Interested in getting a divorce? The first step is to select a qualified
lawyer to represent you throughout the duration of your case. With so
many New York divorce attorneys to choose from, this can be a task in
itself. So let’s assume that both you and your spouse have found
attorneys and have begun the negotiation process. During the process,
you notice that your spouse’s attorney doesn’t seem to know
what he’s doing. You may begin to wonder, is this good for me? Does
my soon-to-be ex-spouse’s attorney’s incompetence mean that
I will fare better in negotiations? Contrary to popular belief, the answer is no.
It works best for each party in a
divorce action to have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. Good attorneys
know how to determine the issues that are important and do not waste time
on inconsequential matters. They understand the terminology, the law,
and the standard issues which have to be addressed in a divorce case.
In a complex legal field such as divorce and
family law, it is extremely important for an attorney to understand all of the legal
nuances involved in a case in order to properly address them.
An inexperienced attorney makes the process difficult. They can drag out
the divorce process because they don't know what they are doing, and
often end up getting discharged by their client. When a new attorney is
hired to continue the case, the new attorney has to take the time to review
the discharged attorney's work, and the new attorney may start making
new demands. This can significantly lengthen the process and increase
costs. Ultimately, you may find that your legal costs will go up as the
quality of your spouse's lawyer goes down.
