How to choose the right divorce lawyer

August 07 2017

Going through a divorce can be one of the most challenging things you have to face in your lifetime and thus, when it comes to getting legal support, it is important you get the right one for you own needs.

A good divorce lawyer and a high-quality law firm, can be expensive, but it is something you should not skimp on. A good lawyer will make the process easier, quicker and hopefully, make the whole thing less painful. There are a few things you need to consider when choosing the right divorce lawyer for you. Which we have listed below:


It is important to remember that you have asked for the help of a divorce lawyer to assist in the dissolving of your assets and resolving custody issues. It is their job to do this to the best of their ability. It is not their job to coach, provide therapy or anything else. You want to pick a lawyer who can do their job the best, not a job they are not trained to do, which will cost you time, effort and money.

Stay focused and know what you want

Once again, remember to stay focussed on what you want to achieve and know what you want. Try not to let emotions run wild and mean you get caught up on things which in a few months or years’ time will be irrelevant. Try to look at the wider picture and the type of divorce you want.

Take recommendations

Going through a divorce has become more common, with more people getting divorced. As a result, you may have a friend or colleague who has been through one recently on in the past. It might not be appropriate, but if it is, ask them who they used and what their experienced were with their divorce lawyer. This can, if they are happy with who they used, help save you time and give you a bit more confidence, knowing it worked for someone in your inner circle.
