You will find far too many divorce attorneys in Cedar Grove. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Cedar Grove Virginia and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy list of divorce attorneys in and near Cedar Grove.
You’ll observe that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all inform you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to the internet sites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. Each of them have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each of them let you know about various almost identical qualities about themselves. The problem is that not one of them can prove a single claim they make. You do not want to hear any of that noise. If they do not prove it, it indicates nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Cedar Grove.
To be clear, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a lawyer having an Avvo account, a Yelp Account, a LegalZoom account or a Google My Business page. What’s wrong is when they ONLY have those accounts and do not position themselves professionally to stand out from the lawyer-crowd.
You should also remember that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the specific performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Cedar Grove are obviously not going to write testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI attorney who doesn’t have necessary knowledge about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not inform you how good or affordable any attorney actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce attorney providing your divorce is uncontested. Cheap divorce attorneys tend to be good divorce attorneys because they tend to handle a lot of divorce and other family law matters. So you can certainly tell your friends that you found an affordable divorce attorney through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
Additionally you will observe that several divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You might have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but a number of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re suggesting, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Cedar Grove divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been working on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So at this time, as you read this, only you understand what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Cedar Grove divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney tells you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it might not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Cedar Grove. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Cedar Grove divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his / her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It’s reasonable to think that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their very own businesses will be the way s/he handles the issues and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So how each attorney positions and promotes their own law practice will be a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to take care of your own personal legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a fake rating, leave them alone. If they represent themselves only on a cookie-cutter website and only with self-praise, leave them alone. There’s no dynamic or creative insight or spark in such a lawyer.
So what’s a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective family law brand in the whole world? What about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Cedar Grove? What about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
So you don’t need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you don’t need to go with a me-too attorney who simply blends in with every other divorce attorney in City of Newport News. You need a lawyer who represents himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will handle your interests the same way.
But there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best family law marketing brand in the world. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney more divorces than their competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorce cases tend to become better at it than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce attorney who is well-versed in family law and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost factor. It brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their local competitors pay. This means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.
Many also have fixed fee unbundled service packages such as a document review legal services offering, where you will not only have your complete cost up-front but also pay only for the services your situation actually needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
But perhaps the best financial factor for you to consider is that because of the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of the same help in the future? You’ll say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a free case. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for years to come. S/he WANTS that free business.
Your 1-800-DIVORCE referrals are what bring your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer’s case acquisition cost way down. They may get 2, 3, 6 divorces for the cost of one (yours). And that’s why they signed up. And you know that, and they know that, and they hope you know that.
So use that knowledge to your advantage. Be sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney knows that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you expect to have a very good job done in your divorce.
Only a good job will bring those free referrals. You don’t have to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney did not have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer people to him or her. You’ll forget his or her name and you’ll lose his or her email address. In 2 or 5 years, you’ll never remember, but you’ll never forget 1-800-DIVORCE.

In a typical family law matter, there will be many family law services provided – maybe as well as divorce or legal separation or as a separate service if the divorce itself has been completed or will not be requested currently.
Here are perhaps the most frequent secondary family law service offerings, though these are not unimportant.
If there are minor children of the marriage, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting have to be addressed and resolved and become the subject of court orders.
Child custody and its related issues are always considered by the court to be more important than a divorce itself or other connected topics such as property division. Obviously, child custody and visitation can be emotional issues for the parties.
To get a child custody case assessment and a firm grasp of what the probable resolution of a child custody and parenting action would likely be, call 1-800-DIVORCE or complete the web form below.
The issue of child support is also likely to be stressful. Frequently, it is also a matter of economic survival as well as fairness.
No matter whether your child support topic is a question of determining the correct or fair amount of child support to be paid, based upon the relative incomes of the parents and the percentages of primary physical care,custody and control of each parent or if it is a matter of either enforcement or adjustment of a current child support, your near-me 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Cedar Grove has you covered.

Often in a long term marriage, but also in shorter marriages, spousal support can be a critical matter. It will be the job of the judge to ensure that the financial positions of the parties after the divorce is final are maintained as much as is possible the same as the standard of living the parties experienced during the marriage.
For a free spousal support assessment, call 1-800-DIVORCE or complete the web form at the bottom of this page.
When spouses disagree, a divorce does not have to be a big fight. For many divorcing spouses, divorce mediation is an excellent and affordable option to expensive litigation.
In mediation, both of you meet with a trained, un-biased mediator to weigh up and finalize the issues in your case. Such sessions frequently occur in an informal office situation, but you may alternatively be able to do your mediation online.
In order to learn about the divorce mediation services offered by your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Cedar Grove, call 1-800-DIVORCE or complete the web form at the bottom of this page.
Uncontested divorces are those in which both spouses agree that they want to dissolve their marriage and that neither spouse will fight the case or any of its issues, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In almost all cases, the court process for uncontested can be finalized much sooner than for fought divorces.
You may sue for divorce thinking that the proceeding should be uncontested, but discover later that your spouse will. This does not occur often, but it does happen consistently
You will want to ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer concerning the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. These are not suitable in EVERY uncontested divorce.
The important factor in uncontested divorces is to have a good and cost-effective lawyer on your side from the beginning in case your uncontested divorce blows up or needs extra family law assistance.
