Choose The Right Attorney For Your Divorce

By Gerald A. Maggio, Esq.

Top Orange County divorce mediators; California Divorce MediatorsOne of the best bits of advice that you should adhere to is to seek and retain a family law/divorce attorney to handle your divorce case. Just because you were referred to an attorney by a friend or family member does not mean that you should hire them, particularly if they practice another area of law other than family law/divorce. An attorney whose main area of practice is family law/divorce is going to know family law, the local court rules and procedures, the family law judges, and the opposing counsel, and that will have a direct bearing on getting a better settlement or better outcome if your case otherwise goes to trial.

Moreover, your case may involve a family business or other complicated joint assets, or underemployed spouse, and may require the use of forensic accountants, vocational evaluators, and other experts, and only a family law/divorce attorney is going to know the best options of who to use based on the need. Such experts will also assist with settlement, and assist in litigation if your case otherwise does not settle.
