selecting the right divorce professional

Selecting the right divorce professional can be confusing!

Here follows a set of guidelines for selecting a divorce professional:

Select a divorce professional with the right type of training/background for your needs. Divorce professionals all fall into different scopes of practice (see divorce lawyers vs divorce mediators) and you need to take this into account before selecting a divorce professional.

Do you ‘click’ with your divorce professional? Your relationship with your divorce professional is essential to get the results you want. Choose someone with whom you feel comfortable and secure. Divorce professionals are all unique and there will be someone out there for you.

Interview more than one divorce professional. Some divorce professionals are happy to speak with you or meet with you in order to get to know you and your situation. You can use this time as an opportunity to gather information and an impression about the divorce professional’s style. Compare two or three divorce professionals and select the one who seems most appropriate to you. Trust yourself to know what you need and allow your instinct to tell you if the person in front of you feels like a good fit!

Consider your divorce professional’s experience and techniques. A divorce professional with knowledge and experience of treating certain problems is sometime beneficial. Most divorce professionals’ specialize in several areas and therefore can often adapt to your needs as the client.

Ask the prospective divorce professional questions. Good divorce professionals are willing to answer your questions directly and openly. Consider asking questions about their depth of experience, qualifications, skills, and procedures.

Ask about fees. Make sure you understand how much a divorce professional charges.
