Divorce is a very challenging process and one of the most stressful situations that anyone can be in.  in such a scenario, nobody of both the couple is in a sane frame of mind to take the right decisions and thus it is only fair that you hire a divorce lawyer, who will not provide you with a legal advice but will also listen to you and be your shoulder to cry on.

So, when you are heading for separation, do not waste any time in hiring a divorce  lawyer. Hiring the right divorce lawyer is a pretty tough job with so many lawyers out there. You need to choose an experienced and professional lawyer that is expert in family law.

So, in this article, I will list down the top 5 qualities that you must look for in a divorce lawyer.

Communication skills
It is very important that you find a common ground with your lawyer. it is very important that you grow comfortable with your divorce lawyer as you are going to share a very intimate part of your life with them, which makes you vulnerable. So, only if your attorney understands you, then go ahead with them or else continue your search.

Experience 
Experience is a very important factor when you are looking for a divorce lawyer. You want a lawyer that not only represents but represents you in the best possible way, reducing high stakes. The divorce lawyer that you will hire is going to touch all the important facts of your life like your marriage, kids and finance. So, for the best outcome, make sure that your attorney is knowledgeable and experienced with the maximum success rate in case similar to yours.

Availability 
When you are going through serious crises like divorce, it is important to hire a attorney that is available and picks your calls. If their schedule is already tight and they barely have any time for you and do not respond to your calls, then there is no use of wasting your time and money. It is better to continue your search. 

Resources and staff
If you are choosing a skilled lawyer, sure they must have many more clients and will not be always available if you have any doubt. After all, your attorney is a human, so it cannot be always present for you. If the lawyer has a lot of business, then for sure that they must have a lot of staff and other attorneys working under them, to talk to you in their absence. 

It also represents the reputation of the lawyer to a great extent. So make sure that they have staff and resources, you can talk to.
Composure 

Your attorney should be focused on you and must listen to you. They must be able to maintain their composure, even when the client is freaking out. It represents that the lawyer is confident and can work under pressure. Composure is a must quality for a lawyer, as they have to face a lot of pressure and stress in the court.
