Four Tips for Choosing a Divorce Attorney in Illinois

Posted on in Divorce

IUL divorce lawyerMaking the decision to get a divorce is difficult and complex and should never be made lightly. In addition to the impact on any children, you will need to consider the impact of a divorce on your property and finances. Divorce is never easy, but in order to make it smooth as possible, you should also ensure that your personal interests are understood, respected, and represented. Making the wrong choice of a divorce attorney can be costly in terms of time and money.

As you begin the process of choosing a divorce attorney, here are a few tips to help you find exactly the representation you want and need:

  • Do plenty of research – There is more than one way to end your marriage, and the kind of divorce attorney you hire may change depending on the method you choose. If you want a cooperative, mediation-driven divorce, attorneys who focus on courtroom battles may not be the right choice. An attorney should not pressure you to do something you are not comfortable with. The attorneys at A. Traub & Associates have experience with different types of divorce in Illinois and will work with you to choose the path that is right for you.
  • Take your time – You may be eager to end your marriage and get on with your life, but rushing through the important decisions can be costly in terms of time and money. Interview several law firms and get a sense of what different firms have to offer. Make sure you really know your options before you make a decision.
  • Figure out what you want, and do not settle for less – If you are looking for an attorney who is going to keep you informed throughout the process, say so. If you want someone who will take charge and let you be more hands-off, express that preference and make sure the firms you are considering are okay with that. If your children’s schedule means that you need someone whose office is close to where you live, keep that in mind.
  • Focus and prioritize – In divorce, there is no “winner.” Nobody gets exactly everything they want. Choose an attorney who will help you figure out your priorities, and then will help you let go of the unimportant things.
