You will find so many divorce lawyers in New Fairfield. Head on over to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter New Fairfield Connecticut and click Search. You’ll get an extended list of divorce lawyers in and near New Fairfield.
You’ll realize that all of those lawyers look and sound the same. They will all let you know in their short identical Avvo blurbs that they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they believe you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
In the event that you click through to the web sites of these lawyers , that won’t help either. All of them have the exact 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, this 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 lawyer. You need a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in New Fairfield.
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 advisable to know that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has nothing at all to do with the actual performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to consider, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is dependent on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that should you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in New Fairfield are obviously not going to create testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a nearby DUI lawyer who has no necessary information about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in exchange for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about his or her DUI practice.
Don’t get fooled. The Avvo Rating doesn’t let you know how good or affordable any lawyer actually is.
And yes, you do want a cheap divorce lawyer 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 lawyer through 1-800-DIVORCE, but let’s face it, if you have an uncontested divorce, you WANT a cheap divorce lawyer.
You’ll also realize that a number of these 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|bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You’ll need a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You do not want your New Fairfield 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 at this time, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with this personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local New Fairfield divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some kind of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer tells you about himself or herself. That form of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it may not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you don’t have to find the best divorce lawyer in New Fairfield. No-one knows who that is anyway. You will need to find the best New Fairfield divorce lawyer FOR YOU!!
How to find YOUR divorce lawyer? Look at how each divorce lawyer handles his / her law practice. Why? Because that’s how s/he will handle your divorce or other family law case.
It is reasonable to assume that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the issues and challenges in their own businesses will be the way s/he handles the issues and challenges in your case.
People generally bring exactly the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So how each lawyer positions and promotes his or her own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to handle your personal legal and economic interests when they do not even look after their own business interests?
So look carefully at each lawyer. If they ONLY stand in line at Avvo with a bogus 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 lawyer who has seized the most effective family law brand in the world? What about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in New Fairfield? What about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to have a single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re looking for?
You don’t need to go with a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you don’t need to go with some me-too lawyer who simply blends in with every other divorce lawyer in Fairfield County. You need a lawyer who represents himself or herself creatively because that means s/he will handle your case the same way.
However, there’s even more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the premier divorce marketing brand on the planet. Think also about what else 1-800-DIVORCE means – to you AND to your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer.
1-800-DIVORCE brings your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer many more divorces than their local competitors. Lawyers who handle a lot of divorces are usually better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce lawyer who is well-versed in family law and understands the intricacies of divorce.
1-800-DIVORCE also has an affordability factor. The brand brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a reduced cost of case acquisition than their lawyer competitors pay. That means that your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is LIKELY to charge lower fees.
Many also have flat fee unbundled services like a document review legal services offering, where you will not only have your total fee up-front but also pay only for the legal services your situation really needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial consultations.
However, maybe the best economic factor for you to consider is that because of the memorability of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral bonanza. What will you be saying to a friend or relative who needs similar legal assistance in the future? You’ll say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a free case. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are free business to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for many 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 cost of case acquisition 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 lawyer understands that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you expect to have a real good job done in your divorce.
Only a great job will bring those free referrals. You don’t need to be nasty or mean about that reality. Just state it as a business proposition. Your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer will know it’s true. Tell him or her that you know a lot of people.
If your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer didn’t 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.

1-800-DIVORCE knows the traits to look for in a best-rated local divorce lawyer. But we needed to tell you something about what 1-800-DIVORCE seeks in signing up your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer. We didn’t just throw a dart at a local map.
So now we should also tell you a little about the most common family law services that are provided by 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers. Of course, the most typical is divorce. Legal separations are a lot less common.
In a common family law case, there will be many family law services provided – either as well as divorce or legal separation or as a separate service offering if the divorce itself has been completed or will not be requested currently.
Here are perhaps the most common additional family law service offerings, though these are not unimportant.
If there is one or more minor children of the marriage, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting must be addressed and resolved and become the subject of court orders.
Child custody and its related issues are always considered by the court to be more significant than a divorce itself or any other issues such as property or debt division. Obviously, child custody and visitation can be emotional issues for the parties.
To get a child custody case assessment and a better idea of what the likely resolution of a child custody litigation would likely be, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form below.
The issue of child support is also potentially emotional. Frequently, it is also a matter of economic survival going forward and justice.
Whether your child support topic is a question of ascertaining the correct dollar figure of child support to be paid, based upon the incomes of the parents and the ratios of primary physical custody of each party or if it is a matter of enforcement or adjustment of a current child support amount, your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in New Fairfield has you covered.
To consult with your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney and obtain a free child support consultation, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form at the bottom of this page.
Usually in a long term marriage, but also in shorter marriages, depending on circumstances, spousal support can be a critical matter. It will be the job of the judge to assure that the relative economic outcomes of the parties after the divorce are maintained as much as is feasible identical to the standard of living the parties enjoyed while they were married.
For a free spousal support assessment, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form at the bottom of this page.
When divorcing spouses cannot agree, a divorce does not have to be a big fight. For many divorcing spouses, divorce mediation is an excellent and affordable alternative to expensive litigation.
In divorce mediation, you and your spouse confer with a trained, un-biased mediator to discuss and resolve the areas of disagreement in your case. Such sessions often take place in a neutral office setting, but you may alternatively be able to go through your mediation online.
To find out about the divorce mediation services available from your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney in New Fairfield, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form at the bottom of this page.
Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both spouses agree that they want a divorce and that no one will legally contest the case or any of its parts, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In almost all instances, the court process for uncontested can be completed in a much shorter time than for litigated divorces.
You could sue for divorce believing that the case should be uncontested, but discover later that your spouse will. This does not occur frequently, but it happens.
You will want to inquire of your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer concerning the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. These are not suitable in ALL uncontested divorces.
The important factor in an uncontested divorce is to have a good and cost-effective lawyer on your side from the very start in case your uncontested divorce becomes contested or perhaps just needs some extra family law assistance.
