It takes two to get married, but only one to file for divorce. When one person is finished with the marriage, usually their first step is to contact an attorney. Having an attorney at your side can help you navigate one of life’s most stressful moments. A divorce lawyer’s knowledge, experience, and skills can be invaluable to protecting your family, your assets, and your best interests. After completing a bachelor’s degree, law students undertake a three-year degree specializing in family law. Years of internship experience and extensive examinations earn the right to practice, which they renew by completing continuing education. Family law specialists can advise on how judges are likely to rule and help you understand how to best settle each matter. Divorce lawyers are also specialists in the piles of divorce paperwork. Consequently, the demand for effective, reputable, quality divorce lawyers is always high. Divorce lawyers are hired for various reasons. Some couples hire one attorney to represent both parties through mediation. Two attorneys can negotiate a simple, uncontested divorce. In a contested divorce attorneys argue their client’s case in court where a judge ultimately decides on their issues. Consulting an experienced divorce lawyer is always beneficial, no matter which type of divorce one goes through.
Divorce lawyers can start their own firm, join an existing practice as a salaried employee, or buy in as an equity partner. Every business must account for traditional expenses like staffing, equipment, and operating costs. Legal businesses must also consider overhead costs like legal costs, insurance, rent, commercial loans and advertising. Lawyers keep busy schedules and time is money. Firms are typically run using on premise software or software-as-a-service (SaaS) to handle scheduling, case files, document signing, accounting, billing, invoicing and divorce law payments.
