In a judicial or tax procedure, the contribution of a lawyer is more than necessary. In this type of procedure, the role of a lawyer is not only limited to representation. In a judicial procedure, a lawyer has several roles: first of all, the role of adviser: a lawyer must, during the whole procedure, play the role of adviser towards his client. Secondly, the role of representative: in a procedure involving an appearance before a court or a judge, every individual must be represented by a lawyer who will speak and act on his behalf. But also to initiate or initiate proceedings on behalf of his client. Finally the role of defender: this is the main role of the lawyer. During the whole procedure in which his client is engaged, the lawyer must do everything possible to defend the interests of his client. Depending on the nature of the relationship and the circumstances of the separation, there are different divorce procedures: by fault, amicable. In a divorce procedure, the amicable procedure is the simplest and least expensive to implement. In this procedure, the two future ex-spouses will meet and agree on the terms of their divorce. Simply, they will define themselves the way they will share their property, or how they will share the custody of their child. But as it is a judicial procedure, the presence of a lawyer is necessary to make the procedure legal and having a legal value. Although his role is secondary, his contribution is more than crucial in the procedure. The solicitation of a lawyer must be agreed upon between the client and the lawyer and must be included in a contract. It is with this in mind that a formal request must be addressed to a lawyer in order to inform him of what is expected of him. But also, a lawyer's fees can quickly become astronomical if he or she can initiate proceedings on your behalf. In this case, it is important to set the rules before the contract is signed and to ask for a complete estimate of the lawyer's fees before any service is rendered.
