While a do-it-yourself divorce may seem like an attractive option in terms of reduced cost and straight-forwardness, when it comes to divorce, partnering with an experienced men’s divorce attorney is not critical. For choosing an attorney for your divorce, the primary reasons should be expertise and experience.
While basic divorces have their own set of considerations and requirements, high net worth divorces are exponentially more challenging in terms of financial and other complexities and considerations. Without an understanding of these critical factors and how the process impacts them, you run the risk of losing assets which you should be entitled to, improperly giving up income, or ignoring the tax implications of certain holdings. Making these types of mistakes can have a significantly negative impact on your future financial wellbeing. Additionally, a lawyer can help you avoid delays that result from problems from paperwork or other issues. They help ensure a streamlined process and your attaining the end result you desire.
So what should you be looking for in your men’s divorce attorney?
- Reputation. When considering a potential lawyer, investigate both their track record and reputation in the divorce arena. Ask friends and trusted financial providers for their recommendations, but recognize that this is ultimately your divorce and your decision.
- Focus. Most divorce lawyers gained a reputation for a specialty or area of the law. As a high net worth individual, you want to ensure that challenging niche of divorce. Also, be sure that you are represented by a lawyer whose particular specialty is in line with the goals for your divorce. You also need to consider the type of attorney who is best at moving your case. Are you looking for a ruthless litigator, who believes in "scorch the earth" tactics, or do you prefer an attorney who will first recommend and support alternative strategies like collaborative divorce?
- Personality. Your divorce attorney needs to act as a trusted advisor and advocate. Be sure you choose a lawyer whose personality you can relate and respond to. You want to establish a relationship that fosters open communication.
