You will find way too many divorce lawyers in Pecan Acres. Visit Avvo.com and enter “divorce” as the practice area and then enter Pecan Acres South Carolina and click Search. You’ll see a very long list of divorce lawyers in and near Pecan Acres.
You’ll observe that all those lawyers look and sound the same. They’ll all inform you in their short identical Avvo blurbs they are “compassionate,” “aggressive,” “good listeners,” “blah…blah.” Whatever they think you wish to hear, that’s what they’ll say.
If you click to the websites of those lawyers , that won’t help either. Each of them have the 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 do not want to hear any of that noise. If they don’t really prove it, this means nothing. “I think I’m a real great guy, and you should too.” is not a savvy marketing position 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 Pecan Acres.
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.
You should also be aware that the prominent Avvo Rating displayed in each lawyer’s profile has absolutely nothing to do with the particular performance of the individual lawyer. It’s not based, as Avvo wants you to believe, upon client testimonials or any type of performance metric by that lawyer. It is founded on “peer recommendations.” Avvo lets you know that should you hover over the small information icon next to the rating.
So because other divorce lawyers in Pecan Acres are obviously not going to publish testimonials for their divorce lawyer competitor, lawyers in different fields of legal practice dishonestly trade recommendations with each other.
So an area DUI lawyer who has no necessary knowledge about the lawyer s/he is recommending for divorce will write a good 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 inform you 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.
Additionally you will observe that several divorce lawyer’s websites are “jack-of-all-trades” websites. You might 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 letting you know, “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 do not want your Pecan Acres divorce lawyer to pick up the phone to you when she’s just been working on a criminal record expungement or a social security disability case. Those are very different specializations involving different laws and thought processes.
So today, as you read this, only you realize what’s involved in your impending divorce or family law case.
Armed with that personal knowledge, you’re looking for a local Pecan Acres divorce lawyer who demonstrates to you some sort of unique spark – some creative problem-solving indication that demonstrates his or her abilities. Again, don’t listen to what the lawyer informs you about himself or herself. That type of self-praise means nothing to you. It might be accurate, but it may not be. You are searching for clear reliable proof.
Also, bear in mind that you do not have to find the best divorce lawyer in Pecan Acres. No-one knows who that is anyway. You’ll need to find the best Pecan Acres 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’s reasonable to assume that the way business people (like lawyers) handle the problems and challenges in their own businesses will be the way s/he handles the problems 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 take care of your own 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 fake 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 such a 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 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 Pecan Acres? What about a divorce lawyer who is smart enough to have one single word as his or her brand, firm name and forever memorable telephone number?
Isn’t that the type of dynamic problem-solving divorce lawyer you’re searching for?
So you do not need to hire a “jack-of-all-trades” lawyer . And you do not need to hire a non-descript lawyer who just stands in line with every other divorce lawyer in Sumter County. Instead, you need a lawyer who represents his or her own law practice business decisively because that means s/he will handle your case the same way.
But there’s more. 1-800-DIVORCE is not just the gold standard family law 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 more divorces than their competitors. Lawyers who handle many divorce cases tend to become better at handling divorces than their local competitors. You definitely want a busy divorce lawyer who is experienced in divorce and knows what s/he is doing.
1-800-DIVORCE also has an affordability factor. The brand brings 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers divorces at a lower case acquisition cost than their local lawyer competitors pay. That means your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer is MUCH MORE LIKELY to request lower fees.
Many also offer fixed fee unbundled services like a case review legal services offering, where you will not only know your complete cost up-front but also pay only for the legal services your divorce actually needs.
Most 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers also offer free initial consultations.
But perhaps the best financial indicator for you to take advantage of 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 is in need of the same legal assistance in the future? You’ll say, “Call 1-800-DIVORCE. They took care of me.” And that’s the payoff for the lawyer – a case they don’t pay anything for. That and all of your other referrals (and the referrals from your referrals) are the icing on the cake 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 case acquisition cost way down. They will get 2, 3, 6 divorce cases 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 use that knowledge to your advantage. Make 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 want a real good job done in your divorce.
Only a good 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. Be sure to 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 people 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.

Of course, we might have just advised you to call 1-800-DIVORCE. 1-800-DIVORCE has been signing up the best and most affordable divorce lawyers and introducing them to divorce buyers since June 1991.
1-800-DIVORCE knows what to look for in a top local divorce lawyer. But we needed to tell you a little with regards to what 1-800-DIVORCE looks for in qualifying your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer. We did not just toss a dart at a map.
But right now we should also tell you a little about the usual family law services that are provided by 1-800-DIVORCE lawyers. Of course, the most usual is divorce. Legal separations are less common.
In a common family law case, there might well be many family law services provided – either as well as divorce or legal separation or as a separate service offering if the divorce has already been done or will not be pursued currently.
Following are perhaps the most frequent additional family law service offerings, which is not to say that they are any less important.
If there is one or more minor children, then the issues of child custody and visitation/parenting must be addressed and be the subject of court orders.
Child custody is always regarded by the court to be more important than a divorce itself or any other issues such as property division. Clearly, child custody and visitation can be stressful topics for the parents.
To get a child custody case assessment and a firm grasp of what the likely outcome 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. Often, it is also a matter of economic survival as well as justice.
Whether your child support issue is a question of ascertaining the correct or fair amount of child support to be paid, as determined by the incomes of the parents and the ratios of physical custody of each party or if it is a situation of confirming or adjustment of an existing child support, your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Pecan Acres has you covered.
To consult with your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer and obtain a free child support consultation, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the web form at the bottom of this page.
Often in a lengthy marriage, but also in other marriages, spousal support can be a critical issue. It will be the job of the court to make sure that the financial positions of the parties after the divorce is final are maintained as much as is possible the same as the 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.
When divorcing spouses cannot agree, a divorce does not have to mean an expensive trial. For many divorcing spouses, divorce mediation is an excellent and affordable option to expensive litigation.
In divorce mediation, you and your spouse confer with a trained, un-biased mediator to discuss and finalize the areas of disagreement in your divorce. Mediation sessions often take place in an informal office setting, but you may also be able to go through your mediation online.
In order to learn about the divorce mediation services offered by your local 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer in Pecan Acres, call 1-800-DIVORCE or submit the form at the bottom of this page.
Uncontested divorces are divorces in which both parties agree they want to dissolve their marriage and that neither spouse will fight the divorce or any of its constituent parts, e.g. custody, support and property/debt division.
In many instances, the divorce process for uncontested divorces will be completed much sooner than for litigated divorces.
You might file for divorce thinking the case will be uncontested, but discover later on that your spouse will. This does not happen frequently, but it happens consistently
You will want to ask your 1-800-DIVORCE lawyer about the availability of flat-fee unbundled services in an uncontested divorce. Bear in mind that these are not appropriate in ALL uncontested divorces.
The main factor in uncontested divorces is to have an experienced and affordable lawyer on your side from the very beginning in case your uncontested divorce blows up or needs additional family law services.
