Whether you are the one asking for the divorce or not, the question of how to choose the right divorce attorney always comes up. It can be overwhelming making this decision as you have many other decisions to make in this new territory. Choosing the right attorney is perhaps one of the most important decisions you will make during this entire process. You are going to depend on your attorney to guide and direct you in many, many decisions that will have lifelong effects. He or she will be advising you on topics such as child custody, child support, spousal support, division of assets, and the list goes on and on. Additionally, your lawyer is the one that gets you through the court system. You need someone that specializes in this arena with experience, expertise and a proven track record.

Or worse, resist the temptation to just not hire an attorney and you both use the same attorney. We’re not saying this never works, but the odds are not in your favor. Many clients end up hiring their own attorneys, because things don’t normally stay as amicable as they were in the beginning. Save yourself the time and money and hire your own attorney from the beginning.
