A divorce is a difficult experience which can be exasperated by not having the right solicitor to work with. Picking the right solicitor for you is imperative to making your legal and emotional process as smooth as it can possibly be under the circumstances. The following are some important tips to take into consideration as you make your decision.

Recommendation, Recommendation, Recommendation!
A two-minute television commercial, phone book entry or online advertisement is not the best way to choose your divorce solicitor. Recommendations are an important consideration in finding a right fit. Talk to friends, coworkers, or family members who might have gone through a divorce about their experience with their solicitor and whether they would recommend him or her. The divorce process is emotionally charged and can be a long time-consuming process. You want to be sure you are working with someone you feel comfortable with who will be sympathetic, consider your needs and be patient enough to explain the legal processes to you in terms you will understand. You also want to be sure you have someone who will take into consideration your children, handling interactions with sensitivity and negotiating the best possible outcome with their interest in mind.

Price Consideration
Be sure to ask for a thorough breakdown of charges before you make any commitments. Some solicitors charge a flat fee, most charge per hour, plus expenses. Prepare a list of questions for your potential divorce solicitor and sign an agreement of your mutual financial understanding in advance of proceedings. Don\'t let advertising of low cost or free initial services fool you. Charges can add up pretty quickly and delayed payments might be much higher than comparative offers.

Experience Counts
Be sure your solicitor has experience in cases like your own. Also find out if he or she:
- Is knowledgeable about comparable rulings
- Has adequate courtroom experience, and if so, their courtroom success record
- Has strong interpersonal and negotiation skills to deal aptly with your ex-spouse and his or her respective solicitor
- If necessary, knows other reputable experts in their fields which you might to need to work with, for example, a psychologist, an accountant, and so on. -Ask for references from former clients.

Don\'t be fooled. A solicitor\'s fancy office, designer suit, confident language, or expensive bill, does not reflect the quality of their legal skill.
