According to Paul Amato, a top divorce rate researcher in the US, he believes that between 42% and 45% of marriages in the US will end in divorce.
That’s just statistics, however, likely to happen in the US. That’s why a divorce lawyer has a tough job. It can be emotionally draining at times for them, too.
The law practice of a divorce attorney primarily centers on representing clients who are contemplating dissolving or divorcing their marriages. Depending on the type of case and its complexity, there is a wide variety of tasks that a divorce lawyer may perform such as helping to divide assets, settle spousal and child support issues, and making child custody arrangements.
A divorce lawyer spends a great deal of time communicating with clients to elicit information about the case for motions and other paperwork that he or she has to then draft and file. Also, the attorney must discuss the results of hearings and strategize about the next steps in the case. Because of the emotions involved in divorce cases, communications with clients are often quite prolonged, requiring divorce attorneys to become adept at scheduling and managing client meetings. Such meetings can take place in person or over the telephone.
