In Texas, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to divorce. Every family is different. Relationship dynamics vary from couple to couple, and what works for some may not work for others. When looking for the best divorce attorney, you want the best fit for you. Similarly, a good divorce lawyer wants to work with clients who are a good fit for them as well.
What are you looking for?
The first step is to decide what kind of attorney you’re looking for. Do you want a bulldog who is going to bark about every single thing, or do you want an attorney whose priority is negotiating and settling quickly and fairly? There’s no shortage of different types of attorneys, and the way to find your best fit is to decide ahead of time how you want to be represented.
Once you decide on the type of attorney and representation you want, you will speak with family law firms to get a feel for how they practice. Read reviews and testimonials, check out their website and see what kind of information they share, attend their workshops, find interviews they’ve done. Think of it a little like dating and find a fit that feels right for you.
How will you be represented?
Now that you’ve found a family law attorney you feel good about, you want to know that they will represent you to the best of their ability. Is your ex threatening you with statements like “I’m not going to pay child support. I’m going to take the kids away from you. You’re not going to get anything.”? Those are tactics to get in your head, and your attorney should help you manage them. Ask your attorney for advice. The best divorce attorneys can focus on getting you divorced and not get distracted by cheap tricks.
