5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Family Law Attorney – I’ve been practicing family law for nearly 25 years. In that time, I’ve had the pleasure of serving thousands of families in legal cases involving everything from divorce to child custody, child support, adoption, alimony, property division, and everything in between. It’s truly a joy to wake up every day knowing I get to help people when they need it most.
With that said, there are those who believe they can represent themselves in court rather than work with an experienced family attorney. Whichever choice you make is up to you, but remember having an advocate in your corner has its benefits.
Here are five reasons why you should put your trust in a family law attorney for your next case.
If the other party in your case hired their own attorney
Simply put, if the other party in your divorce case has an attorney ready to duke it out in court, then you need a lawyer, too. That’d be like going into a gunfight with a knife, and we all know how those end. Give yourself the best chance possible to win a case by keeping the playing field even.
Lawyers are trained to handle what you can’t
No one’s suggesting you couldn’t come out on top should you decide to represent yourself, but lawyers are trained to know, understand, and defend every nuance of family law. Even if the result doesn’t go in your favor, your lawyer will ensure you don’t agree to demands that may put you at a disadvantage while also negotiating the best possible outcome.
Legalese and form filling is not for everyone
Even if you have some knowledge regarding the legal system and the myriad of paperwork that must be completed accurately and on time, you are bound to run into some issues that might delay the process or put you in a worse position.
Lawyers will remain objective
No matter how savvy you are with the law, it is nearly impossible to separate yourself emotionally from your own case. That can lead you to make poor choices in the courtroom, which can cost you and your family financially. Having a lawyer who can create a compelling and objective argument gives you a distinct advantage.
Think about your family
Having a lawyer in your corner is important because their job is to look out for you AND your family. This is particularly important if you have children, who are likely more confused and emotionally devastated than you are.
