It is important to find the best divorce law firm for your case because only with the such expertise can you get the best outcome for yourself and your children.
You do not know what you do not know
Since you are a normal person and not a divorce lawyer, you will not know how best to handle a divorce.
Thus, you will not know what are the steps to take to secure the ideal outcome for your case.
Mistakes or wrong steps
In fact, people can make big mistakes or take wrong steps even before looking for their lawyer. This is a terrible situation to be in because your lawyer cannot turn back the clock.
For example, someone makes a report to the authorities against his or her spouse without checking with his or her lawyer first. Once the report has been made, it is often no longer possible to control the outcome of the investigation and the lawyer will not be able to cancel the report.It may be better to see if it were possible to negotiate with the spouse for better terms first before making any report.
Correct, initial steps
Especially with international cases, it is important to take the correct, initial steps. Once the wrong step is taken, it may be impossible to reverse the situation.
For example, in international cases (e.g., where the parties and/or their children are living in different countries or are of different nationalities), important questions include (a) which country's laws would result in a better outcome for you and your children; and (b) what are the factors connecting the case to that country (as opposed the factors that connect the case to Singapore).
Concrete and practical steps
The best divorce law firms can share with you concrete and practical steps you can take to help them get you better outcomes.
For example, you may be asked to brainstorm for many different ways to approach your spouse in order to amicably settle the case. You may also be asked to consider (a) sending a letter; (b) going through an intermediary (e.g., your relative or friend, your spouse's relative or friend); (c) going for mediation conducted by the court; etc. After that, go to a quiet place and carry out vivid visualization exercises to see which way is most likely to successfully result in a settlement.
Steps to Anticipate
The best divorce law firms can also share with you what steps to anticipate that your spouse may take to counter your actions.
For example, if you pick up your child from the kindergarten and bring your child to your own place, your spouse may ask to see the child. Will you allow your spouse to bring the child out? What if your spouse brings the child to his place and refuse to let you see the child?
It is important to analyze many steps in advance so that you are not surprised by what your spouse does in respect to your actions.
