Have two possible attorney's that I will be interviewing in the coming days while the stbx plays
with Mr W
One has been in practice for over 37 years, is a litigator devoting 75% of their practice to litigation , the other has been in practice for 24 years and devotes 50% of their practice to litigation.
Question for the group, what types of questions should I be asking aside from explaining my situation? For those that had to go through a couple of lawyers before finding the right one, what type of script did you have for the consultation? If these 2 men don't pan out, will continue to look for more attorneys. I am in MA, which is notoriously hostile towards men, but for those that their spouse was the cheating one, how did leverage that as a bargaining chip? Not trying to make it the centerpiece.
Goals - minimum 50/50 custody with stbx, would like to get to a point where we are friends or at least friendly when at the same place together and swallow my pride when it benefits the kids. Prefer to negotiate a buy out/lump sum financial disbursement once custody has been locked in.
