5 hacks – how to pick the right divorce lawer for yourself in NY & NJ

Are you having marriage problems in NY or NJ? Are you worried about finding the RIGHT divorce lawyer?  The ONE? 

Are you worried about losing your kids and paying so much in child support that you will go bankrupt? 

Or maybe you are worried you will get nothing if you decide to leave and stay even if you are miserable because you afraid the divorce will destroy your life? 

My name is Marina Shepelsky and I am a NY and NJ divorce lawyer since 2003.  I have great experience in courts in the areas of child support, custody and visitation, property division in complex divorces, maintenance, alimony, parental rights, separation agreements, post-nuptial and prenuptial agreements. I also work with uncontested divorces and encourage people to settle their matrimonial disputes peacefully, whenever possible.

I have 5 tips for YOU on how to find the right divorce lawyer for you!

1. Look for the laywer’s online videos. Look for online reviews. Look at their website. The client reviews don’t all have to be 5 stars, but look for someone that MAJORiTY of their clients like and rave about.

2. Look for someone with the same mindset as you. If you want to settle peacefully and your lawyer wants to make your life into a 10-year litigation, this attorney may not be the right fit for you. If you are a fighter, you need a lawyer with the most aggressive strategy. If your spouse is very aggressive, you need a bulldog of a defense lawyer.

3. Meet and interview more than one attorney to find the one who feels right for you. It’s ok to speak to 2 or even 5. Pick the ONE.

4. Be prepared to invest financially in your divorce. It’s. It going to be cheap to dinghy for everything that’s fairly yours. This is one of the more important financial decisions of your life. Put some money aside for this.

5. Do not turn to alcohol or drugs (I know you thought about it, but it’s not with it. Instead, do your research and pick a lawyer who will work for YOU. Do this smart, with a cold head.
