1. Identify A Suitable Divorce Process
Before you start searching for a legal
consultant, you must identify the divorce process
you want to use. You can take the litigation
route and approach a court of law to formalize
your separation with your spouse. Couples who
feel they can thrash out a settlement themselves
can use the collaborative process wherein they
are supported by their respective attorneys
during the discussions. Mediation is another
option where a professional mediator helps them
reach a mutually agreeable settlement. A
mediation process can be conducted with or
without a lawyer. Once you have decided what is
the best approach to be taken in your matter, you
can move ahead accordingly.

2. Ask For Referrals
The best way to find an efficient adviser is to
ask around. In case, someone in your circle of
friends and relatives has gone through a
separation, contact that person to know about the
lawyer he/she had hired. It will be pertinent to
inquire about the kind of process used by the
person. This will help you whether the
professional will be suitable for your purpose or
not. You can also ask counsel you know but who
work in a different practice area about expert
advisers in the domain.

3. Create A Shortlist And Research The Attorneys
Once you have collected the names of a few
lawyers from different sources, it is time to
make a shortlist. Talking to your acquaintances
would have provided you with some idea of the
suitability of each recommended professional.
Identify the ones which you feel will be best
positioned for handling your matter. Include them
in your shortlist and start researching them one
by one. This process is essential for finding the
best divorce attorney for your case. The best
place to find about the shortlisted advisers is
the internet. Most of them would have a website
where you can learn about their educational and
professional background. You can also use the web
to know what clients say about the counsels. You
can also use a search trick to assess their
reputation. For instance, if you are looking for
a consultant in and around Stuart or St. Lucie,
you can use the search query top divorce lawyer
in Port Saint Lucie and see whether any of the
shortlisted candidates appear in the results or
not.

4. Prepare A Set Of Interview Questions
You must now prepare to meet all the attorneys
that you have finalized. Most legal advisers
offer a free initial consultation to prospective
clients. This provides you with a good
opportunity to meet the consultants in person and
assess them. Make a list of questions to ask all
the potential advisers. The first question
naturally should be about the experience of the
professional in handling divorce matters. In
case, your separation involves children or
valuable asset separation, inquire whether the
counsel has experience in child custody and asset
division or not. This is the time when you must
ask about the possible outcome of your case apart
from the expected time duration for settling the
issue. Do not forget to ask about the solicitors
fee and the estimated expenses of settling the
issue.

5. Compare The Fee Structure Of Different
Attorneys
Cost is an important aspect of the entire
separation process. In case alimony, child
support, and asset division are involved, it can
possibly impact your financial situation. The
financial stress can be amplified by attorney fee
and other legal expenses. In order to avoid
losses, you must compare the fee structure of the
finalized advisers. Some of them would be
charging a flat amount for the entire case while
others would be asking for payments at hourly
rates. Assess which format will be the best for
your situation and calculate the cost of hiring a
professional.

6. Make The Final Selection
By now, you are aware of the expertise of each
candidate and the estimated cost of hiring each
one of them. Choose a professional who possesses
significant experience in handling your kind of
situations and fits in your budget. This will
help in identifying the most suitable
professional who can be hired without emptying
your bank accounts.
