There Is Some Information About My Marriage That I Think My Attorney Needs, But I’m Too Embarrassed To Discuss It. Must I Tell The Attorney?
If you fail to disclose information to your attorney, he or she will be unable to adequately advise you or prepare your case. Although it is deeply personal to you, it is unlikely that anything you tell your lawyer will be a shock. Attorneys who practice divorce law are accustomed to hearing a lot of intimate information about families. It may feel uncomfortable, but it is important that your attorney have complete information so that your interests can be fully protected. If speaking directly about these facts still seems too hard, consider putting them in a letter.
