When clients don’t feel good about their attorney, it makes a difficult process even harder and more complicated. So today, we thought it might be helpful to dive into when and how to go about hiring a legal professional so folks can find the right help and the right fit.

Much to our dismay, it still seems that most people believe the first step should be to go out and hire a fierce divorce lawyer. We know you’re probably getting all kinds of advice from friends, family and the internet that you need to protect yourself by getting the toughest lawyer out there so you can fight for what’s yours. But is that really what’s needed? And even so, is it the first step someone should take when thinking about divorce?

In this episode, we answer the questions:

  • Does everyone need a lawyer?
  • When should you consider hiring a divorce lawyer?
  • What are common mistakes people make when choosing an attorney?
  • What questions should you ask in a consultation?
  • What's the right way to hire a legal professional?

Whether you choose to retain a full-service attorney, use one on a consulting or as-needed basis, or just consult with a few to get some initial opinions and input, the lawyers you choose to interact with will have a big impact on how your divorce proceeds.  A certified divorce coach can support you in identifying if you need an attorney, when to schedule consultations, what's important for you to ask, and how to choose a legal professional that's right for you.
