How To pick a divorce or family lawyer that is right for your needs

Below are five factors to consider when
choosing an attorney to handle your divorce:

Family & divorce Lawyer listening to clients
  1. Communication & Comfort level – It is critical that you pick a lawyer that you have a high level of comfort with and can speak to you regarding personal matters. Look for someone that you have confidence and with whom you can effectively communicate. Make sure that your attorney listens and asks questions until they fully understand your situation and desires. Your counselor must communicate with you at every critical phase of the divorce.

2.  Experience – Your old life with your spouse is ending. A new life is beginning. It is vital that you chose a lawyer who not only knows the law but also has deep experience negotiating with other attorneys as well as litigating in court. In a word, make sure they have a track record of delivering results.

3.  Aggressiveness – You need to assess what is the best strategy. The old saying that you “attract more bees with honey” is not always true when it comes to arguing a divorce case. However, being overly aggressive at all times often is not the best path to achieving a client’s goals, either. In the        end, you need to discuss this in your initial consultation with a prospective lawyer. The goal should be to find an attorney who knows what will be        most effective in each situation and focuses on achieving your goals.

4.  Goals & Focus – The only way to achieve your desired goals is to have them clearly defined. Then each strategy needs to focus on getting you closer to achieving them. It is wise to retain a lawyer who will listen to you, help you clarify your needs and wants. You then want an attorney who can develop a strategy for your case fused and the achievement of those goals.

5.  Reputation – You want to choose an attorney that is well respected by their peers and has an excellent track record. Martindale- Hubble is the      oldest and most respected attorney rating service in the nation that bases its rating, having other lawyers review their peers. It is also wise to ask            for testimonials and look at reviews.

The seven grounds for divorce in New York State are irretrievable breakdown in relationship (for at least six months), cruel and inhuman treatment, abandonment, imprisonment, adultery, divorce after a legal separation agreement, and divorce after a judgment of separation.

Divorce Through Mediation

Attorney Paige provides divorce mediation services via his Rockland Family and Divorce Mediation Center. It is a process where the individuals and set aside their emotions to address contested marital issues to avoid the cost and impact of a court battle. It is usually faster easier, less stressful, and most of all often has a less negative effect on children.

Additionally, Attorney Paige, review divorce mediation agreements for clients. If you are in the process of divorce mediation, it is crucial to have an experienced divorce attorney to review your contract.

Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce is the process where both spouses agree to work through the issues of divorce amicably. Each has a lawyer of their choice representing them. All four people meet and work through the divorce process in a manner that works for both parties. It is similar to divorce mediation but rather than one mediator each has an attorney to help protect their interests.

High Net Worth Divorce

High net worth divorce occurs when one or both parties have a large number of assets or a high income. The complexities of separating these marital assets take a unique set of skills and support experts. Mark S Paige is skilled in high net worth divorces and has strategic alliances with highly talented accountants, financial services, experts in overseas holdings, assets, and more…

Divorce With A Business

When a business is involved in a divorce, it can be messy and quite complicated. New York’s rules on equitable distribution of assets state, if the company is considered marital property, it must be addressed in the divorce unless agreed to outside of court.

 Collaborative Law… Divorce Mediation… Traditional Litigated Divorce –
Which Is Best for Me And My Family?

Collaborative law and mediated divorce are quicker, less expensive, and usually have fewer effects on individuals and their children. Both enable the divorcing couple to make the critical decisions together that affect their family rather than leaving it to a judge to decide. However, both parties must be able to communicate and negotiate maturely. The mediator or the attorneys are there to help you step back and regroup during stressful moments, but both processes depend upon the parties working together. It has been said that these alternative divorce processes are for individuals who love their children more than they are angry with each other. Alternative methods do not work well when the couple cannot sit and communicate without arguing.
