The family law lawyer you select for your case can make a significant impact on your current life and future. Therefore, it is essential that you choose the right one. Since there are a plethora of family law matters such as divorce, child custody, spousal support, and parenting plan modifications, your goal should be to find the lawyer who has experience handling a case similar to yours. To help you find the right lawyer, consider asking any lawyers you interview the following questions:
1. How long have you practiced family law?
You do not want to choose a lawyer who is a jack of all trades and represents clients in all types of cases. By selecting a lawyer who has been focusing on family law for many years, you can ensure that they will understand the complexities involved in your case.
2. How many cases have you handled that are similar to mine?
A family law lawyer may have handled hundreds of divorce cases. However, they may have minimal experience representing clients who have cases that involve complicated child custody matters. If your case is a complicated one that involves child custody, do not hire an attorney who is not experienced in this matter.
3. Who will be working on my case?
You may have an initial consultation with one family law lawyer and later find out that a lawyer with less experience will be the one the actually working on your case. Make sure you understand exactly who will be working on your case so that there are no surprises.
4. How long does it take you to respond to emails and phone calls?
It is imperative that you seek legal representation from a lawyer who responds quickly to your questions or concerns. Before you allow a lawyer to handle your case, gain a thorough understanding of their communication policy.
5. How will you charge me?
While some family law lawyers charge an hourly rate, others work on a flat fee or retainer. Find out how a family law lawyer will charge you and whether your case will involve costs for court, outside consultants, and other things.
