Can I afford to hire an attorney for my family law case?

The price for a family lawyer can be steep depending on the nature of your case. When searching for a lawyer to handle your case, be sure to shop around. You do not have to
always go with the first lawyer you talk to. Even though you are providing confidential information in the consultation, that does not mean the representation has begun. Some lawyers offer payment plans that will allow you to make payments so that hiring a lawyer
does not break your budget. The tip is to hire a lawyer that meets all of your needs both professionally and financially.

I don’t want to deal with the courts because it rips families apart, can I do anything else?

    Contrary to most opinions, Courts are not in the business of ripping families apart. The people before the court usually are the ones who cannot make a decision, thus, leaving a third party who knows nothing about your personal life to make a decision about your life. Nine out of ten judges will honor an agreement made by the parties as long as it is in accordance with the law. Do not be afraid to utilize the court to have your agreements legalized. Having a lawyer who is familiar with the judges in a particular county will be able to advise you on how certain judges are likely to rule and if it would be best to reach an agreement before going to court.
