Your first meeting with a divorce lawyer is an important step. It is during this meeting that you may be taking the first concrete legal steps toward ending your marriage. You may have a lot of questions about your Seattle divorce and you deserve answers to all of your questions. However, some clients aren’t sure what to ask.

Three Things You Don’t Want to Forget to Ask

There are many things that you likely want to ask. Here are a few of the questions that you don’t want to forget:

  • Explain your experience with Washington State divorce law. Is your practice solely focused on family law or do you also represent clients in other kinds of cases?
  • How will you keep me in the loop during the process? How will we communicate? Will I know what’s going on?
  • What happens if I agree to mediation and the mediation fails? Would you be able and willing to bring my Seattle divorce case to court?

Of course, you should also ask any other questions that you have and expect answers.
