You thought it was forever, but you were wrong. You’re in good company, though – almost half of all marriages ultimately end in divorce. Still, that leaves you in a difficult situation. You’re now facing the dissolution of your marriage, and you need legal help. How do you choose between Schaumberg divorce lawyers, though? What sets one family law attorney apart from another?
Get Recommendations and Research Options
The first thing you’ll need to do is start building a list of possible divorce attorneys. You can do this in some ways, but one of the better options is to ask friends or family who has been through a divorce themselves. That can give you access to firsthand experience on which to base your decision. You can also conduct research online to help flesh out your list of options.
Choose Experienced Family Law Attorneys
You should now have a list of potential options. Some of those might not be family law attorneys, though. Go through and immediately mark any lawyers who do not focus on family law off your list. You need someone with significant experience and expertise on your side.
Have a Consultation
Your next step is to contact the offices of the attorneys remaining on your list. Arrange for a consultation with all of them. You may want to let them know that you are considering other attorneys as well and that you’ll be making your decision based on the outcome of the consultation. During your consultation, you’ll want to not only explain your impending divorce and the underlying situation, but get a feel for the attorney, their experience, and their willingness to work with you. If you’re not comfortable with any attorney, immediately mark them off your list of potential candidates.
Finally, make sure that the attorney you’re considering is within your price range. You should also realize that high-priced attorneys are not necessarily any better than those who cost less – their hourly rates are different. While “you get what you pay for” is an applicable truism in some areas, it does not apply in the world of law.
