What Traits Should I Look For In A Divorce Attorney?

When looking for a divorce attorney I would first make sure that I am comfortable with the personality and methodology that the attorney wishes to use in your case to make sure it is consistent with your needs. If it is your desire to reach an amicable conclusion on issues related to your divorce, especially child custody issues, you should make sure that the attorney you hire understands this and while defending your rights also moderates his behavior so as to not unnecessarily create conflict.

The time to be aggressive in a negotiation is dependent upon the circumstances as to whether an attorney should take an aggressive posture from the very beginning or only at the time you are going to appear in court for a hearing or final trial. Your attorney should also have a good grasp of financial issues or have access to experts who have the knowledge necessary to evaluate a complicated estate.
