How long have you been practicing family law? It’s best to familiarize yourself with the experience they have. You want a lawyer who has handled many divorce cases before.

Do you’ve experience with cases like mine? Every divorce is different. Be sure they’ve worked on cases like yours, whether it’s about custody, property, or other issues. Who will handle my case? Sometimes, the lawyer you meet may not be the one who works on your case. Ask if they’ll personally handle your case or if it’ll go to someone else.

How will you communicate with me? Good communication is key. Ask if they’ll update you by phone, email, or meetings. And how often you’ll hear from them. What are your fees? Lawyers charge in different ways. Some have a flat fee, others charge by the hour. Establish the amount you need to pay.

Are there any additional costs? Besides the lawyer’s fees, there could be costs for court filing or expert witnesses. Make sure you know all possible expenses. What is your strategy for my case? Ask how they plan to approach your case. It’s good to know if they’ll try to settle out of court or if they think you need to go to trial.


Every divorce is different.
