You will find far too many divorce lawyers in Upper Darby. Go to Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Upper Darby Pennsylvania and click Search. You’ll get a very long listing of divorce lawyers in and near Upper Darby.
You’ll observe that all those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all let you know within their short identical Avvo blurbs that they’re “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you want to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click to the internet sites of those lawyers , that won’t help either. Each of them have the exact same cookie-cutter websites.
Each of them look and sound the same. Each 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 don’t want to listen to any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, it indicates nothing. “I think I’m a genuine great guy, and you should too.” is not a very wise marketing position for a lawyer.
Let your spouse have that weak lawyer. You want a lawyer of demonstrated higher quality to protect your legal and economic interests. You want the best divorce lawyer in Upper Darby.
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 be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the actual performance of the individual lawyer. It is not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any kind of performance metric by that lawyer. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that if you hover over the small information icon alongside the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Upper Darby are obviously not going to write testimonials for his or her divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in various fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So a local DUI lawyer who has no necessary understanding of the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a great testimonial about some non-competitive divorce lawyer in trade for an equally dishonest and meaningless testimonial by that divorce lawyer about their 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 observe that several divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You may 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 suggesting, “Hey, we do a|little bit of everything. Please hire us for something.”
You want a divorce lawyer who handles only family law matters. You don’t want your Upper Darby divorce lawyer to pick up the telephone to you when she’s just been focusing 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 realize what’s involved with your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Upper Darby divorce lawyer who shows you some type of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates their abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer tells you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It may be accurate, but it could not be. You are looking for clear reliable proof.
Also, remember that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Upper Darby. Nobody knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Upper Darby 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 think that the way in which business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their own businesses would be the way s/he handles the problems and challenges in your case.
People generally bring the same knowledge, intellect, analysis and incentive to each and every problem that faces them. So just how each lawyer positions and promotes their own law practice would have been a strong indication of how s/he will conduct your case.
Why would you hire a lawyer to take care of your own personal legal and economic interests when they don’t 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 is a typical example of a lawyer who represents himself or herself well? What about a divorce lawyer who has seized the best family law brand in the whole world? What about a divorce lawyer who has secured the 1-800-DIVORCE brand to the exclusion of all other divorce lawyers in Upper Darby? What about a divorce lawyer who’s smart enough to have a single word as their brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the sort of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re trying to find?
So you do not want to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . Also, you do not want to hire a non-descript lawyer who simply stands in line with every other divorce lawyer in Delaware County. You want a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business boldly because that means s/he will handle your divorce the same way.
However, there’s still more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the premier family law marketing brand on the planet. Think 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 many divorce cases tend to become better at it 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 lower case acquisition cost than their competitors mustpay. This means your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many also have flat fee a la carte services such as a document review legal services offering, where you will not only have your total cost 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, perhaps the best financial factor for you to take advantage of is that due to the word of mouth factor of 1-800-DIVORCE, it is a referral goldmine. What will you say to a friend or relative who is in need of the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll just say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They looked after me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a free case. All of your referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake to your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer for years to come. S/he 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 may 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 knows that you will refer friends and relatives to him or her through 1-800-DIVORCE but that you want a very good job done in your case.
Only a great job will lead to future referrals. And you do not need to be nasty or mean about that fact. 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.

Following are perhaps the most common additional family law service offerings, which is not to say that they are any less important.
If there is one or more minor children of the marriage, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting must be resolved and become the subject of court orders.

The topic of child support is also potentially emotional. Frequently, it is also a matter of economic survival going forward as well as just plain fairness.
Whether your child support topic is a matter of ascertaining the correct or fair dollar figure of child support to be paid, based upon the relative incomes of the parents and the percentages of physical custody of each parent or alternativelyif it is a matter of either enforcement or adjustment of an existing child support amount, your near-me 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Upper Darby has you covered.

Often in a lengthy marriage, but also in shorter marriages, spousal support can be a critical issue. It will be the concern of the court to make sure that the relative financial outcomes of the parties after the divorce are maintained as much as is possible the same as the economic standard of living the parties experienced during the marriage.
For a free spousal support assessment, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form at the bottom of this page.
Even when divorcing spouses cannot agree, a divorce does not have to be a big fight. For many spouses, divorce mediation is an much better and more cost-effective option to battling it out in court.
In mediation, you both confer with a trained, neutral mediator to weigh up and resolve the issues in your case. Mediation sessions frequently occur in an informal office setting, but you may alternatively be able to go through your mediation online.
In order to find out about the divorce mediation services offered by your local 1-800-DIVORCE attorney in Upper Darby, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form at the bottom of this page.
Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both spouses agree they want a divorce and that neither spouse will legally fight the case or any of its constituent parts, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In almost all cases, the court process for uncontested will be finalized in a much shorter time than in fought divorces.
You could sue for divorce believing the process will be uncontested, but discover later that your spouse will. This does not occur often, but it does happen.
You will want to ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer about the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. These are not suitable in ALL uncontested divorces.
The main factor in an uncontested divorce is to have an experienced and cost-effective lawyer on your team from the start just in case your uncontested divorce blows up or needs some extra family law assistance.
