I have my first meeting with a divorce attorney - what can I expect?

This guide will help you understand what the process will be for your first meeting with a divorce attorney.

Where can I find more information about the attorney I'm planning to hire? You are already on Avvo! Review their rating, their reviews, and their endorsements. Remember, because of attorney-client privilege, many attorneys cannot respond directly to poor review. Review the attorney on their state bar's website. The Florida Bar provides information on whether an attorney has been disciplined in the last 10 years. Most states have a state bar association which provides helpful information. Ask around through other professionals you use. Do you have an attorney who drafted your will? Ask them for a referral to a divorce attorney. Ask your dentist, your tax professional, even your doctor - you will be surprised that the professionals you already trust can refer you to a divorce attorney they trust.
