The benefit of being the first to file for divorce is that it means you are ahead of the game in having prepared your case. Integral to every divorce case are the economic issues. Of course if the parties have children, custody and child support issues are also integral. With regard to the economic issues, it's beneficial to have organized your financial statements and documents, including copies of mortgage statements, deeds, bank statements, credit card statements, tax returns and the supporting tax documents, documents which would demonstrate whether assets and liabilities were acquired prior to the marriage or during the marriage. Gathering these documents and reviewing them with your attorney helps you set your strategy and negotiating points. This can also result in more readily settling your divorce matter.
