Let's talk about divorce. Contacting a divorce attorney may be hard enough, but asking the real questions may be harder. When a woman goes through divorce, it is hard to stay focused on what to ask and what not to.
To help our listeners, I have listed some essential questions to ask your attorney.
What is your hourly rate?
How much is the upfront retainer?
How much do you bill?
Do you exclusively practice family law?
What exactly is the process?
What is your philosophy?
What is your post-divorce follow-up process?
Would you consider yourself a low-conflict or litigation attorney?
Are you familiar with the judges in my county?
Overwhelming? It really shouldn't be. Listen in as I dig step-by-step into these questions. If we ask the right questions, we will get the right answers.
