There are way too many divorce lawyers in Trotwood. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Trotwood Ohio and click Search. You’ll see an extended listing of divorce lawyers in and near Trotwood.
You’ll notice that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click to the web sites of those lawyers , 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 do not want to hear any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You want a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Trotwood.
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 particular performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Trotwood are obviously not going to create testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various 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 good testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about his or her 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 lawyers tend to be good divorce lawyers 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 notice that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You could 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|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Trotwood divorce lawyer to pick up the phone 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 at this time, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Trotwood divorce attorney who shows you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney tells you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it could not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Trotwood. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You need to find the best Trotwood divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate 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 is reasonable to believe that just how 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 just how each attorney positions and promotes his or her own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to take care of 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 phony rating, leave them alone. If they represent themselves only on a cookie-cutter website and only with self-praise, leave them alone. There’s no dynamic or creative insight or spark in such a lawyer.
So what’s an 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 Trotwood? How about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to possess a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re searching for?
You do not want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you do not want to hire some me-too attorney who simply stands in line with every other divorce attorney in Montgomery County. You want a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will handle your interests the same way.

So now we should also tell you something the usual family law services that are offered by 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers. Of course, the most typical is divorce. Legal separations are less typical.
In a typical family law case, there will be multiple family law services offered – maybe as well as divorce or legal separation or as a separate service offering if the divorce itself has been completed or will not be requested currently.
Here are perhaps the most common secondary family law services, which is not to say that they are any less important.
If there are minor children of the marriage, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting must be addressed and resolved and be the subject of court orders.
Child custody is always regarded by the court to be more significant than a divorce itself or other connected topics such as property or debt division. Clearly, child custody can be emotional topics for the parties.
To get a child custody case assessment and a better grasp of what the probable resolution of a child custody litigation would likely be, call 1-800-DIVORCE or complete the web form below.
The issue of child support is also potentially emotional. Frequently, it is also a matter of economic survival going forward and justice.
Whether your child support topic is a matter of determining the correct amount of child support to be paid, based upon the incomes of the parties and the percentages of physical custody of each parent or if it is a matter of either confirming or adjustment of an existing child support, your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Trotwood has you covered.

Often in a lengthy marriage, but also in other marriages, depending on circumstances, spousal support can be an important topic. It will be the concern of the court to make sure that the economic positions of the parties after the divorce are maintained as much as is possible identical to the economic standard of living the parties enjoyed during the marriage.
For a free spousal support assessment, call 1-800-DIVORCE or complete the web form below.
Even when spouses disagree, a divorce does not have to be a big fight. For many divorcing spouses, divorce mediation is an excellent and affordable alternative to expensive litigation.
In mediation, you both confer with a trained, un-biased mediator to discuss and finalize the areas of disagreement in your divorce. Mediation sessions often take place in an informal office setting, though you may alternatively be able to go through your mediation online.
To find out about the divorce mediation services offered by your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Trotwood, call 1-800-DIVORCE or complete the web form below.
Uncontested divorces are those in which both spouses agree that they want to dissolve their marriage and that neither spouse will legally contest the divorce or any of its constituent parts, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In almost all cases, the divorce process for uncontested divorces can be finalized much sooner than for contested divorces.
You might sue for divorce believing that the case should be uncontested, but find later on that your spouse has decided to contest. This does not happen often, but it happens.
You will want to inquire of your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer concerning the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. Bear in mind that these are not suitable in ALL uncontested divorces.
The main factor in an uncontested divorce is to have an experienced and affordable lawyer on your side from the very beginning just in case your uncontested divorce becomes contested or perhaps just needs some additional family law services.
