You could serve certain discovery requests on your wife requiring her to provide an accounting of assets so that the parties actually know what is being divided or should be divided in the divorce.  If you don't gather some proof of assets and the divorce is finalized, then you may loose your main opportunity to see a balanced division of the community estate.

Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved.
