You will find so many divorce lawyers in Vadnais Heights. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Vadnais Heights Minnesota and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy list of divorce lawyers in and near Vadnais Heights.
You’ll notice that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to web sites of these lawyers , that won’t help either. All of them have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
All of them look and sound the same. All of them 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 prove it, it indicates nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy marketing position 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 Vadnais Heights.
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 nothing at all to do with the specific performance of the individual attorney. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to think, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is based on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that should you hover over the little information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Vadnais Heights are obviously not going to write testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in numerous 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 trade for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about their DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t tell you how good or affordable any attorney actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce attorney providing your divorce is uncontested. Cheap divorce lawyers tend to be good divorce lawyers 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 notice that several divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You could have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but many of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re telling you, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You will want divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Vadnais Heights divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been working on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So at this time, as you read this, only you understand what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Vadnais Heights divorce attorney who shows you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their 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 might not be. You are seeking clear reliable proof.
Also, keep in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Vadnais Heights. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Vadnais Heights divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to locate YOUR divorce attorney? Look at how each divorce attorney handles his or her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It is reasonable to think that just how business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their very own businesses would be the way s/he handles the issues 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 their 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 phony 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’s an example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce attorney who has seized the most effective family law brand in the whole world? What about a divorce attorney who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Vadnais Heights? What about a divorce attorney who is smart enough to have a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable phone number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re looking for?
So you don’t want to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you don’t want to go with a non-descript attorney who simply blends in with all other divorce attorney in Ramsey County. You want a lawyer who handles himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will look after your divorce the same way.

If there are minor children, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting must be resolved and be the subject of court orders.

When spouses cannot agree, a divorce does not have to be a big fight. For many divorcing spouses, divorce mediation is an much better and more cost-effective alternative to battling it out in court.

Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both spouses agree they want to dissolve their marriage and that neither spouse will legally contest the divorce or any of its issues, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In many instances, the divorce process for uncontested divorces will be finalized much sooner than for contested divorces.
You might file for divorce believing the proceeding will be uncontested, but discover later on that your spouse will. This does not happen frequently, but it happens.
You should inquire of your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer about the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. These are not suitable in EVERY uncontested divorce.
