Question 5: What is your general overall impression of my case?

Finding the answer to this question is perhaps the single most important reason why people seek a consultation with a divorce attorney.  Skilled family lawyers will be able to put you in a place where you have a strong sense of what to expect ahead.  Given the specifics of your case, you should be able to have these general questions answered:

  1. What is the general timeframe we can expect with my divorce?  As is true with all family law matters, the case and the obstacles that need to be addressed in order to come to a full resolution. As you may be aware of other online resources, there are factors that will complicate your case and spread out the timeline.  Examples include the number of children that you may have with your spouse.  Financial considerations include how many assets and the debt you have together, including loans and marital property.
  2. Will you allow me to negotiate directly with my spouse? How will communication go between me and your law firm?  What are some things that I can do to help keep the overall costs of my divorce down?
  3. How does my divorce look in the eyes of the law? This can cover a wide range of topics including how things like alimony or spousal support will work, who will get to keep the marital home, and where the children will primarily live.
