Clients need to be more assertive about asking their divorce attorneys questions about the things they do not understand. They also need to be more deligent about keeping their attorneys accurately informed about any developments that could affect their case. Fore example, it is important for a divorce attorney to know that the client and the other spouse have made side agreements that are in conflict with a standing order.

On the other hand, divorce attorneys need to understand and be sensitive to the fact that for most of their clients, getting divorced is a first-time experience. Most people have never seen the inside of a courtroom except on television which we all know is a far cry from reality. Many of the things divorce attorneys take for granted about legal procedures and the court process is totally foreign to most divorcing clients. Attorneys need to take the time to ensure that their clients are informed about what to expect.

Remember, your attorney is working for you, and he or she is being paid by you. This being the case, you need to let your divorce attorney know what you expect of him or her and what you want done. Your attorney's job is to take instructions from you and it is your job to tell your divorce attorney what you want him or her to do. To get the best possible outcome in your divorce and custody case, you need to have a good working relationship with your divorce attorney with very clear lines of communications established. In that way, even when things do not go as well as you would like, there will be no surprises.
