Finding the right divorce attorney can save you time and money. Too many people prolong their already complex divorces and empty their bank accounts going through attorney after attorney until they get their desired results. To save you from this ordeal, our firm has compiled a list of tips for finding the legal dynamo you need for your complex New Jersey divorce.
Your divorce attorney is there to dissolve your legal relationship with your spouse and get you what you deserve. He or she is not there to be a supportive friend and side with you emotionally. You want a divorce attorney who will cut straight to business. Don’t expect a therapeutic friendship, but do expect someone who will advocate for you in court.
Admittedly, this can be very difficult to do for someone facing a complex New Jersey divorce. But the less you involve your emotions—and the more you exercise your business acumen—the happier you will be with the outcome. A divorce is like a business deal. If you can’t execute an agreement directly with your spouse, you call in attorneys to do it for you. It’s OK to be a little cutthroat when going through a complex divorce.
What are your priorities? Is it a quick divorce? Perhaps an affordable one? Getting your fair share of the assets? Or maybe you want full custody. Prioritizing your agenda will make it easier to find the right attorney for you. Once you know what you care most about, you can shop around and find the attorney that can best meet your needs.
You’d be surprised how many people waste their time and money by hiring and firing attorneys each time the judge denies their motion or grants the other spouse relief. In reality, a complex New Jersey divorce should be viewed as a process. It can take some time to get the outcome you want. There will be some back and forth between your attorneys, especially in litigation. You should find the attorney who will have the endurance needed to handle your complex divorce, not the one who can provide false promises of instant satisfaction.
Retaining the right New Jersey divorce attorney for you can lead to a quicker, and sometimes less expensive, divorce. But finding the right one out of a sea of competitors can be difficult. Find an attorney who has significant experience, but also consider whether you feel comfortable working with him or her. At the end of the day, you will be interacting with your attorney frequently over the coming months, so make sure you find an attorney you trust.
