qualities of Michigan divorce attorneyMany people on the verge of a divorce are traveling down this road for the first time. Knowing where to begin with such a journey can be daunting and overwhelming. It’s essential to enlist the services of a Michigan divorce attorney you trust so you know you’ll be taken care of throughout your divorce process. As you interview potential divorce lawyers, look for qualities that will make you feel good about your present and future.

1. The Right Experience

Approach your lawyer selection with one goal in mind – to find an experienced divorce lawyer. You’re not just looking for any attorney. Your BFF’s cousin’s husband who is a tax attorney is not the right choice for your divorce journey. Think about it: You wouldn’t visit a dermatologist for back pain. Choose a divorce attorney, period.

2. A Strategic Location

It’s always wise to work with an attorney who practices regularly in your jurisdiction, who is familiar with the judges you may see in divorce court, and who knows the ins and outs of Michigan divorce law. Familiarity does not breed contempt when it comes to divorce – your attorney’s knowledge of your divorce court’s rules can absolutely work in your favor.

3. Genuine Compassion

Though the emotional, mental, and financial difficulties that many divorcing couples experience are similar, your divorce is unique to you. You want a divorce attorney who knows the feelings you are likely to experience, respects them, and is empathetic to your very personal journey, concerns, fears, and frustrations. Find a Michigan divorce attorney who listens to you, and actually hears you.

4. Reasonable Cost

Looking for a divorce attorney is not the time to go bargain hunting. You want a lawyer who meets your requirements and has the chops to get the job done. The experienced, knowledgeable lawyer who is well-versed in their field will save you money, even if they have a higher hourly rate. You don’t have to shell out the big bucks everywhere, though – the right divorce attorney knows you need to keep your expenses reasonable. Here are 5 ways to save keep Michigan divorce costs down.

5. Good Communication

Some divorces take a long time, some can be wrapped up relatively quickly. Either way, make it known to your potential divorce attorney what your expectations you have regarding communication throughout the process. Find the lawyer who will provide timely updates, if not directly then through their paralegal. Choose a lawyer who writes well – the divorce documentation should be impeccable, free of misspellings or incorrect dates or facts – and speaks well in front of you and a judge and any other relevant parties.
