Batch your questions for appointments or telephone appointments so as not to overwhelm your lawyer with information. Don’t bombard your lawyer with calls, messages or emails. Be honest about all the bad things about your life or people that you associate with. Don’t bring a box of documents, Tupperware box of documents, Ziploc baggy of documents with no sense of organization. Research attorney reviews on the Internet to get a feel on responsiveness, character, staff interactions, etc. You are still married until the divorce decree is entered and final. Let your children spend time with the extended family. Consistent negative reviews is a bad sign but one or two negative reviews out of many positive reviews is usually a client that can never be made happy. Recruitment occurred in two phases: RDS-only followed by development and implementation of an online social network strategy in combination with RDS peer referral (RDS SNS).Compared to RDS-only, RDS SNS reached a sample that was younger (χ = .02).
There are recent efforts to adapt social networking sites into public health research for recruitment and retention , the Internet may be an efficacious method in recruiting LGBT youth as a hard-to-reach population in public health research.
DON’TS: Don’t hire a lawyer who has no family law experience.
Don’t hire a lawyer based solely on their reputation. Don’t hire a lawyer who doesn’t have a systematic approach to communication. WHAT DO I TELL MY LAWYER DO: Tell him or her the truth Do you own legwork, copying and organization. (Bringing your lawyer a Tupperware box full of documentation with no organization will only increase your attorney’s fees). Fill out all worksheets given to you by your attorney in a timely manner.
Unfortunately, the heart and soul rarely follow the ways of logic!
Whatever the circumstances of the divorce, it is still the breakdown of a significant relationship, with a person that was meant to be a partner for life.
