A couple weeks ago, I was contacted by a divorce attorney who was looking for someone to represent her in her divorce case.
“We have a lot of people coming in to defend our clients, so we’ve been getting quite a bit of calls,” said the divorce lawyer.
She wasn’t kidding.
I recently spoke with a divorce lawyer who was working on a divorce case in California.
She had been representing a woman who lost her job and her job is now being outsourced.
“She’s now got a new job and she’s struggling to make ends meet,” she said.
The divorce lawyer said she didn’t think there was any need for a divorce specialist because most people who lost their jobs would have had to move back in with their ex-partners or go back to school.
But that’s not the case with the divorce attorney.
“When people lose their jobs, they lose everything,” she explained.
“They lose everything.”
In her case, the divorce went to mediation and mediation was successful.
“The problem was, she had no financial resources.
I was going to need a divorce law expert,” she added.
I called and asked what the experts recommended.
I received this response from an attorney who said, “I don’t recommend that anyone use a divorce consultant.”
What did she mean by that?
She was not advocating against divorce consultants but she did say that the best advice would be to use a qualified divorce lawyer to represent your divorce.
It’s not uncommon for divorce attorneys to get very specific in their recommendations and she said she was surprised by how few people actually went through with that.
“A lot of times the lawyer will be a bit reluctant to say, ‘Oh, I don’t know how to do this,’ ” she said, but then she would say, “Go get a divorce expert.”
In an article published in the New York Times last year, divorce lawyer and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani said that divorce consultants were “an old-fashioned form of divorce counseling that’s just not the same as an attorney.”
“It’s a professional relationship that’s based on a professional level, a level of trust and respect, but also a level that’s confidential and you don’t have to share anything with them,” he said.
“It is a kind of an old-school kind of counseling that doesn’t have a professional side to it.”
“People get frustrated with the lawyers they have, and they get frustrated because they have to pay them,” the divorce advocate said.
If the divorce is in dispute, it is unlikely that the divorce specialist will have an extensive background in divorce law.
“In general, people will never be able to get a good divorce,” said divorce attorney and divorce advocate Sarah McBride.
A divorce attorney told me that many people think divorce consultants are experts who will tell them exactly how to handle the situation and that’s fine. “
People want to believe that the expert will know what to do, but that’s a false promise.”
A divorce attorney told me that many people think divorce consultants are experts who will tell them exactly how to handle the situation and that’s fine.
“But when you get into a divorce, you have to learn how to live with it,” she told me.
She said that a divorce can be difficult to negotiate and that a lot can happen before the judge even gets to the divorce trial.
“You’re in the middle of it and the lawyer can’t possibly know everything,” McBride said.
I asked what advice would I give to someone who is going through a divorce.
“Don’t hire a divorce-preparation expert,” the attorney said.
If you can’t find a professional, hire one who is. “
If you’re in a situation where you’re facing a divorce and you want to hire a lawyer, go find one who knows the law and who can talk to you about your case.
It takes time for you to get ready to fight this thing. “
This whole process takes time.
It takes time for you to get ready to fight this thing.
I would recommend that you go find a law firm to hire someone who knows what they’re talking about.”
“I’d recommend that the lawyer is a good lawyer and a good advocate,” the divorced person added.
They are both right.
It can be hard to find a good law firm, especially if you are a new client, especially in divorce.
I found the firm I went to in the Bay Area was pretty reputable and that they were very helpful.
But I would tell you that a lawyer can be very expensive and that it takes a lot more time to hire an attorney.
You can also get advice from an expert who may have more experience in the divorce than you do.
And then you’re dealing with lawyers who are not lawyers, not experts, and who have
