6 Reasons Why Owning Your Own Peaceful Divorce Business is both personally and financially rewarding.
For those seeking a career with great earning potential, independence, and the opportunity to have a positive influence in the world, We invite you to consider a business offering peaceful divorce services. Let me share with you six reasons why this is a worthwhile business choice.
1. The market potential for peaceful divorce is large.
The trend toward peaceful divorce is growing. More and more people are rejecting the old model of hiring lawyers for an expensive and bitter litigated divorce and are choosing other alternatives – in fact, it has been recently reported that 95-98% of all divorces in the United States are settled out of court. This, coupled with estimates that about two million people are getting divorces each year, means there is a great market potential for businesses focusing on peaceful divorce services.
2. The legal industry market is changing; having a peaceful divorce business will keep you moving forward.
During our recent recession years, there has been a noticeable drop in the demand for costly legal services, and fewer employers are hiring new lawyers. Paralegals are also finding it harder to find employment, especially if they are new to the field.
Additionally, people today are looking for specialists rather than generalists. In family law, focusing a business to serve the growing market of people seeking peaceful divorce is a smart move. Having a “niche” business may at first seem limiting, but it is actually a proven strategy to increase business. Making peaceful divorce services your “niche” will make you the expert your target clients are seeking.
3. A peaceful divorce business can provide a new path to independence for paralegals.
According to a survey reported a little over a year ago in DailyReportOnline.com, a survey of over 200 paralegals, legal assistants, legal secretaries and others who had been working in legal offices in Georgia showed that almost half of the respondents were unsatisfied with their salaries and also felt that much of their workday was spent on duties unrelated to their paralegal training. Some had been laid off and either could not find work, or had to accept jobs at lower salaries.
As a result, some of those surveyed had become independent paralegals and started their own businesses. The article interviewed some who had made this move and quoted them as saying that they were much happier working for themselves, having flexible hours, and enjoying more autonomy.
4. A peaceful divorce business component can bring increased revenue for established legal firms.
If you are an attorney in general practice or family law, or provide mediation services, have you considered expanding your practice to include peaceful divorce services? You can increase your revenue without additional overhead. By adding a peaceful divorce component to your firm, you can capture a market segment that you may have been missing.
5. You can make a positive difference in people’s lives.
Does your current legal career enable you to make a positive difference in the lives of others? Would you like to use your training and skills to help people through the difficulties of divorce, guiding them through the divorce maze with compassion and support? By assisting couples to work out a divorce agreement that supports the needs of every family member, you can have a positive effect on the outcome and make a real difference in people’s lives.
