How to Make a Divorce Easy with the Right Lawyer

Posted on the 26 December 2012 by Angelicolaw @AngelicoLaw

Getting a divorce is never something that is going to be easy, but when you want to get the process over with as simply as possible, using the right lawyer is key.  The actions you and your lawyer take can make or break the process, so choosing the right lawyer is the best thing you can do for your case.

Divorce can quickly turn into a nasty battle that can cost you a lot of time and money.  The worst mistake you can make is hiring the first lawyer you run across to be your divorce attorney.  Instead, you want to find a lawyer who is on the same page about your divorce.  There are plenty of lawyers who want to amicably settle your divorce, and you should search until you find one.

If you talk to a few lawyers, there are plenty of signs you can watch for that some lawyers are not for you.  If the lawyer tries to reassure you that you will get most of the marital assets with their help, you might feel more confident, but you might also be getting a false sense of hope.  If you want to divide things fairly, you also do not want a lawyer to tell you they will take it all for you.

Some divorce attorneys may try to drag your case out longer so that they can get more funds from you after the retainer has been used.  Rather than hourly fee schedules, consider negotiating a fixed fee arrangement.  That means you will pay for the work that is actually completed.

The right divorce attorney can help you understand the laws that Brazil requires you to follow in order to make your divorce as easy as possible.  Brazil has some specific requirements and procedures that must be properly followed, so it is important to make sure that you are represented by competent legal counsel.
