There are so many divorce attorneys in Bay Pines. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Bay Pines South Carolina and click Search. You’ll get a very long list of divorce attorneys in and near Bay Pines.
You’ll realize that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all tell you within their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click right through to the web sites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all tell you various almost identical qualities about themselves. The problem is that not one of them can prove a single claim they make. You never want to listen to any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, it indicates nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Bay Pines.
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 be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the particular performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the little information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Bay Pines are obviously not going to publish testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI lawyer who does not have any necessary understanding of the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not tell you how good or affordable any lawyer actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce lawyer 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 lawyer through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
You can also realize that many of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You might 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 telling you, “Hey, we do a|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You never want your Bay Pines divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been taking care of a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So today, as you read this, only you understand what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Bay Pines divorce lawyer who shows you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer informs you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it might not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in Bay Pines. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Bay Pines divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer handles his or her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It’s reasonable to believe that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the difficulties and challenges in your case.
People generally bring exactly the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So just how each lawyer 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 lawyer to handle your own personal legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. 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 is no dynamic or creative insight or spark in such a lawyer.
So what is an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce lawyer who has seized the best family law brand in the world? What about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Bay Pines? What about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to possess one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
You do not want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you do not want to go with a non-descript lawyer who simply blends in with all other divorce lawyer in Beaufort County. Instead, you want a lawyer who represents himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will look after your interests the same way.
But there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the premier divorce marketing brand on the planet. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer more divorces than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorce cases tend to become better at handling divorces than their local competitors.

1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost-effectiveness component. It brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their lawyer competitors pay. That means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to charge lower fees.

Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial consultations.
But perhaps the foremost economic indicator for you to take advantage of is that due to the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) will be the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for many 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 will 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.

Here are perhaps the most frequent secondary family law services, which is not to say that they are any less important.
If there are minor children, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting have to be addressed and resolved and become the subject of court orders.

Usually in a long term marriage, but also in other marriages, spousal support can be a critical topic.

Even when divorcing spouses disagree, a divorce does not have to be a big fight. For many couples, divorce mediation is an excellent and affordable alternative to battling it out in court.
In divorce mediation, you and your spouse meet with a professional, un-biased mediator to weigh up and finalize the areas of disagreement in your case. Mediation sessions often take place in a neutral office setting, though you may also be able to do your mediation online.

Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both parties agree that they want a divorce and that neither spouse will legally contest the case or any of its issues.
In most instances, the court process for uncontested divorces can be finalized much sooner than in litigated divorces.
You could file for divorce thinking that the proceeding will be uncontested, but find later on that your spouse will. This does not occur often, but it does happen.
You will want to ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer about the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. Bear in mind that these are not appropriate in EVERY uncontested divorce.
The main factor in an uncontested divorce is to have a good and cost-effective lawyer on your side from the very beginning in case your uncontested divorce becomes contested or perhaps just needs extra family law services.
