What to look for in a divorce attorney

Posted by Frank Gray on November 2nd, 2022

Divorce is never an easy process, but you can reduce your stress level significantly by knowing what to look for in a divorce attorney and how to approach one.

When one or both of you decide to get divorced, it can be overwhelming and confusing. You might wonder what you are getting yourself into, who you will have to deal with, and how you will keep your life together while leaving it behind. There are many considerations when you select a divorce attorney.

A lot of people are wondering what to look for in a divorce attorney. They want to make sure that their lawyer has all the necessary training and experience to handle their case. Some people even worry about how much their attorney will charge them. Many factors could affect your decision in choosing the right lawyer, but several important things should be looked at regardless of whether you're hiring a one-man or a big firm law firm.

Things you should know before hiring a divorce attorney

Divorce attorneys are not just for people who are getting divorced. They can also help people who have been separated for years but need to finalize their divorce. Divorce attorneys can help with all aspects of divorce including child custody and visitation, property division, and alimony payments.

Here are some things you should know before hiring a divorce attorney:

  1. First, you should get the name of the attorney from their website or office. If they don't list it, then you don't have anyone to send your questions to. You could try calling their office, but many attorneys won't be able to answer questions over the phone and will send you to someone who can.

  1. Second, find out if they have any qualifications that make them a good fit for your needs. If they don't have any experience in family law, don't hire them! Even if they have experience in other areas of law and are willing to take on your case, they must specialize in family law because it's what you're going through at this time in your life.

  1. Thirdly, find out how long it might take for them to get back to you about your case. If you want an answer right away, a good divorce attorney won't waste time waiting around for another client like some other types of lawyers might do!


Finding a good divorce attorney is, like most things in life, easier said than done. And when you're already in the middle of a high-stress situation like a divorce, making informed decisions can be tough. That's why you need to do your research if you want to find an attorney who's right for your case and your budget. And while we can't guarantee that we've answered all of your questions with this list, hopefully, it'll help you sift through some of your options.

After finding a divorce attorney with these three qualities, you should be off to a great start in your relationship. It's all about building trust and getting everything out on the table upfront. This can help you make better decisions about where to go from there.
