What NOT to bring to the Attorney’s Office…

The initial appointment with the lawyer is always nerve-wracking.

You should be prepared and be on time. Bring financial records, receipts, tax returns, screen shots of texts, phone records, and recordings.  Bring yourself, perhaps a trusted friend or family member, a form of payment and even an internet-provided checklist of what to ask the attorney.

However, unless requested otherwise, do not bring….

  • Do not bring your Child. It’s not appropriate.
  • Do not bring your Spouse.
  • Do not bring 5 banker’s boxes of information. It’s too much.

Matthew Thompson is a Family Law Attorney in Mississippi and recommends you not bring these things to you first appointment.
