Cheap Divorce Lawyer

If you've ever heard from a friend or family member, "just get a cheap divorce lawyer" when facing a divorce, keep reading because you're about to discover why no divorce lawyer is cheap.

We'll start by saying divorce lawyers typically deal with family law.

And they differ from other attorneys because they don't work on a contingency basis - meaning they get their money when you get yours.

And here's why they don't work on a contingency basis.

They almost never win!

It's one of the reasons why you need to come up with a "retainer" (read: pay in advance) as soon as you engage them for your case.

So if you ever wondered why you never see divorce lawyers advertise on TV with happy, satisfied clients touting the money they saved them or how they really nailed the Ex to the wall – now you know.

What You Want vs. What A Lawyer Wants

Because divorce is such an ugly, emotional, and costly process, you have one goal - get it over and done with as fast and as cheaply as possible.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know the more money you have after the divorce the faster you can get back on your feet financially and emotionally - and on with your new life.

Now, let's stop for a second and take a look at your lawyer's primary objective.

What they want is to have your divorce take as long as possible.

Read that sentence again because in case you didn't notice - they have the complete opposite goal you do when it comes to your divorce.

Okay, now why would they want a completely different outcome than you, their client?

Glad you asked. :)

You Can Predict The Outcome Of Your Divorce 75% Of The Time

In almost every state the statutes regarding Child Support, division of assets, and custody are the same 90+% of the time. The reality of this is you could accurately predict the outcome 75% of the time.

Now I didn't say you'd "like" the outcome, just that you could predict it.

So, if you could predict the result that accurately, regardless of the outcome, why in the world would you use a lawyer?

Well, it's because we've all been sold on the idea thanks to the media and TV that we have to use a lawyer since the laws is just too difficult and complex for us non-lawyers to understand.

And since we buy into the "we must use an attorney," the logical course of action is to find a "cheap divorce lawyer."

Your Ignorance = Their Bliss

And it's right here the legal wheels come off your truck.

Your lawyer, knowing you've been "sold" on using an attorney AND with little idea of how "the system" works, uses this lack of knowledge to their advantage.

Why tell you your divorce could be over in 2 months at a cost of $1000 - $2000 when it can drag out for 3-6 months at a cost to you of $5000 – 10,000 or more?

How can you expect them to pay their mortgage, enjoy the lake home, the Mexico vacations, and get 3 kids through college if they only "make" $1000-2000 on a divorce?

Sarcasm aside, ignorance is not bliss when it comes to divorce.

So knowing a better (and cheaper) settlement is yours for the taking if you could only lower your "ignorance" level on how the system works, what can you do?
