How do I Prepare for a Divorce in Saskatchewan?
One of the best ways is to get all the paperwork describing your assets together so that you can bring them to your lawyer at your very first meeting. Get them all organized and in one place. That’s everything: debts, bank statements, real property, insurance policies, retirement accounts, cars, boats, and anything else you can think of that you own.
You should also bring your child’s medical and school records. All of this can be vital evidence if custody becomes an issue.
