted to gloss over any infidelities or physical acts of violence, but in the end if the dirty laundry will be aired, it’s best to give your attorney the opportunity to prepare.


Come Clean About All Relevant Information

If there are facts in your case that directly relate to the type of spouse or parent you are, share them with your attorney. Whether it be coming clean about working long hours, cheating on your spouse, or spanking your child, sharing this information with your attorney is vital. It can be difficult to share these parts of yourself but it is not the job of your attorney to judge you. Your attorney will work to help you find the best solutions for your situation and to prepare for anything that may get brought up against you. Contact Renken Law Firm today to get started on filing for divorce.


Nothing is worse than paying for an attorney, failing to share information with them, and then watching them be blindsided by what your spouse’s attorney brings up in court. Even if you do not believe your spouse has all of the information pertaining to wrongdoings you have committed, they may hire a private investigator to drag up details that can help build a case against you. Contact Renken Law Firm today to learn more about how we can help you file for divorce from your spouse.
