Picking the Right Divorce Lawyer: Here’s What You Should Know…
Tip 1 – Research any referrals you get from family and friends.
As you start the process of picking the right divorce lawyer to oversee your case, it’s natural to turn to family and friends and ask them for referrals. If you do end up getting the names, numbers or cards for any divorce attorneys, make sure to look them up online before calling and potentially wasting your time meeting with someone.
If you don’t end up receiving any viable referrals, search online for family law attorneys in your area, and narrow down your choices to less than 10 or so options. Starting with a list of potential options can greatly facilitate the rest of the process for picking the right divorce lawyer for you.
Tip 2 – Make sure a lawyer has experience handling divorce cases like yours.
Every divorce case is unique, and the issues that may be disputed or the focus of one divorce can be very different from those that may be central to another case. For example, while child custody and visitation may be issues in one divorce, another may be focused on the division of assets or even potentially allegations of domestic violence.
For this reason, it’s critical that, when picking the right divorce lawyer for you, you check out an attorney’s specific experience to make sure that (s)he has:
- A history of overseeing divorce cases like yours.
- A track record of success when it comes to resolving these cases.
It’s usually going to be in your best interests to steer clear of any lawyers who have little or no experience resolving divorces similar to yours.
