Find An Attorney: How To Select A Divorce
Finding and selecting a divorce attorney is a critical decision making process. The person
who you hire will be responsible for obtaining or maintaining your custody rights to your children, your property
interests, and depending upon the side you are one, either minimizing or maximizing your support rights. Selecting
the attorney who would be the right one for your case can be a bit difficult to determine.
Here are 7 Tips to help you choose
and find an attorney for your divorce
1. Check whether the attorney specializes in handling divorce cases. If
the attorney takes up other cases, determine the percentage of practice that is devoted towards solving divorce
2. Ask the attorney about the number of divorce cases that he or she has
successfully handled the outcome of the case and for how long.
3. After consulting with an attorney about your case, ask the
attorney what to expect from your case and other possible outcome.
4. Check the number of years that the attorney has been actively
practicing in the area of Family Law.
5. Check out the attorney’s reputation and see how the reviews of the
past clients have been. Asking your friend about their divorce and how their attorney handled their case
can be good to get ideas. But, your friend’s results may be very different from yours.
6. Ask the attorney how often they are in court. Many attorneys
can't stomach this approach and do mediation only.
7. Before hiring the attorney ask for his/her fees schedule. Check how
much the attorney charge and other related costs incur during and when filing for divorce. This will avoid any
unexpected or hidden costs if any, during your divorce process.
When you opt to hire an attorney for your divorce case it is important that you check the
compatibility and the comfort you feel that you share with the attorney. There is no point in taking the help of an
attorney if you cannot open up to him or her.
