What to Ask a Divorce Lawyer Before Hiring One?

Considering which divorce lawyer to hire in Johnson County, KS can be a difficult decision. After all, the legal advice  provided will  impact you for the rest of your life. We have compiled a list of questions to ask a divorce lawyer before you make a hiring decision.

Something my clients frequently share with me is how difficult it can be to select a divorce lawyer. As a divorce attorney serving Johnson County, Kansas, I know it can be challenging to find someone who can account for your individual and unique divorce needs whom you also trust to represent your needs. Here are some things to keep in mind when selecting a divorce attorney.

1.     How and how often will we communicate?

Offering both email, Zoom  and phone communication to our clients, we strive to update weekly or monthly, depending on the pace  at which the case is moving. During a complex, active case, communication is more frequent, as needed. Our staff believes you should never be at a loss as to the progress of your case. We invite our clients to reach out any time they have questions. 

Some clients prefer to be informed of emerging details, while others are fine to be kept in the loop on only larger things. The  Hill Law Firm, PC. can accommodate either preference.

2.     Who will be handling my case?

When meeting with me, Elizabeth Hill, we will discuss which staff at my office will assist with the case, but you can have confidence that I will handle your case from start to finish.

3.     Do you practice collaborative divorce?

Yes, The Hill Law Firm, P.C. practices Collaborative Divorce,  Collaborative Mediation and  Traditional Mediation.  A traditional divorce is often adversarial, overwhelming and confusing. We guide our clients through the Collaborative Process because we believe by addressing the issues unique to their case, we can create a lasting divorce settlement without court intervention.

4.     How does collaborative divorce focus on my family and children?

Throughout the entire process, parents are able to  work together to decide what is best for their family’s needs, including how to parent their children going forward. This gives children the ability to see their parents working together without stress or fighting, weighing them down.  The creation of the Joint Parenting Plan is primarily done with the support of your divorce coach.
