You will find way too many divorce attorneys in Oakwood. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Oakwood Ohio and click Search. You’ll get a very long listing of divorce attorneys in and near Oakwood.
You’ll notice that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you in 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.
If you click right through to the internet sites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. All of them have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
All of them look and sound the same. All of them inform you about 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 know any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Oakwood.
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 absolutely nothing to do with the actual performance of the individual attorney. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo informs you that should you hover over the small information icon close to the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Oakwood are obviously not going to publish testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI attorney who does not have any necessary understanding of the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t inform you 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 will also notice that many 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 letting you know, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You never want your Oakwood divorce lawyer to grab the telephone to you when she’s just been focusing on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, as you read this, only you know what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Oakwood divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some type 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 type of self-praise means nothing to you. It could be accurate, but it might not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Oakwood. No-one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Oakwood divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney 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 assume that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their very own businesses will 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 just how each attorney positions and promotes their own law practice is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to take care of your personal legal and economic interests when they do not 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 such a lawyer.
So what is 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 whole world? How about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Oakwood? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to possess 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?
So you don’t need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . Also, you don’t need to hire some non-descript attorney who simply blends in with every other divorce attorney in Montgomery County. Instead, you need a lawyer who handles himself or herself creatively because that means s/he will handle your case in the same manner.
But there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard family law marketing brand on the planet. 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 more cases than their competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorces tend to become better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You want a busy divorce attorney who is experienced in divorce and understands the intricacies of divorce.
1-800-DIVORCE also has an affordability factor. The brand provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower cost of case acquisition than their competitors pay. That means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is MUCH MORE LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many also offer fixed fee unbundled services like a case review legal services offering, where you will not only have your total fee up-front but also pay only for the services your divorce actually needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
But maybe the foremost financial indicator for you to consider is that because of the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who needs the same help in the future? You’ll just be able to say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the gold for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) will be the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for many years to come. S/he badly WANTS that free business.
Your 1-800-DIVORCE referrals are what bring your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer’s cost of case acquisition 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.
So take advantage. Be 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 expect to have a real good job done in your case.
Only a good job will lead to future referrals. And you don’t have to be nasty or mean about that fact. 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 did not 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.

The advice above tells you what to avoid and what to look for in finding the best divorce attorney for you in Oakwood.
Of course, we could have just said to call 1-800-DIVORCE. 1-800-DIVORCE has been qualifying great and most affordable divorce lawyers and connecting them to divorce consumers since June 1991.
1-800-DIVORCE knows what to look for in a top local divorce attorney. But we needed to tell you a little about what 1-800-DIVORCE looks for in qualifying your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney. We did not just throw a dart at a local map.
But right now we should also tell you something the typical family law services that are provided by 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers. Of course, the most typical is divorce. Legal separations are less common.
In a common family law case, there might well be many family law services provided – maybe as well as divorce or legal separation or as a stand-alone service if the divorce itself has been completed or will not be requested currently.
Following are perhaps the most frequent secondary family law service offerings, though these are not unimportant.
If there is one or more minor children of the marriage, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting have to be addressed and be the subject of court orders.
Child custody and its related issues are always regarded by the court to be more significant than a divorce itself or any other issues such as property or debt division. Clearly, child custody and visitation can be stressful topics for the parents.
To get a child custody case assessment and a better impression of what the likely results of a child custody litigation would likely be, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form below.
The topic of child support is also likely to be stressful. Frequently, it is also a matter of economic survival and just plain fairness.
Whether your child support topic is a question of determining the fair dollar figure of child support that should be paid, based upon the incomes of the parents and the percentages of primary physical custody of both parties or if it is a matter of confirming or adjustment of an existing child support order, your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Oakwood has you covered.
To converse with your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney and obtain a free child support strategy session, call 1-800-DIVORCE or complete the web form below.
Often in a long term marriage, but also in other marriages, spousal support can be an important topic. It will be the concern of the judge to require that the relative 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 during the marriage.
For a free spousal support assessment, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form below.
Even when spouses cannot agree, a divorce doesn’t 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 both meet with a professional, un-biased mediator to discuss and resolve the issues in your case. Such sessions often occur in an informal office setting, though you might also be able to do your mediation online.
To find out about the divorce mediation services offered by your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney in Oakwood, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form below.
Uncontested divorces are those in which both parties agree that they want to dissolve their marriage and that neither spouse will legally contest the case or any of its constituent issues, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In almost all cases, the court process for uncontested divorces can be completed much sooner than in litigated divorces.
You may file for divorce believing that the proceeding will be uncontested, but find later on that your spouse will. This doesn’t occur frequently, but it does happen consistently
You will want to inquire of your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer concerning the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. These are not suitable in EVERY uncontested divorce.
The main consideration in an uncontested divorce is to have a good and cost-effective lawyer on your team from the very start just in case your uncontested divorce becomes contested or perhaps just needs some extra family law assistance.
Call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form below.
