Your selection of a NH divorce lawyer could have a significant impact on your life for years to come.
Alimony, the division of marital assets, child custody, child visitation, and your co-parenting relationship
with your former spouse might
all be influenced by your selection of counsel. This is one area of
law where the court has many things to consider, and wide latitude to determine the outcome. With so
much at stake, your selection of a NH divorce lawyer should be deliberate, thoughtful and reasoned.
In a small state like NH finding attorneys who only practice one area of law can be difficult.
We therefore recommend that anyone seeking to hire a NH divorce lawyer consider finding
someone belonging to professional associations beyond the Bar, an organization like the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers
In some cases NH divorce lawyers will offer a free consultation. If your case is complicated,
or has a high dollar value, perhaps talking to two or three divorce lawyers would help in
your choice. Feel free to ask questions. If there are children involved, your selection
could have an impact on their lives for years also.
Keep in mind that fees charged by divorce lawyers are often negotiable. Your attorney
runs a business - it just happens to be a law office. Whatever their fee quote, feel free to make
a counter offer. If done tactfully, NH Lawyers rarely object. Understand though,
the cheapest lawyer isn't always the best for you.
