When Do I Need A Family Law Attorney?

A Family Law Attorney possesses a wide range of knowledge and has the expertise to guide you in a variety of family law matters. Some matters that a Family Lawyer might assist you with include the following:

1. Divorce- This is probably the most common issue for which most people contact a Family Law Firm. When initiating and experiencing a divorce, emotions can run high and confusion will ensue. Seek out assistance from an expert Divorce Attorney to ensure that the process is as smooth as possible from beginning to end.

2. Domestic Abuse- If you have been mistreated by your spouse or partner, we strongly encourage you to consult with a Domestic Violence Lawyer who has the knowledge and resources to guide you and advise you in a manner that will keep you and your children safe from more harm.

3. Child Adoption- An experienced family lawyer can help you through the process of legal child adoption and other family law issues.

4. Guardianship- When a natural parent of a child cannot take care of a child adequately, guardianship might be passed over to a friend or family member. The legal guardian then makes all legal decisions regarding the child.

5. Child Abuse and Neglect- A family law attorney might be consulted when there have been accusations or suspicion of child abuse by a partner or family member.

6. Child Custody and Visitation Rights- During the divorce process or even after the divorce is finalized, parents might reconsider child custody and/or visitation rights of the other parent. A Child Support Lawyer can help you decide what is fair and which environment might be best for the child according to the current law.

7. Prenuptial Agreements. If you have questions about whether you need a prenuptial agreement or even questions about a prenuptial agreement that has already been crafted, contact a Prenuptial Agreements Lawyer who can guide you through the process.

Why should I hire a Family Lawyer for my divorce?

While the reasons for hiring a Family Lawyer might vary greatly from family to family, the most common reason people hire a Family Lawyer is during the divorce process. Some couples believe that they will have an amicable divorce, while others’ divorces are more complex. No matter what your situation is, hiring a divorce attorney is always a good idea. Here are some reasons to consider hiring a Family Lawyer for your separation or divorce process.

  1. Less stress. Hiring an experienced Divorce Attorney will take the burden filing paperwork and learning court procedures off the parties involved.
  2. Fewer delays. Because the Family Lawyer has vast experience in family law matters, the process will move forward more efficiently than if the parties involved file the case themselves.
  3. Clear and binding. The divorce decree will be clear and concise if an experienced divorce lawyer is the one to create it. There will not be any accidental misinterpretations of the law.
  4. Advice from a knowledgeable expert in Divorce and Family Law. An expert in the field of Family Law can help the parties involved learn all that they are entitled to according to the law.

While everyone who is considering a divorce might benefit from an attorney, there are special circumstances when couples considering a divorce should always hire a Family Attorney. When there has been any history or suspicion of child abuse, child neglect, domestic violence, or sexual abuse on either side, you should never attempt to negotiate your own divorce terms. Hiring a Divorce Lawyer is the best path to keeping you and your children safe during the divorce proceeding and after the divorce is finalized.

A Divorce and Family Law Attorney can help you navigate a peaceful path through an emotionally painful time of life. An experienced Divorce Lawyer will help you find out what you are and are not entitled to and protecting your rights, all while taking into account your family’s specific situation and needs. A Family Law Attorney has the knowledge and resources to guide you through child custody conflict, guardianship, division of assets, property, and money. The common layman might not be able to negotiate that on his own without the guidance of an expert, when the divorce details are more complex.
