Choosing a Lawyer

One of the most important decisions to be made when going through a divorce is the choice of a lawyer. The other important decision is the process.

When you are choosing a lawyer, there are some important things to consider.

  • Are you comfortable with your lawyer?
  • Does he or she listen to you and understand you?
  • Has your lawyer explained the various divorce processes available such as:
  • The Kitchen Table divorce between you and your spouse
  • Mediation
  • Collaborative practice
  • Litigation or negotiations between lawyers that may include going to court if the lawyer negotiations do not resolve the issues
  • Have the potential costs of each of these options been explained to you?
  • Have the basic principles of family law been explained as they relate to the particular facts of your situation?
  • Has the lawyer asked about your goals and what is most important to you in this matter?
