After you have received the names of some divorce lawyers that you have learned from asking others, go online and start investigating those lawyers and others. Several divorce lawyers have blogs, write posts, and advertise on websites for divorce portals. By reading their website, you will get quite a bit of details on how an attorney handles cases and treats customers. Create a list of at least two and as many as five divorce attorneys that you think you would be comfortable talking to after you have checked the divorce attorney websites. Call those divorce lawyers’ offices and arrange appointments. Some of those lawyers will charge you for a consultation; the more experience the lawyer has, the more likely you’re going to have to pay for that attorney for time.Be prepared when you attend an appointment with a divorce attorney. Make an overview of your marital past and the issues you are having now. If any documents have been brought by you or your partner in court, make sure to bring them with you. Bring tax returns for one or two years or a recent financial statement so that the divorce lawyer can review some of the financial records before raising questions about “results”. Learn more on child custody.
Make sure you ask questions from each divorce attorney about how the office of that attorney functions in response to customer phone calls, emails, or other inquiries or needs. If you are dealing with a divorce lawyer who does not have another lawyer in their office, be prepared to wait in line when you need an answer. The lawyer would have other customers who have needs as relevant as yours, and only one customer at a time can be receptive to an attorney. There might be a divorce attorney, even with the limitation, who you know is just right for you, who is also a solo practitioner. That is a trade off in which you can need to get comfortable.
