How Our Tailored Legal Skills Help in Family Law Cases
The best family lawyers understand all the nuances of the law and have the skills of a litigator and a negotiator. They are able to manage time properly and meet deadlines for paperwork and court documents.
We take these skills and couple them with strong people skills, including the ability to interface with the opposing counsel, and the ability to speak on your behalf in court.
Divorce: If one partner hires a lawyer for a divorce case, then it is imperative that the other partner does the same. Having legal representation will ensure that an appropriate settlement plan is put in place, and above all, the emotionality of the case can be handled easier than with self representation. Divorce attorneys serve as a liaison when there is contempt between spouses.
Child custody, child support, or alimony: A client may have child custody and financial support stipulations in place from larger divorce proceedings. However, many of these conditions can change or be revisited based on actions by the other parent, including when financial situations evolve.
Paternity: Often determined through DNA testing, paternity tests can prove biological relationships between father and child, and can help a mother in the process of securing child support from an absent father.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by a family law case, realize that the feelings you are experiencing are natural and that you can have support in this difficult time.
