Questions to Ask Your Divorce Attorney

You’re moving toward a divorce, which means that you naturally have questions and concerns about what lies ahead. While your divorce is unique to your marriage and the circumstances involved, the answers to the following questions can help you better prepare for what’s to come. One of the most important things anyone facing a divorce can do to help protect their rights from the outset is reaching out to an experienced divorce attorney early in the process, and this also pertains to you.  

Is Divorce and Family Law Your Specialty?

You’re facing a California divorce, and you’re looking for a divorce attorney who has a wealth of experience successfully guiding cases like yours toward advantageous outcomes. If the attorney you’re considering is a jack-of-all-trades, he or she may not be a good fit – especially if your divorce is complicated by any of the following challenges:

  • High assets
  • Business ownership
  • Contentiousness 
  • Complicated child custody concerns

How Can I Get in Touch with You?

Divorce is exceptionally stressful, and you need your divorce attorney to be readily available to you. As such, it’s important to know how you’ll be communicating and how accessible the prospective attorney is.  While you can’t expect your attorney to be there to take your call around the clock, his or her actions should indicate that your case is a priority. Consider his or her responses to all the following: 

  • Can I reach you on the phone when necessary? 
  • Will anyone else be working on my case?
  • How long do you typically take to respond to emails?

Your case is important, and you want your divorce attorney to treat it as such. 

What Are My Case’s Biggest Challenges?

Your prospective divorce attorney should be able to discuss your case’s most significant challenges with you. This should include a discussion about how long your divorce is likely to take. Although divorce attorneys don’t have crystal balls, the right divorce attorney for you will help you better understand how your case is likely to proceed.

What Can I Do to Help?

You and your divorce attorney are a team, and better understanding what you can do to propel your case forward while protecting your rights can help. Your attorney may advise you to bolster your case by collecting financial documentation in support of your financial rights, for example. He or she may also advise you to lay low on social media while your case is pending – in an effort to avoid fanning any fires and/or to avoid inadvertently providing your divorcing spouse with any ammunition against you.
