There are far too many divorce attorneys in Buena Vista. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Buena Vista Florida and click Search. You’ll see a lengthy list of divorce attorneys in and near Buena Vista.
You’ll observe that all those attorneys look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know within their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click right through to the web sites of those attorneys , that won’t help either. They all have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
They all look and sound the same. They all 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 know 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 an attorney of proven higher quality to protect your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Buena Vista.
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 is not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the little information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce attorneys in Buena Vista are obviously not going to create testimonials for their 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 knowledge about 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 his / her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating does not let you know 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 observe that a number of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but a number of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re suggesting, “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 do not want your Buena Vista divorce lawyer to grab the telephone to you when she’s just been taking care of 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 involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Buena Vista divorce attorney who demonstrates to you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his / 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 might be accurate, but it could not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce attorney in Buena Vista. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best Buena Vista divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his / her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It is reasonable to assume that the way 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 the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So how each attorney positions and promotes his / her own law practice is a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to handle your own 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 bogus 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 this lawyer.
So what is a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? How about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective 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 Buena Vista? How about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to have a single word as his / her brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re trying to find?
So you do not want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you do not want to hire a me-too attorney who simply stands in line with all other divorce attorney in Miami-Dade County. You want a lawyer who handles himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will look after your divorce the same way.
But there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the best 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 many more cases than their competitors.

1-800-DIVORCE also has an affordability factor. It brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their local competitors pay. That means your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is LIKELY to request lower fees.

Most 1-800-DIVORCE attorneys also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
But maybe the foremost financial factor for you to take advantage of is that because of the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of 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 payoff for the lawyer – a free case. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for 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 case acquisition cost 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. Make 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 want a real good job done in your case.
Only a good job will lead to future referrals. And you do not have to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney will know it’s true. Be sure to 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.

If there are minor children of the marriage, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting must be resolved and become determined by legal court orders.

No matter whether your child support topic is a matter of ascertaining the fair dollar figure of child support that should be paid, as determined by the incomes of the parties and the percentages of primary physical care,custody and control of each party or if it is a matter of either confirming or modification of a current child support, your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Buena Vista has you covered.

Usually in a lengthy marriage, but also in other marriages, depending on circumstances, spousal support can be a critical issue.

When divorcing spouses cannot agree, a divorce does not have to be a big fight. For many couples, divorce mediation is an excellent and affordable alternative to expensive litigation.

Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both parties agree they want to dissolve their marriage and that no one will legally contest the divorce or any of its parts, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In almost all instances, the court process for uncontested divorces will be finalized in a much shorter time than for litigated divorces.
You could file for divorce thinking the case will be uncontested, but discover later on that your spouse will. This does not happen frequently, 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. These are not suitable in EVERY uncontested divorce.
The important factor in an uncontested divorce is to have a good and affordable lawyer on your side from the very start just in case your uncontested divorce blows up or perhaps just needs some extra family law services.
