3. What Is Your Approach To Handling A Divorce Case Like Mine?
Each attorney has their own method of handling a case, some may be more aggressive and some may be more compassionate. Keep in mind that the more arguing and the more back in forth in a case, the more expensive and the longer it will take to reach a final order.
4. Will There Be Additional Charges Besides Attorney Rates?
Be prepared for any additional charges you may have to pay for your divorce case, you’d be surprised to find out that some outside services may require additional fees not included in the retainment of an attorney. For example, some cases require a private investigator or another professional service that is not provided by the firm. It is always a good idea to get educated on any additional costs you may have to incur before your case starts.
5. Do You Specialize In Family Law Or Do You Practice Other Areas Of Law As Well?
Some lawyers specialize in only family law such as divorces and conservatorship, others may also practice probate and criminal law. Each law firm is different and may or may not handle certain types of cases. If a lawyer specializes in family law, they have a lot of experience with different types of divorce cases and family matters but they may not be able to handle a probate matter or a criminal matter not relating to the family.
