How Do I Find a Divorce Lawyer?

Finding a good divorce solicitor to work with you during your divorce proceedings can make a vast difference to the outcome of your settlement. If you’re looking for a divorce lawyer, read on for some helpful advice.

What to consider when looking for a divorce lawyer

Divorces are emotionally challenging times. Having someone with the necessary experience and knowledge can make the process run much more smoothly, leading to a more favourable outcome. Below, we’ve outlined some of the most important things to consider when choosing a divorce lawyer.

Look for recommended family lawyers

Word of mouth is a good way to find a solicitor you can trust. If others you know and trust have recommended someone to you, then this could be a good place to start. You can also find a list of solicitors near you on the Law Society website, or in The Legal 500 Directory. These show solicitors’ ratings so you can make an informed decision.

Another helpful tip for you to find the right divorce solicitor is by making sure to read reviews of their services, this gives you real-life examples of their services and if clients achieved the results they were looking for. At Austin Kemp, we pride ourselves on providing a service that our clients recommend. We provide client success stories and client testimonials on our site so you can get an early understanding of our divorce and family law services. 

Choose experts in divorce and family law

Choosing a divorce firm that has expertise in the field will increase your chances of getting the result you want, and will give you more peace of mind throughout the case. Divorce solicitors are able to discuss your expectations and inform you of potential options to try to result in what you are looking for. They have the expertise to inform you about the most likely divorce outcomes and how to ensure you are given your rights.

This second point is essential; divorces are very stressful, so knowing you have experts looking after your case will be beneficial to you and those around you. They can take the pressure off during the process, taking charge of certain areas and helping guide you along the way.
