Before you hire the divorce attorneys who will represent your rights in court, you will probably want to schedule one or two initial consultations with divorce attorneys who have been referred to you. At your initial meeting, the law office should give you, in broad terms, advice as to what you may expect with regards to child custody, visitation and support; division of property and maintenance or alimony. You should take careful notes during your meeting with a divorce attorneys. While many divorce attorneys do not charge for initial consultations, some of the more prestigious divorce attorneys will charge you for this meeting. You will need to determine if the reputation of the divorce attorney with whom you want to consult merits the cost involved. Some divorce attorneys will provide you with a written transcript of your consultation and the advice you were given. This certainly may warrant the costs involved.
Following your initial consultation you will hopefully be able to determine if you and the law office are compatible and if you can trust him or her. This feeling of “good chemistry” is difficult to describe but you will instinctively know when the relationship is right.
