  1. Is your divorce a fault or a no-fault divorce? Keep in mind that in some states all divorces are no-fault divorces, and in others all are fault divorces. In fault divorces it's a good idea to get a lawyer, but it's not required.
  2. Is your divorce (fault or no fault) contested or uncontested? In contested divorces (even no-fault divorces) it's highly advisable to find a lawyer in order to defend your interests. In uncontested divorces (which can be fault or no fault), you may not need a lawyer if you and your spouse agree on how to divide property, assets and child custody.
  3. Are there children involved? Children can complicate the divorce process, so you may want to find a lawyer to help you set up a parenting plan, help with custody arrangements, and tell you about your state's custody and support laws.
  4. Are you interested in a collaborative divorce? If your divorce is uncontested, and you and your spouse don't wish to spend time and money on litigation, a collaborative divorce may be right for you. You and your spouse would work together with your lawyers to create  a Divorce Settlement and child custody agreement, and you would agree not to go to court.
Whatever your divorce situation is, you'll want a lawyer who specializes in divorce law and who handles cases for people similar to you in situation and financial ability.
