Short Summary of situation and history:
The background of your relationship, parenting arrangements, support arrangements, etc. Where the parties (and children if any) lived. What was each parties’ role in the relationship and with parenting?
What are the current arrangements (parentins, support, living etc.)? What is working and what is not?
What orders do you want and why? For example, what parenting time schedule do you think would be best for the children and why? What child/spousal support order is appropriate ( be sure to know how much you earn and how much you think the other party earns)? Talk to duty counsel or a private lawyer if you can about what orders you want and whether they are reasonable.
