You will find far too many divorce attorneys in Brandon. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Brandon South Carolina and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy listing of divorce attorneys in and near Brandon.
You’ll notice that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you in their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click through to web sites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all 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 know any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to look after your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Brandon.
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 know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the actual performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the little information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Brandon are obviously not going to create testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI attorney who has no necessary knowledge about the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange 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.
You will also notice that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but many of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re letting you know, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Brandon divorce lawyer to grab the phone to you when she’s just been taking care of a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So at this time, as you read this, only you understand what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Brandon divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney informs you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it could not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Brandon. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Brandon divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his or her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It is reasonable to think that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses will be the way s/he handles the problems and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So just how each attorney positions and promotes their own law practice is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to handle your 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 phony 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 this lawyer.
So what is a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce attorney who has seized the very best family law brand in the world? What about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Brandon? What about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to have a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re looking for?
You do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you do not need to hire some non-descript attorney who simply blends in with every other divorce attorney in Greenville County. You need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business boldly because that means s/he will handle your interests in the same manner.

If there is one or more minor children, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting have to be addressed and become the subject of court orders.

Often in a long term marriage, but additionally in shorter marriages, spousal support can be a critical issue.

Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both parties agree that they want to dissolve their marriage and that no one will legally contest the divorce or any of its constituent issues, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In most cases, the divorce process for uncontested divorces will be completed in a much shorter time than for fought divorces.
You could sue for divorce believing that the proceeding should be uncontested, but find later that your spouse has decided to contest. This does not happen frequently, but it happens.
You should inquire of your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer about the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. Bear in mind that these are not suitable in ALL uncontested divorces.
The main factor in uncontested divorces is to have a good and cost-effective lawyer on your side from the very start just in case your uncontested divorce blows up or perhaps just requires extra family law services.
