There are so many divorce lawyers in Belen. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Belen Texas and click Search. You’ll get a lengthy list of divorce lawyers in and near Belen.
You’ll notice that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all tell you inside their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click through to the web sites of those lawyers , that won’t help either. Each of them have exactly the same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each of them let you know about 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 means nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy legal advertisement for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak attorney. You need an attorney of demonstrated higher quality to look after your interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Belen.
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 remember 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 believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that attorney. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo tells you that if you hover over the little information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Belen are obviously not going to publish testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI attorney who does not have any necessary understanding of the attorney s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for a similarly dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce attorney about his or her 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 many of these divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You might have found them on Avvo’s divorce page, but a number of these lawyers also handle bankruptcy, DUI, personal injury, crime, car-wreck, immigration, social security disability, etc. They’re letting you know, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce attorney who handles only family law matters. You do not want your Belen divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been taking care of a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So right now, as you read this, only you understand what’s associated with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Belen divorce attorney who shows you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the attorney informs you about himself or herself. That kind of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it might not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce attorney in Belen. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Belen divorce attorney FOR YOU!!
How to find 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 believe that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the difficulties and challenges in their own businesses would be the way s/he handles the difficulties 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 his or her own law practice will be a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a attorney to handle your own personal legal and economic interests when they don’t even look after their 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 such a lawyer.
So what is a good example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce attorney who has seized the best 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 Belen? What about a divorce attorney who’s smart enough to have one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable contact number?
Isn’t that the kind of dynamic problem-solving divorce attorney you’re looking for?
So you do not need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” attorney . And you do not need to go with a non-descript attorney who simply stands in line with every other divorce attorney in El Paso County. You need a lawyer who handles himself or herself decisively because that means s/he will handle your divorce the same way.
But there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard divorce marketing brand in the world. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney more divorces than their competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorces tend to become better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce attorney who is experienced in divorce and understands the intricacies of divorce.
1-800-DIVORCE also has an affordability factor. The brand provides 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced case acquisition cost than their local competitors mustpay. That means your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney is LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many also offer flat fee a la carte service packages such as a case review package, where you will not only know your complete cost up-front but also pay only for the services your case actually requires.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial case strategy sessions.
But perhaps the foremost economic indicator for you to consider is that due to the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who is in need of similar help in the future? You’ll just say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney for years to come. S/he badly WANTS that free business.
Your 1-800-DIVORCE referrals are what bring your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer’s case acquisition cost way down. They will get 2, 3, 6 divorces for the cost of one (yours). And that’s why they signed up. And you know that, and they know that, and they hope you know that.
So take advantage. Be sure that your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney understands that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you want a real good job done in your divorce.
Only a good job will bring those free referrals. You do not need to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE attorney will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney did not have 1-800-DIVORCE, how would you refer friends and colleagues to him or her. You’ll forget his or her name and you’ll lose his or her email address. In 2 or 5 years, you’ll never remember, but you’ll never forget 1-800-DIVORCE.

Following are perhaps the most frequent secondary family law service offerings, which is not to say that they are any less important.
If there is one or more minor children, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting have to be resolved and become the subject of court orders.
Child custody is always considered by the court to be more significant than a divorce itself or other connected topics such as property division. Clearly, child custody can be stressful topics for the parties.
To get a child custody case assessment and a firm grasp of what the probable resolution of a child custody and parenting action will be, call 1-800-DIVORCE or complete the web form below.
The topic of child support is also likely to be stressful. Often, it is also a concern of financial well-being going forward as well as justice.
Whether your child support topic is a question of ascertaining the correct dollar figure of child support to be paid, as determined by the relative incomes of the parents and the percentages of physical custody of both parties or if it is a matter of enforcement or modification of a current child support order, your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Belen has you covered.

Usually in a long term marriage, but also in other marriages, depending on circumstances, spousal support can be a critical issue. It will be the concern of the judge to make sure that the economic outcomes of the parties after the divorce is final are maintained as much as is possible identical to the economic standard of living the parties enjoyed during the marriage.
For a free spousal support assessment, call 1-800-DIVORCE or complete the web form at the bottom of this page.
Even when divorcing spouses disagree, a divorce doesn’t have to mean an expensive trial. For many spouses, divorce mediation is an excellent and affordable alternative to expensive litigation.
In mediation, you and your spouse confer with a professional, neutral mediator to discuss and resolve the issues in your divorce. Mediation sessions often take place in a neutral office setting, but you may alternatively be able to go through your mediation online.
In order to find out about the divorce mediation services available from your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Belen, call 1-800-DIVORCE or complete the web form at the bottom of this page.
Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both parties agree they want to dissolve their marriage and that neither spouse will fight the divorce or any of its constituent issues, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In many cases, the divorce process for uncontested will be finalized much sooner than in contested divorces.
You could file for divorce thinking the proceeding will be uncontested, but find later on that your spouse will. This doesn’t happen often, but it happens consistently
You should ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer about the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. These are not appropriate in ALL uncontested divorces.
The important consideration in an uncontested divorce is to have an experienced and affordable lawyer on your team from the very start just in case your uncontested divorce becomes contested or perhaps just requires some extra family law assistance.
