A divorce is probably going to be of the most traumatic events you have ever encountered. Selecting the right attorney for your particular situation is one of the most important decisions you will ever make as the outcome will effect you for the rest of your life.
Start by asking friends, relatives and co-workers for recommendations. Almost everyone knows someone that has gone through a divorce. Then check online for reviews on Google or AVVO.
When you meet with an attorney, bring a list of questions regarding your concerns in the divorce case. Having a prepared list of questions assists the attorney in deciding the best way to present your situation to the court. Ask how the attorney will bill you. While some attorneys offer a flat fee, most attorneys charge for all time spent in working on your divorce. This includes time for phone calls, emails, drafting documents, court preparation, travel time and time in court or in mediation. It is usually impossible for any attorney to give you an accurate estimate of total costs for the divorce because there are so many variables. Will your spouse be willing to reach a settlement of all the issues or is your spouse going to contest every issue? These factors will go a long way toward determining your ultimate costs. No attorney will know all the issues at the initial consultation.
Be sure your attorney will return phone calls or emails within a reasonable time and that you will receive copies of all pleadings. Beware of any attorney who guarantees certain results. Any attorney can only promise to use his or her best efforts in representing you. No attorney can change the facts of your situation or the law. You want an attorney that will be up front with you about what to expect.
Mediation is mandatory in South Carolina before the family court will set your case for a trial. In most cases, it is better to agree to settle even if you consider some of the terms unfavorable. If you go to trial, you risk having a judge decide all of the issues in a short amount of time.
