8 Questions to Ask Your Mesa Divorce Lawyer

When you'Γƒ‚Γ‚™re preparing to go through a divorce, it'Γƒ‚Γ‚™s already a difficult and overwhelming time.  You know that you need an attorney, but you have no idea where to start in asking questions to your Mesa divorce lawyer.  Here are some tips on where to start.

What Are Your Fees?
Not all attorneys use the same fee structure.  Some offer a fixed fee for their services while others charge an hourly rate.  You may be required to pay a retainer up front.  You'll want to know all of this ahead of time so that you can be financially prepared.

Do You Specialize in Divorce and Family Law Issues?
You want to know that the lawyer you anticipate hiring has experience in handling divorce cases, especially if there will be complex custody and asset division issues.

How Many Cases Have You Taken to Trial?
Most divorce cases settle outside of court.  If your case goes to trial, you want to be sure you have a Mesa divorce lawyer with courtroom experience.

Are There Additional Costs Expected?
If your case may involve the use of private investigators or expert witnesses, you will want to know the anticipated costs.

Are There Ways to Keep My Costs Down?
Does your attorney allow you to negotiate directly with your spouse?  Are there things that you can do for your case that will reduce the cost?

What Can I Expect During the Divorce Proceedings?
Based on the details of your case, your attorney should be able to provide you with an anticipated timeline for the conclusion of your divorce.

What is the Best Way to Achieve my Goals?
With an experienced attorney, they will be able to provide you with an outline for the best way to achieve the outcome you wish.  They will be able to recommend whether you are best suited by negotiating an early settlement, or if going to trial will be more of a benefit to you.  If there are immediate issues to handle such as emergency orders or restraining orders, your Mesa divorce lawyer can give you insight on the best way to proceed.

What Can I Do to Protect Myself Now?
Before you leave your attorneys office, you will want to know whether there are things that you should be doing immediately to help yourself.  They can provide advice on what to do about joint financial and credit accounts along with other issues.

If you have questions about the divorce process or would like to schedule an appointment to learn more, please feel free to contact us for more information.
