What Issues Are Covered by Family Law?
A family law attorney will help you to prepare for any type of case involving the family unit. Family law attorneys handle many subjects, including:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support or alimony
Because they involve those we love, our experiences with these issues are often emotionally draining. A family law consultation with a lawyer will undoubtedly give you support during an unsettled time.
How Best to Prepare for Your Family Law Consultation?
Since the type of case dictates what preparations are required, there is some variation in what documentation your attorney will need from you. In most cases, you will need to bring any relevant personal information. This includes birth certificates; bank statements & mortgage details; employment information; and relevant tax returns.
When you schedule a consultation with a family law attorney, ask what additional information would be useful to provide. It may also be necessary to provide further documentation after your consultation.
What Should You Ask During Your Consultation?
Each family law case begins with an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions, to tell your story, and to learn about the legal process. During your consultation, the attorney will listen to the facts of your case and advise you on the best way to approach each issue. Some helpful questions to consider asking include:
- Who will be my primary point of contact at the law firm?What is the best approach for me?
- How long do you think this case would take using this approach?
- How often do you handle cases similar to mine? What is the outcome?
- How much will this cost?
- How do you structure your fees?
It is crucial to work with an experienced family law attorney for any legal issues you may be experiencing. In order to best take advantage of the assistance provided by a lawyer, it is in your interest to be prepared before your initial family law consultation. Knowing the right questions to ask will enable you to make the best decisions to ensure your success.
