Family law is a tricky business; so firstly, you want to hire an attorney that knows the rules, the laws, and the overall process. You wouldn't go to a cardiologist if you were having problems with your feet, right? So you want an attorney who practices exclusively family law for your family law matters. Secondly, you want an attorney that you can trust, and can have open lines of communication. So I suggest that you speak with several attorneys to get a feel for each one, and choose the one you are most comfortable with. You want one who can explain things to you so that you understand what is expected, what is going to happen, and that all of your questions have been answered. Remember, this is a collaborative effort with the attorney you ultimately hire, so choose the one with whom you are able to communicate with.
Thirdly, any family law matter is emotionally charged and complicated. The highest litigated issues in a dissolution/divorce case are custody, visitation and support. These 3 issues represent the majority of litigation in Courts today. Keep in mind that the attorney is well versed in how to handle the issues. What you want to ensure is that the way the attorney handles them is the same way you want them to be handled in your case. Every case is different!
When meeting with any attorney, you want to ask about their court experience, and case management style. Some attorneys are litigators, and prefer to fight about all in court, and spend thousands and thousands of dollars. Some attorneys do not even go into court one time. You want an attorney that will suit what you want to accomplish in your case. Do not be afraid to ask for what you want!
