A divorce is the one of the most stressful events that can occur in a person’s life. Two spouses once in love are now duking it out in the courtroom. When your spouse is not playing fair, you need an aggressive divorce attorney to get what you are entitled to. Here are a few tips to find the perfect divorce attorney for you.
Referrals from friends or family can be a good place to start when looking for a divorce attorney. Divorces are unfortunately common. It is likely a friend has used, or knows someone who has used, a divorce attorney. Then you can ask questions to determine whether they are a good fit for you.
There are many different resources online that have reviews of attorneys. Use them as a tool, but make sure to diversify your search. It is more likely that people will write a bad review than a positive one. Checking resources online will give you lots of attorneys to choose from, and you will be able to find one who will be a good advocate for your case.
Schedule a Consultation
When you find two to three divorce attorneys who you think would be good fit for your case, call them and schedule a consultation. Most attorneys provide a free consultation. This would give you the opportunity to interview them, ask them questions, and get a sense of their personality. Most consultations can last from half an hour to an hour. Make sure you bring all documents that would apply to your divorce. It is also helpful to bring copies of financial documents such as paycheck stubs, tax returns, and a monthly budget. A good attorney will listen to your needs and come up with a game plan on how to approach your divorce.
