When you are beginning the divorce process, one of the first things that you should most likely do is to hire a divorce attorney. This process can often involve meeting with several different attorneys until you find one that you feel comfortable with, and whom you believe can best represent your unique needs and concerns in the key divorce areas of child custody, child support, alimony, and marital asset division.
However, rather than simply meeting with a prospective divorce attorney and seeing what happens, it is often much better if you can be prepared with several questions to ask your potential divorce attorney, questions which will give you insights into the type of divorce attorney you are hiring, how they plan to handle your divorce, and what kind of payment structure will be put into place.
“What Experience Do You Have Handling Similar Situations and Divorce Matters?”

First and foremost, the experience that your Spring Lake divorce attorney has does matter, and can go a long way towards successfully and effectively resolving your divorce.
Although every family’s situation and needs are different, if your divorce attorney has experience handling divorces with similar concerns or situations, in the areas most important to you, this experience can go a long way towards informing you more accurately of your options, and resolving your divorce in ways which most accurately reflect your unique needs, concerns, and goals.
So, when you meet with your divorce attorney, be sure to ask them what kind of experience they have handling cases and situations similar to your own.
“What Will Be Your Approach to Resolving My Divorce and Its Related Issues?”

Each lawyer and law firm will have their own way of approaching and resolving the cases they handle. When it comes to family law and divorce, much of the way in which your attorney will approach your case depends on the specifics of your situation.
For example, how willing are you to compromise on certain matters? How willing is your current spouse? If your attorney doesn’t ask you these questions in response to your own, chances are they will not provide you with the attentive and effective service that you deserve.
“How Much Will My Divorce Cost?”

Finally of course, if you are interested in retaining the services of the attorney you are speaking with, you will want to ask them about the cost of their sercvices, and the projeted cost of your divorce.
In our article from several weeks ago, we discussed this particular aspect of hiring a divorce attorney in great depth. Part of what we discussed was the difference between flat-fee payments made to divorce attorneys and retainer fee agreements, so please view that article for more information.
The bottom line, however, is that a truly effective divorce attorney will not be able to give you a definitive number when it comes to the cost of your divorce. Rather, you should look for a divorce attorney who seeks to gain a thorough understanding of your situation, the desired outcomes of both you are your spouse, how those outcomes match-up and/or conflict, and who can give you a sound estimate for the cost of your divorce based on those factors.
