3 Divorce Lawyers to Dump and 3 to Hire Instead


If you are going through a divorce, you already have enough stress and drama in your life.  Even if you and your spouse started the divorce process determined to keep things amicable, the long-unspoken resentments are starting to bubble to the surface.  As much as it may have bugged you that your spouse undermined all your parenting decisions, being the only adult in the house is much harder, because now you are responsible for washing every dish, applying every Band-Aid, and attending every soccer practice.  The last thing you need is a divorce lawyer whose lack of professionalism only adds to your stress.  Divorce is never truly painless, but it is several orders of magnitude easier if you hire the right Boca Raton divorce lawyer.

Dump Flaky Flavia and Hire Responsive Renata

Your communications with Flaky Flavia seem to go in one ear and out the other.  You must often pull up email exchanges on your phone and show them to her during in-person meetings to prove that you, in fact, sent her a document or updated her about recent developments.  Days go by before she responds to your emails or phone calls.  Instead, you should hire Responsive Renata, who responds to your communications within one business day, if only to acknowledge receipt of your email and to promise to give a more detailed response later.  She rereads your email exchanges before meeting with you in person to make sure that she has the facts straight.

Dump Sentimental Sadie and Hire Practical Priscilla

Sentimental Sadie has unrealistic expectations about how Instagrammably sweet your divorce will be.  Just because she and her ex-husband are BFFs, she assumes that everyone’s divorce will have a happy ending.  Her advice seems to steer you toward reconciling with your spouse, or else toward making ad hoc parenting decisions with your ex, which might work for couples who are still married, but which are disastrous for divorced co-parents.  Instead, you should hire Practical Priscilla.  She knows that the best way to have a harmonious co-parenting relationship with your ex-spouse is to draft a meticulously detailed parenting plan, even though hashing out all the parenting plan details in mediation is no fun.

Dump Shady Shawn and Hire Straightforward Steve

Shady Shawn gets a kick out of bending the rules.  The gleam in his eye is unmistakable when you tell him that your brother lives nearby; you can tell that he is thinking that you can easily stop your vacation home from being marital property by titling it in your brother’s name instead of yours.  Shady Shawn thinks you should tell the court that your ex is in a supportive relationship because she moved back in with her parents; he thinks he can get you out of paying alimony by arguing that there is no appreciable difference between a sugar daddy and an actual dad.  Instead of him, you should hire Straightforward Steve, who interprets the laws the way that lawmakers assume that a reasonable person will interpret them, and he chooses the simplest ways to comply with the law, instead of looking for loopholes.
