Top Ten Questions to Ask During Your Initial Consultation with a Family Law Attorney

During your initial consultation, the attorney will likely ask you a lot of questions to determine whether they can take on your case. You should also ask questions to ensure that they are the right attorney for you and your case. Here are the top critical questions to ask a family law attorney during your consultation.

  1. How long have you been a family law attorney?
  2. Do you have experience with cases similar to mine?
  3. How do you prefer to communicate with your clients?
  4. Do you think my case will go to court or can it be resolved alternatively?
  5. What strategy would you employ for my case?
  6. Who else from your team will be working on the case and can I meet them?
  7. How involved would you like me to be in the case?
  8. What laws are most applicable to my case?
  9. How much are your services and how will I be charged (i.e. flat rate, hourly, etc.)?
  10. Why should I retain your services?

Why You May Need a Bend Family Law Attorney

No one wishes or plans to have to hire a family law attorney. However, when a legal issue arises, hiring a qualified attorney is the right choice. A family law attorney can:

  • Offer you objective advice. During a divorce, custody proceeding, or family law case, you will likely experience a wide range of emotions. Even in the most amicable situations or if you initiated the proceedings, you can feel angry, sad, frustrated, or lost. Rather than make an emotional decision, your attorney can offer you fact-based, objective counsel.
  • Connect you with consultants and expert witnesses. In various family law proceedings, you may need help or testimony from witnesses, such as a forensic accountant, appraiser, or mental health expert. Many attorneys have connections as they have previously worked with these professionals.
  • Prepare you for court. During hearings, you should adhere to courtroom policies by dressing appropriately, addressing the judge properly, etc. Your attorney cannot only help you understand what to expect in court but may also be familiar with the opposing counsel and judge, which can be a great advantage.
  • Advise you of your legal options. Rather than litigate or go to court, you may consider divorce mediation or other alternative dispute resolutions. After reviewing your case, your attorney can advise you of your options and help you make an informed decision concerning what option is best for you.
