You will find far too many divorce attorneys in College Park. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter College Park Florida and click Search. You’ll get a very long list of divorce attorneys in and near College Park.
You’ll observe that all of those attorneys look and sound the same. They will all let you know inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click through to the internet sites of these attorneys , that won’t help either. Each of them have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each of them tell you various almost identical qualities about themselves. The problem is that not one of them can prove a single claim they make. You don’t want to hear any of that noise. If they don’t prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in College Park.
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.
It’s also wise to know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the specific performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in College Park are obviously not going to publish testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI attorney who does not have any necessary understanding of the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t let you know 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’ll also observe 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 suggesting, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your College Park divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been focusing on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, as you read this, only you know what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local College Park divorce attorney who shows you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney tells you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it could not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in College Park. No one knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best College Park divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his / her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It’s reasonable to think that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the problems 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 how each attorney positions and promotes their own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to handle your own personal legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their very own business interests?
So look carefully at each attorney. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a bogus 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 this lawyer.
So what’s a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the best family law brand in the world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in College Park? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have one single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re looking for?
You don’t need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you don’t need to go with some non-descript attorney who just blends in with every other divorce attorney in Duval County. You need a lawyer who handles his or her own law practice business creatively because that means s/he will handle your interests the same way.
However, there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best divorce marketing brand in the world. Think about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney many more divorces than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorces are usually better at it than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce attorney who is well-versed in family law and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has a cost-effectiveness factor. It brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their local lawyer competitors mustpay. This means your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many additionally offer fixed fee unbundled services like a case review package, where you will not only have your total fee up-front but also pay only for the legal services your situation really needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial consultations.
However, perhaps the best financial factor for you to take advantage of is that because of the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of the same help in the future? You’ll just say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney 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 may get 2, 3, 6 divorce cases 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.
So take advantage. Make sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney knows that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you want a very good job done in your divorce.
Only a good job will lead to future referrals. You don’t need to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney didn’t have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer people to him or her. You’ll forget his or her name and you’ll lose his or her email address. In 2 or 5 years, you’ll never remember, but you’ll never forget 1-800-DIVORCE.

In a typical family law matter, there will be multiple family law services offered – either as well as divorce or legal separation or as a separate service if the divorce itself has been completed or will not be pursued at the same time.
Here are perhaps the most frequent secondary family law service offerings, though these are not unimportant.
If there are minor children of the marriage, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting must be resolved and be determined by legal court orders.
Child custody and its related issues are always considered by the court to be more important than a divorce itself or any other issues such as property division. Clearly, child custody and visitation can be emotional topics for the parents.
To get a child custody case assessment and a firm grasp of what the probable results of a child custody action will be, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form below.
The topic of child support is also potentially emotional. Often, it is also a matter of economic survival going forward and just plain fairness.
Whether your child support issue is a question of ascertaining the correct or fair amount of child support that should be paid, as determined by the relative incomes of the parties and the percentages of physical custody of both parties or alternativelyif it is a matter of either confirming or adjustment of an existing child support order, your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in College Park has you covered.

Usually in a long term marriage, but additionally in other marriages, depending on circumstances, spousal support can be an important matter. It will be the concern of the court to ensure that the financial outcomes of the parties after the divorce are maintained as much as is feasible the same as the financial standard of living the parties experienced while they were married.
For a free spousal support assessment, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form at the bottom of this page.
Even when spouses cannot agree, a divorce does not have to be a big fight. For many couples, divorce mediation is an excellent and affordable alternative to expensive litigation.
In divorce mediation, you both meet with a trained, neutral mediator to weigh up and finalize the issues in your case. Mediation sessions often occur in a neutral office setting, but you may alternatively be able to go through your mediation online.

Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both spouses agree they want to dissolve their marriage and that no one will fight the case or any of its issues, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In almost all instances, the divorce process for uncontested divorces will be finalized much sooner than in contested divorces.
You could file for divorce thinking the process will be uncontested, but find later 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. These are not suitable in EVERY uncontested divorce.
The main factor in uncontested divorces is to have a good and affordable lawyer on your side from the very beginning just in case your uncontested divorce becomes contested or needs additional family law services.
