When dealing with the difficulties of the divorce process, it’s important to follow the legal process of your country since divorce laws may differ from one country to another. It’s a requirement to dissolve a marriage using the country’s set laws of divorce to avoid complications resulting from divorce that doesn’t follow the law. Division of property is quite troublesome during the divorce process as one person may be selfish hence the legal process of divorce seeks to rule out on how the property will be divided.
Child or children custody is another source of a headache as the parents in some instances will fight to retain custody of the children/child while in other instances the parents will be running away from the child responsibilities and dissolving the marriage through a legal process addresses this issue. More issues concerning children affected by the divorce include child visitation and parenting time for the parent who is not awarded custody of the child, child support which is usually spelt out for the parent who is not awarded custody of the child. In most cases, it’s recommended for a couple using different attorneys rather than using one to represent both sides especially if the couple has conflicting concerns on the divorce since the attorney might not be able to represent two conflicting sides equally. A couple using the same attorney might work out on conditions such as when they are sure that they will be able to agree on minor conflicting issues, if the need for attorney is just drawing up necessary paperwork, or if the couple agree on major issues in the divorce. During the process of divorce since it doesn’t happen instantly, an issue might come up that wasn’t there at the beginning, which the couple disagrees on causing the lawyer to transfer one client to another attorney. Deciding on the divorce method you would like to approach your divorce with is crucial as it will guide you in the choice of the appropriate lawyer to hire since an attorney might be good at mediation but suck at collaborative divorce. Though you might want your divorce to be solved by mediation method your partner might be in for litigation and hence you can consider making the choice of your attorney based on your partner’s choice to ensure your attorney can handle your partner’s. Before you sign on with an attorney, first ask all the important questions especially on financial matters such as the attorney’s method of payment that is whether he wants a retainer, an hourly charge, billing monthly, and what the attorney’s rates are so that you don’t end up using all your money blindly or end up being financially disappointed.
