5 tips for choosing good divorce solicitors
Browsing the internet for a divorce solicitor can be an overwhelming task. Most firms appear to offer the same services, and it is hard to distinguish one from the other. So, who should you call? Should it be the divorce solicitor closest to you geographically, or the one with the best website?
In a word – no. You do not need a local solicitor, as most of the work is done via the phone, post and email. And as the old saying goes, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Instead, research different firms and find the answers to the following questions. If you answer ‘yes’ to all five, you can be confident you have found a good divorce solicitor.
Do they specialise in divorce?
Not all lawyers who deal with divorce are actually specialists. Really, you should find someone who is a qualified solicitor. This means they are registered with the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority and the Law Society. Also, you should find a solicitor who works solely in family law. A solicitor who dabbles in divorce may not have the expertise needed for your case.
Are they members of Resolution?
Good divorce solicitors are typically members of Resolution. This is a national organisation of family lawyers committed to non-confrontational divorce. Although you might want to take your ex-spouse to court, this can be expensive and prolongs the process. A solicitor who understands collaborative law can help you resolve your divorce quickly and efficiently, with the least amount of pain possible.
Do they have the necessary experience?
The breakdown of a relationship creates many complexities. There may be assets to divide, Court Orders to obtain and child care arrangements to negotiate. All of this requires the input of an experienced divorce solicitor. Check that the person dealing with your case has the experience needed. Otherwise, you may have to switch solicitors halfway through, which can be disruptive.
Do they have the ‘likeability’ factor?
You will have to work closely with your divorce solicitor for months, possibly even years. Therefore, it is essential that you like, trust and have confidence in your legal team. Most divorce solicitors offer a free initial enquiry. During this conversation, you can get a feel for the firm and decide whether it has the likeability factor.
Are you happy with the fees?
Different divorce solicitors charge different fees. Also, some charge by an hourly rate, some offer legal aid, and some offer a fixed fee. Ask about the legal costs before any work begins on your case. Only proceed if you are happy with the proposed fees. If you cannot afford it, look elsewhere.
