Choosing the Right Divorce Attorney

Even with an amicable divorce, you need the right divorce attorney. Finding the right one takes a little research and, in most cases, an interview with the person who will have a great deal of insight to your personal life. So, how do people find the right attorney for their divorce? We have a few suggestions.

Ask People You Know Who Have Already Divorced

They can tell you about their experience with their attorney and perhaps provide insight into their former spouse’s attorney. Some of the questions you should ask include:

  • Did you communicate through email, text or phone calls most often?
  • How responsive were they to your questions?
  • Was the attorney involved in your case or did you mostly deal with a paralegal or other assistant?
  • When you received the invoices, were they what you expected?

Whether they had a good experience or bad, it will help you narrow down your options.

Talk to the Divorce Attorney You Are Considering

Ask the divorce attorney you are considering for an initial consultation. Sit down with them, tell them the type of divorce you are planning (mediation, collaboration, simplified, or court settled) and ask about their experience. If communication is important to you, ask how they communicate and how often you can expect updates. Find out their fee structure and how their billing works. Know what is important to you and find out how they operate.
