When you are navigating a family law dispute, certain elements of the process can prove to be overwhelming. Even with an experienced family law attorney navigating much of the process on your behalf, you likely must keep track of a mountain of paperwork, dates related to your legal proceedings and other dispute-related tasks. As if divorce, child custody disputes, domestic violence cases, adoptions and other family legal issues are not taxing enough already, most of these processes require you to stay highly organized.
In addition, the need to remain organized will not likely cease once your dispute has been largely resolved. If you are domestic violence victim, you will need to carefully file away all related paperwork and come up with a plan of action if your abuser violates his or her order of protection. If you have recently divorced, you will need to track all financial information affected by the divorce for as long as your divorce settlement directly affects your finances.
