Yes, if you believe your attorney isn’t working to achieve your aims in your divorce, you can fire them at any time and hire new counsel.
How to ensure you hire the appropriate attorney
It is strongly advised that you have a thorough conversation with your current counsel though to understand where they’re coming from.
If they believe the settlement you’ve negotiated is a bad deal for you, it may be worth listening to their advice and continuing to negotiate.
On the other hand, you may simply not “click” with your current attorney, and regardless of the situation with your settlement, you may feel that working with a new attorney will be more productive.
Make sure you hire an experienced attorney with the resources and focus to come up to speed on the issues of your case and your goals for the divorce very quickly so that delays are minimized.
The right attorney can make a difficult divorce much easier, and leave you with a settlement that’s much more favorable to you than you might otherwise achieve.
