Divorce is a stressful time for everyone. There are a lot of hard emotions to deal with, maybe even kids to think about, and on top of that, you need to check with a divorce attorney. Divorce attorneys may not be cheap, but they can help relieve the stress of a clean vacation because all parties are well cared for.
To ensure that you have found the right divorce attorney, you need to find one that you are comfortable with throughout the process. Sometimes it's helpful to get a divorce attorney recommendation from a friend who's been through a divorce process. However, every situation is different, so it's important that you interview a number of divorce attorneys before making a decision for you.
There are several questions to ask while listening to a divorce attorney that will give you a good basis for your final decision.
Initial consultation – free or for a fee
Before you physically go and meet with your prospective divorce attorney, make sure they charge an initial consultation fee. In large cities such as Los Angeles and Chicago, divorce attorneys charge a small fee for the initial consultation. While this practice shouldn't stop you from seeing an attorney, think twice about interviewing a divorce attorney who charges hefty fees for the initial consultation. These attorneys can sometimes specialize in high profile divorce and if not, you may not need their experience.
