Selecting the right divorce lawyer will be the most important decision you make once you decide to divorce. When choosing a divorce attorney, their experience in the field of Family Law is your main criteria. Below are must-haves when it comes to choosing a divorce attorney to represent you.
- Your divorce attorney should have considerable experience handling divorces in your geographic area. You want an attorney who has a relationship with other local attorneys and knows the judges who preside over divorce cases in your area.
