The divorce process is one of the most emotionally and financially turbulent experiences a person can go through in life. Youll likely be going through a lot of stress from the process which is why it is imperative you get a knowledgeable and experienced attorney who can lessen the emotional and financial impact of a divorce. The following are some things to consider when youre out shopping around for a divorce attorney.

Knowledge and Experience

Family law in Texas is a complicated area of law; its important to be represented by an attorney that has a deep understanding of the Texas Family Code as well as enough experience in family law to be able to tackle any situation. From the mundane circumstances to the bizarre, no two divorces are alike and youll want someone to be able to handle anything. Skill and knowledge come with experience; you wouldnt expect a heart surgeon to do a superb job on your hip replacement so look for an attorney that practices primarily in family law.

Counties of Practice

While divorces are governed by the Texas Family Code, a couple getting divorced in Harris County may have an entirely different experience than a couple getting divorced in Brazoria County. Different counties have different local rules, procedures and timetables so its important to have an attorney that is knowledgeable about the procedures of each individual county. You dont want your divorce process to be hampered by an attorney that isnt familiar with the local rules. Just because an attorney is the best in Dallas doesnt mean theyre the best in Houston. A lot of success in family law can be obtained through an attorneys strong relationships with other attorneys, judges and mediators. You definitely want a local attorney who has fostered such relationships and is comfortable in the county of your divorce.


Divorce isnt cheap. Your home, your savings and your children are all possibly at stake during a divorce, so while the thought of a retainer in the thousands of dollars may make you shudder, think about losing all of that because you went with a discount attorney. Family lawyers are able to charge what they do because they know what they are doing and their skills translate into getting you what you want during your divorce. On the other hand, just because an attorney charges you a $20, 000.00 retainer doesnt mean they are the best attorney for your case or that you should take out a loan just to get the best attorney. Do what is financially feasible for you but know that while it may seem like a lot, in the long run spending the money on a competent divorce attorney can help to prevent unnecessary headaches or the potential loss of property and/or rights to children.

Education and Training

The Texas Family Code is a constantly evolving creature; the Supreme Court may hand down a ruling on a case that effectively changes the law overnight. Its important that you have an attorney who stays abreast of legislative changes and case law so that they can best represent you. Attorneys are required to take a certain number of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits per year to stay licensed, but the most knowledgeable attorneys are those that take as many CLE credits as possible so that they may be better prepared than the competition. Ask your potential attorney what they do to make sure theyre in the loop regarding legislative updates or advances in the practice of family law.

Testimonials and Online Reviews

You read the online reviews before going to a new restaurant or hair salon right? Shouldnt you do the same for a person who is going to be protecting the your most precious assets? Take a few minutes to search the internet for reviews of an attorney youre thinking about hiring; obviously not everyone will have the same experience with an attorney but if there are many reviews that are all consistently good or bad you should be able to get a general sense of whether an attorney is competent and does good work for clients.
