Are you thinking about hiring an attorney for your family law needs? If so, this blog post will help you make that decision as you take your next steps.
The biggest items to consider when seeking an experienced family law attorney are:
Cost can be a big concern when hiring an attorney. Make sure that you are aware of all legal fees and establish a financial plan around them. Something to consider is to work with the other party on attorney’s fees. We can guide you with these financial decisions.
Are there are any unusual or special aspects of your situation? For example, if your divorce involves dual business ownership, or perhaps you own several properties together. Maybe you have children from a different relationship who are a part of the situation. An attorney who has experience with cases involving these issues is important to seek out.
It is so important that you feel comfortable with your attorney. Your attorney’s job is to advise you and to represent your best interests. If you are not comfortable with your attorney, working together will be very difficult for your attorney to do their job well. Ideally, you’ll both be in agreement regarding how your case is pursued, and what the outcome will be. Your attorney’s experience level may contribute to how comfortable you are. If they practice in your county and know the court system well there, you will probably be more at ease.
