When going through a divorce, there will be a multitude of questions on your mind. There will be questions that go nowhere and then there will be questions that play a part in deciding whether or not you choose a lawyer to represent you. The questions that help you make a smarter choice in lawyers are the ones you need to be concerned with. There are 5 questions that every person going through a divorce should ask their lawyer.
The first thing you need to do is determine what type of lawyer you need based on your legal issue. The categories of lawyers are varied but include civil law, family law, criminal law and taxation law.
Suing a lawyer is expensive so before you take the final step you should try: meeting your cashflow and laying the cards on the table, try and solve matters; complaint to the local Bar Association; or seek arbitration to resolve the dispute. If nothing works and you are confident of the strength of your case go ahead and sue the lawyer.
Go for a lawyer with ample years of experience. Divorce laws differ from state to state. You won’t want an inexperienced lawyer handling your case. He might not be at par with the divorce laws in your state.
Some people fail at financial management because they refuse to live with a budget. The most prominent reason that discourages people is the fact that budgeting seems like too much of a chore to do. While knowing all the details and tracking your expenses are important in budgeting, there are systems that will make it easier for you.
When the lawyer began to demand money from the woman, she should have responded to the bills and letters in writing with questions about the charges. She could have demanded an itemization of charges and an accounting of the retainer which she had paid.
Just because you meet with an attorney, without paying any fee, does not obligate you to sign up with or stay with that attorney. We hear so often in attorney advertising “There’s no obligation!” What this means is that you have a choice. If you like the attorney and are confident of their abilities, great! If you don’t, say “thank you for your time,” and move on to the next attorney. You are under no obligation to stay.
