How Do I Find An Affordable Divorce Lawyer?

Posted by Cameron Goulding | May 26, 2020 | 0 Comments

The question of how much a divorce will cost is one of the biggest concerns that many people have when faced with the possibility that the marriage might be over.  There are several costs involved in a divorce: the emotional toll, the division of property and debts, potential alimony or spousal support or child support.  Those costs are beyond the scope of this blog and are addressed throughout my website and in previous blogs.  Today I am addressing the issue of attorney fees.

If you have a relatively simple divorce matter and you and your spouse appear to be in agreement about how to handle custody and parenting time or how to divide your property and move forward, then you should be able to find an affordable divorce lawyer.  I have offered clients like this a reasonable flat rate for up to a set number of hours to discuss the case, offer some potential alternative solutions to the issues based upon my twenty-four years of experience in the law, prepare the documents and come with you to court to make sure that everything goes smoothly.

The next question that often comes up is: do both of us need to hire an attorney. The answer is no, you do not have to both have attorneys, but at least one of you should have an attorney for the reasons mentioned above. A family law attorney cannot represent both spouses in a divorce, only one.  However, the attorney can talk with the other spouse and if both spouses agree there is nothing stopping the attorney from preparing the documents to accurately reflect the agreement that the parties have reached either on their own or with the help of the attorney.  Further, if there is a snag, the attorney an offer some potential resolutions to solve the problem.
