One of the most critical aspects in divorce filing is getting a divorce attorney to navigate for you the bewildering processes that combine government bureaucracy and family conflict in one package!

Some questions I would ask if I was to hire a divorce attorney
“Is what I want legally realistic?” There are many things you might want but may be unlikely to get in the California court system. Ask about the likelihood of getting your requests granted. Sometimes it is possible to know in advance, but not always for certain. A good lawyer is going to be able to make a much better guess at the “unknowable’s.”
- “How long will this take?”
- “What things effect the timing?”
- Do you have an alternative to the traditional “billable hour?” Ask about fixed fees, which limit risks for you.
- “If I want to keep the level of conflict to a minimum in my case, do you see yourself being able to collaborate with me and the other side in getting to a result we can all live with?”
- How much is this going to cost ball park in the “best case?” and if things don’t go as expected?
