How do I choose a divorce attorney?

Divorce is one of the worst words your spouse can say to you no matter how long you've been married. If your spouse approaches you regarding divorce and you know it's inevitable, you will need to get started immediately when it comes to finding a divorce attorney. So, how do you choose a divorce attorney in Canton?

One of the best ways to start a search for a divorce attorney is through friends and family members who have been through divorce. If their divorce was recently, that's an even better place to start. Find out how much the attorney knew about divorce, how the attorney handled the case, how questions were answered and how communication was with the attorney.

When you are meeting with a divorce attorney prior to making a selection, be sure to ask the right questions. You need to find out about their fees, their methods of communication, what to expect during the entire process, what happens if the case reaches court, how the attorney can help in mediation and much more.

You want to work with an attorney who will not sugarcoat issues surrounding divorce. This means that you will want honest answers from the attorney about your case and what you can expect. You can determine if the attorney will provide you with such a service by the conversations you have and the questions you ask during the consultation.

Are you headed for the end of your marriage in Georgia? If so, an attorney can help get the process started. You have a right to protect your interests in the divorce.
