Meet With Multiple Lawyers

It’s always a good idea to meet with more than one family law attorney when you first start out. If you simply go with the first one you meet — because you’re short on time, they seemed OK, etc. — then you may look back with regret when you realize you could have worked with someone better suited to your case. Meet with several and compare them to find the best attorney for you.

Check Their Experience

They could be the best child support lawyer out there, but if they don’t have much experience as a child custody attorney, then they probably aren’t right for you. Ask about their experience both as a family law attorney and with cases similar to yours.

Compare Costs

We sincerely hope the cost of a family law attorney is never so high that it prohibits you from working with them. However, costs will vary between family lawyers and it’s wise to compare these costs upfront so you don’t have surprising bills later on.

Ask for First Impressions

When you first meet with a family law attorney about your case, go ahead and ask for their initial impressions of your situation. Do they think you’ll get full custody? Do they think you have a right to alimony? This will give you a good idea of how they initially think the case will go.

Clearly Share Your Goals

No matter how a family law attorney thinks a case will go, however, be sure to share your goals, desires, and expectations. Let them know what you want out of working with them and find out how they can help you get there.

  1. My best friend since elementary school told me last Friday that she wants tog et a divorce. She has three children all under the age of ten and wants to get custody of them in the divorce. So, I liked what you said about checking a child custody attorney track record with wins and looking at the years of experience they have. http://darrowlaw.com/practice-areas/divorce-and-family-law/
