What to Do When Looking for an Affordable Divorce Lawyer

No matter what the reason for a divorce, the hurt and pain felt by all the people involved, is at so many levels that the whole situation becomes irredeemably complicated.

No matter what the reason for a divorce, the hurt and pain felt by all the people involved, is at so many levels that the whole situation becomes irredeemably complicated. And if there are children involved, then the situation only worsens. And when the dust finally settles, what stands out, besides the pain, is the amount of time and money that has gone into the whole process.

No matter which side you’re on, divorce proceedings cost money and unfortunately, the pain and suffering which goes with the procedure, will seldom let you get a handle on your finances. Typical divorce proceedings involve children (custody, access and maintenance), alimony (monthly, lump sum or other) and asset division. And most importantly, do not forget that you still have to pay your lawyer too. Most firms will offer you their first consultation free of charge and this is when you should get all of your questions answered. Your primary concern should of course be how the entire procedure will play out for you financially. And of course, if you happen to end up working with a lawyer who lacks the experience to deal with the kind of situation that you’re in, then you not only stand the chance of losing out more than you should, but still having to pay the requisite fee.

When looking for an affordable divorce lawyer in Singapore, it helps for you to look up the internet to understand the statutory procedures involved. This is not to say that you can’t trust a lawyer and that they may be taking advantage of your situation by charging for invisible fees. In fact, knowing what is involved and the amount of money involved, helps you stay focused on the resolution. For instance, if you did not know any better, you would have probably called off charges levied for the Commissioner for Oaths Fee as bogus. But if you already knew, then you would be able to focus on the core issues at hand.

Your best bet in order to find the best and affordable lawyer in Singapore would be to look up law firms on the internet. You can draw up a list of the top 10 family firms based on various criterion — fees, successful closure of cases, but most importantly, carries a reputation of being discreet as well as competent.
