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 during divorce is not uncommon. People often hire lawyers who may have helped them with a car accident or bankruptcy, or maybe someone who helped them with a will, because the attorney says they do divorce as well. However, they do it on the side. 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 he or she 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, informing the court. And nothing is going to hurt you. You shouldn’t even skip a beat. If you think the time is here where you need to change attorneys, don’t second guess yourself.
It happens all the time.
