Hiring a Virginia Divorce Lawyer

Posted on Jan 25, 2010 by Hofheimer Family Law

In most Virginia divorce cases, it is necessary to hire an experienced Virginia divorce lawyer. A Virginia divorce lawyer can protect your interests in settling child custody, child support, and marital property matters. Knowing how to select a Virginia divorce attorney, however, can be a challenge.

It’s not only important for the lawyer you choose to have experience with Virginia divorces, but they also must be familiar with the specifics of your case
. If your divorce includes complicated child custody and support issues, financial, commercial, or residential assets, etc., you should choose a Virginia divorce attorney who has successfully handled these types of cases.

It is also important to discuss fees upfront with your Virginia divorce lawyer. Ask about the attorney’s hourly rate and their retainer amount. If a divorce attorney will not discuss fees with you, move on to the next attorney on your list.

Another important aspect in choosing your Virginia divorce lawyer is personality. You’ll be working very closely with your attorney for months, often discussing private matters that are emotionally difficult. The Virginia divorce lawyer you choose should balance legal expertise with compassion, and should always be available to discuss any concerns and questions you have about your case.
