How Do I Choose a Divorce Attorney?

Why the Right Attorney Matters

There are so many different aspects to a divorce. From children and your home to joint accounts and other property, it can look like you have a mess in front of you when it comes time for a divorce. While the bad news is that going through a divorce can be emotionally draining and stressful, the good news is that having an experienced lawyer in your corner to sort through the red tape on your behalf can make the process go a lot smoother. Here are some things to consider.

Prepare For Your Meeting

Before heading into your meeting, communication will be vital in helping you make a decision. Take the time to write down everything you want to discuss when preparing to interview a potential divorce attorney. While you may have a specific list of questions related to your situation, read on to learn the most critical questions you’ll need to ask.

Essential Questions to Ask

The only way to know if you’ve found the right lawyer is to ask questions, and you probably have many of them. However, the following are some critical questions to ask before making a final decision:

  • How long have you been practicing divorce law?
  • Will anyone else in your office be working on my case? If so, what experience do they have?
  • How will I be charged for your services?
  • How can I keep the cost of my divorce at a minimum?
  • What other costs or charges should I anticipate?
  • How can I reach you in an emergency?
  • What do you need from me?
  • What are the next steps if I decide to retain you as my lawyer?

Getting the answers to the above questions can help you get a better understanding of what to expect from your lawyer and the divorce process.
