Looking for the right attorney can be an arduous process, but it is an important one. Rushing through finding the right person to advocate on your behalf is a mistake, because this could mean the difference between a positive or negative outcome. Doing the proper research is essential, but it is most important that you meet with a legal representative directly, so you can ask them a number of detailed questions face-to-face.
The following are the top 10 questions to ask your lawyer:
- Do you focus solely on divorces, or are they one part of what your practice entails? Are you a family law specialist? How long have you been in practice?
- What is your strategy for my case, and how long will it take?
- What do you consider an emergency, and how long will it take for you to return my calls?
- Can I meet anyone and everyone else who will be working on my case with you?
- What is your pricing? How will you charge me?
- What other costs should I expect, such as for private investigators, accountants, physicians, psychologists, etc.?
- What do you estimate is the total cost of this divorce?
- Do you allow me to negotiate with my spouse, directly? Can you offer any ways to help me reduce the cost of my divorce?
- How do you predict a judge would rule my case, based on what you currently know?
- How can you help me understand the tax effect of this process?
