When going through to complicated process of divorce, it is important to have someone in your corner who is going to help get you the results you need. Finding the right family lawyer may seem like an impossible task, however, if you know what to look for it can be a relatively smooth process.
First, look at the experience of the firm or the lawyer you are looking to hire. The more cases they have worked with, the better understanding they will have of the process.
It is also important to note their strategy. Are they being brought in to help fight for your kids, or are they going to fight to ensure you are financially covered? Understanding the approach they hope to make with the case can show you what they believe you value most.
Be sure you are aware of the fees. Ask about upfront pricing. This may not be available at every firm, so it may be best to try to get a sense of the amount they will want so you can plan accordingly.
Trust is a very important factor in the entire process. Is this family lawyer going after what is best for you, or best for their firm?
