If you are considering a divorce, everything in your life is about to change significantly. Choosing the right family lawyer can make all the difference in ensuring that you understand all the repercussions of this major decision. You have many different factors to consider, including custody and child support, property division, alimony/spousal support, and more.
Experience is an important factor in considering a family lawyer’s skill level. When you attend an initial consultation with a family lawyer, consider asking the following questions:
- How many years have you been practicing family law?
- Do you limit your practice to family law and related areas?
- How often do you handle cases similar to mine?
- What resources do you have access to?
- In your opinion, what is the best strategy to help me resolve my case?
- Do you have trial experience?
A good family lawyer should answer the above questions clearly and directly, giving you confidence in their background and abilities. Most importantly, they should demonstrate a sincere interest in your case. Your lawyer will be living through a difficult time with you, so you need to feel comfortable with that person and have confidence in his/her ability to help you and provide you with sound advice and counsel.
