Your Attorney Client Relationship Is Important!
When you consult an attorney for the first time, be prepared to provide basic information. It is helpful to gather copies of financial documents. For instance, the deed to your home, deed to other real property, copies of the last two (2) tax returns and financial statements that you may have filled out.
Determine exactly what the fees are. The attorney you select should be able to explain all aspects of a divorce from beginning to end. He or she should also be able to explain how much he/she bills at an hourly rate, and whether or not the client pays for costs and what those costs are. Some attorneys bill at a flat fee. However, the norm is to be billed on an hourly basis. Family Law attorneys do not bill on a percentage of the estate or the outcome of the case.
Ensure confidentiality and be open about your situation. Your attorney should be candid with you about your rights, and anything you discuss with your attorney is covered under the attorney-client privilege. It is very important that you are open and honest with your attorney. What you tell your attorney is confidential and protected from disclosure later, even if you choose not to retain your attorney.
Most attorneys, after the initial consultation will present the client with enough information to determine if now is the time to approach the divorce or if it’s better to wait. Generally, clients should not necessarily commit that date to their attorney. It is helpful to go home, think about what has been discussed, and make sure that the attorney is the right one for your case.
