How to Choose the Right Ohio Divorce Attorney

Attempting to navigate the divorce process without an attorney is like traveling without a roadmap; there's no telling where you may end up. Therefore, if you are seeking a divorce in Ohio, you need an experienced Ohio divorce attorney in your corner. But with so many divorce attorneys out there, how do you choose the right one? In order to help you with your decision, below are some things you can do to ensure that you choose the right attorney for your case.

What to Consider When Choosing an Ohio Divorce Attorney

Choose an Attorney with Experience in Family Law

When choosing your divorce attorney, look for someone with ample family law experience. In addition, the attorney you choose should have experience handling cases similar to yours.

Choose an Attorney Who Is a Skilled Negotiator

Divorce cases involve negotiations. Therefore, the attorney you choose should be a skilled negotiator. When meeting with prospective attorneys, ask them about their negotiation experience.

Choose an Attorney Who Is Honest

Your attorney should be honest with you about your case. This means that he or she should review both the strengths and weaknesses of your case with you. In addition, your attorney should provide you with an honest assessment of the likely outcome of your case, the potential costs of your case, and whether your case has any major problems.

Choose an Attorney Who Doesn't Have Conflicts of Interest

Make sure the attorney you choose doesn't have interests that may conflict with your own. For example, you shouldn't hire a divorce attorney who has ties to your spouse. And this applies even if you expect your divorce to be amicable. If you think there is an reason at all that an attorney may not give you his or her best effort, you should choose someone else.

Choose an Attorney You're Comfortable With

Finally, although you don't have to become best friends with your attorney, you should ultimately choose someone you feel comfortable working with. You may be spending a lot of time with your attorney, so it's important that you have a good rapport with the person you choose to represent you in your divorce case. If you don't believe you'd feel comfortable discussing personal details of your life with a particular attorney, you're better off looking elsewhere for representation.
