Divorce Lawyers

1. Divorce lawyers only represent clients who have been abused and are seeking a release from their spouse.

The most common type of divorce in America today is the "no-fault" divorce. Clients every day who claim no particular reason for their divorce are represented in the court system. Most commonly claimed is "irreconcilable differences." This means that neither person is claiming an injustice by the other. They're simply choosing to end their marriage contract.

2. Clients who want a divorce have generally decided firmly to get one before they obtain a professional legal advice.

Divorce Attorneys say they don't have to convince clients to continue the proceedings. Clients who have sought legal counsel have usually determined for themselves that divorce is the best course of action. They come to a professional with questions on how to go about obtaining their desired result.

3. All parties in divorce proceedings generally come out ahead in terms of financial gain, including the attorney.

In most settlements the only person gaining financially is the divorce attorney. When assets are divided between a married couple, neither the wife nor the husband gains any significant wealth. In some instances this is not the case. For instance, if an injustice is determined by the judge, or if a prenuptial agreement was signed protecting one of the claimant's assets and property from being divided. Outside of these few situations the husband and wife are the ones losing financially.

4. Divorce lawyers usually charge by the hour and bill monthly for their services in litigating.

Generally they offer free initial consultations. Ask for a detailed explanation of the process involved, time required, and fees charged. Attorneys should expect new clients to have lots of questions. Many professionals require a retainer for their services: a one time fee retaining them for your court date. Ask about any additional fees charged after settlement.

5. It is acceptable to divorce your husband or wife if you can no longer get along with that person.

Matthew 5:32 - But I say unto you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
