The decision to divorce is not an easy one and nor is the decision regarding which solicitor should represent you. We have come up with 5 simple tips which should help you find the ideal solicitor to help you through your divorce.
Dont use your normal solicitor – Although you might already have a solicitor you have used before; for example for a house purchase. It is nice to have a relationship with your solicitor but they might not be best suited to the situation. Solicitors tend to specialise in certain areas and it really helps to get the right horse for the right course. Much like you wouldnt get a carpenter to repair a leaky tap, youre better off getting a solicitor who is a divorce specialist representing you.
Visit the solicitor in person Your emotional and financial well-being may well be affected by the outcome of your divorce and the decision about who represents you shouldnt be taken lightly. You may well have to tell them secrets about your relationship and almost certainly will have to reveal your financial circumstances as well, so its important to find someone you trust and feel comfortable talking to in person.
