Yes, you should talk to your attorney before divorcing

Divorces are all different, which is why it's important to speak to your attorney long before you ever consider talking to your spouse about separating. Your attorney has important information about the things you need to do before you divorce so that the divorce can go as smoothly as possible.

For example, did you know that it's better to collect supporting documents, proof of your assets and financial printouts before you talk about divorce? It's easier to collect these important documents before you go through divorce since your spouse will be more willing to help you find paperwork you're looking for or since the passwords and access to certain documents won't be restricted.

Another reason to have a discussion with your attorney ahead of time is to make sure divorce is the right choice. There are times when people start the divorce process and find that they can make their marriage work. There are also times when they find that the divorce is too expensive or that it would leave them in a negative financial position. You want to talk through these possibilities before you decide if a divorce is right for you.
