A phone call is the first step to start the process and to help resolve issues and calm fears about what may lie ahead. When contacting a divorce attorney, have a list of questions ready so you know that you will be comfortable with working with him or her and the firm. Consider asking the following questions:
- What is your philosophy on divorce and divorce settlements?
- How many divorce cases has your firm handled and of those, how many have you been personally responsible for?
- What is your experience with specialized divorce cases? (Custody, division of property or highly contested)
- How often will we meet to discuss the divorce procedures and process?
- Will anyone else in your firm be working on my case? If so, how?

Couples will soon have the option to work alongside a single attorney to help them reach a divorce agreement and prepare all relevant legal documents, saving considerable time and legal costs.
