A lot of people have problems with their divorce lawyer. Sometimes, the problem is that you are not happy with the divorce process, and there really is not much that any lawyer can do to change that. Other times, though, the problem is not the divorce process, but the divorce lawyer. If you are not happy with your divorce lawyer, what do you do?
The first thing you need to recognize is that you have options. You married your spouse. You did not marry your divorce lawyer. If you are not happy with your divorce lawyer, you can always fire that lawyer and hire a new one. The bigger question, though, is whether you should fire your lawyer.
Starting all over with a new lawyer takes time and costs money. It could complicate your divorce even more. Or, changing lawyers could be the best decision you ever made. The hard part is knowing when to hang on to the lawyer you have, and when to let go.
In this video, I take you through a simple 3-step process you can use to help you decide how to decide whether you and your divorce lawyer can get back on the same page, or whether you would be better off finding a new lawyer to represent you.
