What Should I Ask At My Initial Consultation?

You will likely need to share many intimate personal details with your attorney, so before you hire one, ensure that the attorney is a good fit - both personally and professionally. Here are some topics we recommend:

1. How many times have you handled a case like mine?

You want to know the attorney has significant legal experience handling divorce and family law cases in your state. If you own a business, make sure you ask about their relevant experience.

2. What are my divorce options?

The attorney you choose should be well-versed in different methods for resolving divorce-related disputes. Your attorney should explain your options and help you make an informed decision. This includes your options for no-fault, uncontested, and collaborative divorce.

3. How much will my divorce cost?

While no attorney will be able to definitively say the exact cost of your divorce during a consultation, he or she should discuss the cost factors and provide reasonable estimates given certain circumstances. This is among the many reasons why divorcing spouses need to be wary of "cheap divorce" promotions online.

4. How should I prepare for my divorce?

An experienced attorney should provide you with information about how to prepare for your divorce. This includes both proactive steps and common mistakes to avoid.
