Divorce is not a process that anyone wishes to go through and it certainly is not one that you want to be lengthier than need be. However, when looking for the best divorce lawyer, it is so important not to rush the process and end up making the wrong choice. This isn’t to say you should takes months to decide, but make sure you have done your research before committing.

 

This article will address the following questions:

 

I’M GETTING DIVORCED, DO I NEED A DIVORCE LAWYER?

This depends on how complicated or “messy” you think your divorce could get. If you and your partner have had discussions and are both on the same page, then there is not necessarily any need to get a divorce lawyer. Instead, you can have a mediator who will help you and your spouse agree on the terms of the divorce. If for example you and your partner have children and are not looking for the same outcome, it is usually recommended to get a lawyer to help to negotiate.

 

HOW CAN I CHOSE THE RIGHT DIVORCE LAWYER? 

Although it is a good idea to look up divorce lawyers online, you should start off by asking around. Perhaps you have friends who are lawyers and might know someone suitable or you might know someone who has been through divorce and can recommend someone. Make sure to make a name list and see if any of the lists cross over. The more a name pops up, the more likely you are to feel in safe hands. Once you have a few names from trusted sources, look them up online and write down any information you can find out about the divorce lawyers that might shape your decision. Always check online reviews to see what past customers have said.

 

Before committing to a divorce attorney, set up a meeting with them first to ensure that you are choosing the right person. It is also key to make sure you have established your expectations before meeting up with potential divorce lawyers and write down any questions you want to ask them. Although it is not uncommon to switch to another lawyer if it does not work out, it saves money and stress by picking the right one in the first place!

 

WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A DIVORCE LAWYER? 

Aside from the financial aspect, which we will get onto later, there are other factors that you need to take into consideration. You don’t necessarily need to spend an absolute fortune on your divorce lawyer and not every lawyer is right for everyone.

 

These are the key aspects to think about when considering a divorce lawyer:

 

  1. Trust

It is extremely important to feel comfortable around your divorce lawyer and most importantly, feel as though you can trust them entirely with any information. Bear in mind that your divorce lawyer is not your counselor, although you want to feel as though you can trust them, remember that time is money – the more time you spend discussing feelings, the more it is going to cost you!

 

If there are any signs that perhaps the lawyer has disclosed any information about prior clients or that their behavior seems unprofessional in any way, move on.

  1. Affordability

This by no means suggests that you should go as cheap as possible, but at the same time you do not want to end up paying fees that you cannot afford. Research how much divorce lawyers usually cost in your area and decide on a price range that you can comfortably commit to. Be sure to be realistic.

 

  1. Reputation

Make sure to properly research a divorce lawyer before going with them. You probably look up movie reviews before paying to see a movie, the same goes for divorce lawyers (even more so!). If prior clients have had a negative experience with them, you will want to know about it. However, do not take one bad review at face value, make sure to weigh it up against any other positive reviews and make your own mind up. What one person will look for in a divorce lawyer will not be the same for the next person.

 

HOW MUCH DOES A DIVORCE LAWYER COST?

There is no standard price for a divorce lawyer as it can range from a few hundred dollars to hundreds of thousands. It depends on your location, whether you live in a rural location or a large city. It also depends on how straightforward the divorce process is predicted to be. The only way to work out an average of what you should be paying is by researching how much other clients have paid in your area. Divorce statistics can offer further information on divorce prices and what the price factors are.

 

HOW CAN I AFFORD A DIVORCE LAWYER? 

Divorces can be costly and so it is vital to financially prepare for it. Our article on how to survive financially after divorce will help you prepare to deal with the financial impact of divorce.
