Preparing for divorce can be overwhelming to think about, especially for people with children and many assets. It can be almost impossible to know where to begin in the process. It is important to take baby steps to finalizing your divorce, and to remember you are not alone. A divorce attorney can help guide you through every step, but there are a few questions you need to ask before immediately hiring a legal aid. This video mentions 15 questions you should think over before investing in a family lawyer.
First of all, you want to do a few checks on the lawyer you are considering. Check out their reviews online, and if you feel like they may be a good fit, meet with them. Ask them their credentials and how long they have been practicing in family law. If you aren’t satisfied with their answers or they hesitate to share their history, it is time to move to another candidate. Additionally, you should ask how many of your potential lawyers past cases have gone to trial. A lower number implies a good negotiator, and a favorable choice in lawyer.
