Can I Change Attorneys During Divorce?
If You Do Not Like Your Current Attorney, Change!
We at Miller Law Group, P.C. are often the second lawyers that people use because they were unsatisfied with their previous representatives. Changing attorneys is not uncommon. People often hire lawyers who may have helped them with a car accident or maybe someone who helped them with a will, because the attorney says they handle divorce cases as well. However, they do it on the side, so it’s not their area of focus.
If you don’t have a good rapport with your attorney, change. If you don’t feel your attorney is doing all that they can for you, change. But you should do it in this order. First, retain your new divorce attorney, then end your relationship with your existing attorney. Now, your new attorney should handle everything for you—letting the former attorney know and informing the court. The attorney you chose for your case can affect the outcome of your case, so you should change your attorney if you believe you aren't getting the representation or guidance you need to prevail in your position.
