What to Ask a Divorce Attorney
When you're considering a divorce lawyer, there are several questions to ask. One question is whether you will be charged a flat fee or hourly as hourly rates can become quite costly even if you have a relatively easy divorce. Furthermore, if you expect that your spouse will pay attorney fees as part of your divorce agreement, you want to seek a divorce lawyer who will allow you to pay for at least a portion of those fees at the time of divorce rather than an attorney who requires a hefty upfront sum.
Furthermore, if you want an amicable divorce that is better for your family or children, a mediation attorney can help you to put aside differences to come to an agreement that's both fair and healthy. Search specific for a meditation attorney, and both you and your spouse may find yourself less stressed by the divorce process. Attorneys who don't focus on mediation often draw out the process because it's financially beneficial to themselves, even if your divorce should be simple.
