3 Questions to Ask Your Divorce Attorney


We know how stressful divorce can be and that it can only be made more stressful when you do not hire the right lawyer, so we would like to share 5 important screening questions to ask prospective divorce attorneys to make sure you get the right one for you.

Do You Have Experience with Situations Like Mine?

Every situation is different and it is going to be important to work with a lawyer who has worked with special situations that are similar to yours. Whether you have children, a high net worth, significant assets or liabilities to go through, you want to make sure you work with a lawyer who has represented clients in similar situations.

Do I Have Options Other Than Divorce?

There may be other options such as mediation or arbitration that can save you some money and hassle in your divorce. Some lawyers are going to encourage you to explore other options while others will not. Make sure you know what all of your options are before you file.

What Is Your Legal Network Like?

Make sure that you work with a lawyer who has an extensive legal network. If you work with a brand-new attorney who doesn’t have any experience working with the judge on your case or your ex-spouse’s lawyer, you might end up paying for their lack of experience.
