Congratulations. You’ve worked hard to inventory your needs. You will be pleasantly surprised to see how accurate your own assessment is before you see an attorney.

You now know the type of representation your case requires. You’ll be able to tell whether a prospective attorney is missing the point.

Before looking for an attorney, however, you should review the possibility of using an alternative method to the courts to resolve your divorce. Please consider mediation, in the next chapter; then, look for your lawyer or mediator using Chapter Six.
