How To Choose a Divorce Attorney

Nobody gets married with the idea of a divorce in the future, which means that going through a divorce is often an emotionally trying time. Unfortunately, many divorces are not as amicable as they could be, which means the need for a divorce lawyer is common. Choosing the right one to meet your needs is important.

Know What You Want

Not all divorce lawyers are created equally. Some focus on alimony and the division of assets while others are better at helping you create plans for co-parenting children. Consider your needs and wants in the divorce and find a divorce attorney Tampa that meets those needs. Will the lawyer you choose be able to sit down and help you create plans? What if your ex-spouse decides to fight you in court? Will your attorney be able to stand up to your ex in front of a judge? Consider all of this when choosing your attorney. 

Find Out How Much You'll Pay

The amount of money that you'll spend on your attorney is important. Divorce can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars, depending on how amicable it is. The faster you get through the process, the less you'll pay. Keep in mind that most lawyers charge at least $100 an hour and bill in 15-minute increments. Ask your attorney how much he or she charges, how they bill, and whether you can pay at the end of the divorce process or if you need to pay throughout the process. This will help you to plan out your payments so there are no surprises. 

Interview Your Attorney

When you've narrowed down your list of potential lawyers to two or three, it's time to put them through the interview process. Ask what made them choose to work in divorce cases, how much experience they have, and whether they specialize in a specific type of divorce situation. Ask how they handle the day-to-day case, how often they will communicate with you, and whether they will be able to represent you should you end up in a trial. Go with your gut feeling when choosing an attorney. 

Nobody wants to go through the divorce process, but having the right kind of lawyer on your side can make the process bearable. By interviewing your attorney, ensuring that you can afford their cost, and communicating with them often, you will be able to get through the divorce as quickly as possible and move on with your life.
