FINDING AN ATTORNEY YOU CAN WORK WITH, AND ONE THAT WORKS WITH YOU!
One of the many struggles women have during divorce is not knowing either how to find the right attorney, or particularly what to ask an attorney in order to determine if the attorney is a good fit once they have scheduled a consultation.
I’ve put together a comprehensive list of all the questions you should ask the attorney in your consultation–remember, YOU are interviewing THEM for a job! Thinking of your discussion this way can help you feel confident during your meeting. Also, you want to be sure to ask the questions that are most pertinent to YOUR divorce. All divorces are different, and some attorneys are good for others [your sister, your BFF, your neighbor] that might not really be a good fit for you. You’ll need to get a feel for what their approach to divorce is and how they operate to learn enough about them to make your decision.
In this comprehensive resource, I cover:
How to get to know the attorney, their approach, and their team
How to communicate with them, their fees, and how you will be billed
How they handle emergency cases that might include substance, spousal, child abuse, or other matters of an urgent nature
Questions you should ask about assets and finances
Questions you should ask regarding alimony and child support
