First, ask them about their experience with family law. How long have they been practicing and do they practice exclusively family law? Knowing the answers to these questions gives you an understanding of their level of competency in the field. Lawyers with more experience will be better equipped to handle any hurdles that may arise during the legal process.

Next, ask about their strategy. Does your family law attorney want to settle outside of court, or do they wish to present their case in front of a judge? Asking about their strategy can allow you to determine whether they are fighting with their best interests in mind or yours.

Before hiring, be sure to ask about their legal fees. Understanding what they will demand in terms of compensation can help you decide if they are right for your budget.
