Times have changed within the family law industry including how clients choose an attorney and how they get divorced. The Internet has become the singular most popular and influential source of legal information and legal forms. Many people choose to represent themselves, higher a non-lawyer, or higher an inexpensive and inexperienced attorney with an attractive webpage. This practice of hiring counsel (or not doing so) and prosecuting divorce actions has replaced the traditional model of hiring competent counsel based upon a referral from friends or other professionals. As a consequence, there has been a tremendous rise of incompetent advice, unfair results and flawed divorce decrees.

It is also not an appropriate to hire an inexperienced attorney even if they have a pleasant appearance on the Internet.
