How to Choose the Right Family Law Attorney

Steps on how to find the best lawyer for your family law needs.

How to Choose the Right Family Law AttorneyFamily law attorneys deal with cases involving marriage, divorce, child support, alimony, timesharing (visitation rights), division of assets, paternity, domestic violence, adoption and guardianships. If you need a pre-nuptial agreement, want to file for divorce or are considering adopting a child, you can benefit from hiring a good family law attorney. Attorneys may be a dime a dozen, but not all have the same value.

How Do You Know If You Need a Family Law Attorney?

The first step to finding the right attorney is determining if you really need one. If any of the following apply to you, it is to your benefit to hire a family law attorney:

  • You are considering a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement before getting married
  • You are considering divorce, annulment, or legal separation
  • You need a divorce agreement modification
  • You need child custody and support guidance
  • You are considering adopting a child
  • You need help with a restraining order

What Is Your Venue?

For family cases the venue is normally where both parties intended to reside together as husband and wife. There are some exceptions to this policy, such as when the individual is in the military or resides in more than one state. For determination of paternity the proceedings must be in the circuit court of the county where the plaintiff resides or the county where the defendant resides.

The Search for the Right Attorney

Once you have determined the venue of your case, search for family law attorneys in your area. Attorneys who are familiar with the judges, local jurisdiction and with other attorneys involved in family law will be able to serve you better.

Once you have written down some names, do some online research on them. Google them, seek articles or reports on them (or by them), news stories or reviews. Many law firms use social media for marketing or advertising purposes, so look up the lawyer or law firm on any of the major social media networks such as Facebook or Twitter.

Narrow down your choices.

If you have asked for references from others and have researched enough on the attorney, you should have a proper sense of good attorney candidates. It is advisable that you schedule an in-person meeting with at least two attorneys which will help you make a firm decision. It is essential to know how you will interact personally with an attorney before you hire one.

Call and Make Your Appointment for a Consultation.

Some attorneys offer a free preliminary consultation on the telephone or in person. Make sure you inquire into:

  • Whether the attorney offers a free consultation
  • The approximate total cost for handling your matter
  • Whether fees can be negotiated or if a payment plan is offered
  • The attorney’s amount of time practicing
  • The attorney’s handling of cases similar to yours
  • An honest opinion as to the possible outcome of your case
  • Who will be handling your case
  • The type of information you need to bring to your first consultation

Make a list of all the questions or concerns you want to ask the attorney and bring them with you to your first consultation. Take notes of the attorney’s answers or suggestions.

Make Your Choice

Once you have met with your family law attorney candidates and done your research on them, you should be able to make a decision as to which attorney you will hire. Choose an attorney who makes you feel comfortable, who answers your questions in a way you understand. Address any concerns or doubts to your attorney and be sure you are both on the same page. Avoid any attorney who has solicited your business or who suggests anything unethical, such as a “guaranteed result.” Nothing in life is guaranteed. The right attorney will not pressure you into hiring him/her, and he/she will not hesitate to give you any references or credentials you request on the attorney’s experience.

    My fiance and I have decided to get a prenuptial agreement before we get married but we haven’t been sure how to go about it so we really appreciate this information. I like the suggestion you give of first deciding what the venue of your case is and basing your search off of that. I imagine that searching online would be one way to find reviews of prospective lawyers. Thanks for sharing this!

    Gaining custody of a child can be a messy situation, especially for the child. Having a family law attorney in this situation can help clean up that mess and make sure that the child goes to the right parent. I really like how you point out that you should choose an attorney who makes you feel comfortable and who answers your questions in a way you understand. I’m not a legal expert and I don’t understand law jargon, so having a lawyer in a situation like that would give me peace of mind.

    I’m so glad I read the section in this article about the times hiring a family law attorney is a good idea. I never knew that one of those times is when you are looking to adopt. We have always dreamed of adopting a baby girl, so it’s good that we know, now, that we will probably need the help of a family law attorney. In the end, I think if you don’t know whether your situation calls for a lawyer or not, it’s best to consult with one anyway and find out how they could help your specific needs.

    I think that’s a great idea you mentioned to ask an attorney his or her honest opinion as to the possible outcome of your case. I think it’s also always good to ask things about the charges. I’ve heard, for example, that some attorneys charge for phone calls and emails individually.

    I agree that you need to find how long an attorney has been practicing family law before you hire them. It would seem that you would want to find someone who has been around awhile because this shows experience. My sister needs a family lawyer to help with a divorce so she’ll have to find someone who has been practicing for awhile.

    It is definitely a benefit to ask about free consultations like the article suggests. After all, a free consultation will quickly let you know whether or not you have a viable case. This is especially important in something like family law where some divorce cases might not be as winnable as you think.

She is considering divorce, so she’s thinking about hiring an attorney soon. That point also emphasizes the need to do your homework before hiring a legal representative.

    The best part of your article for me is when you talked about how a reputable family law attorney will not hesitate to provide references to prove the attorney’s experience. My sister and her husband are ending their marriage, so my sister is looking to hire a family law attorney that can help her all throughout the process of divorce. It’s important for her to make sure that the lawyer that she will choose has an adequate experience in handling a case relevant to her needs. For me, a reputable lawyer is will be more than glad to provide a list of references of his past clients that he had helped so you can be more confident in his skills and abilities in helping you. I will make sure to share your blog with my sister.

    It’s interesting that you talked about choosing a local attorney because they are familiar with local judges. I have been looking for someone to help me with a family law case. I can see how it would be smart to choose a nearby attorney because they might know how to appeal to my specific judge.

    I like that you talked about how you must consider scheduling in-person interviews with at least two attorneys that you’re considering to hire to make sure that you’ll be able to come up with an informed decision when it comes to choosing the right attorney. My sister and her husband are considering divorce. She’s a very private person, so she prefers to make sure that she will only deal with a family lawyer that has a personality that will best fit her wants. It will make sense for her to interview the lawyers that she’s looking to hire once she decides to pursue the divorce process. Thanks for the tips!

    I like that you talked about how you must consider the reason for hiring a family law attorney to determine if you will really need one. My sister and her husband have been wanting a child.

    I like that you provided some tips for choosing the right family attorney such as checking for references. Your friends and family may be able to recommend someone whom they have consulted with before on a similar case. You may want to ask why they think the particular attorney is the best one to represent you. This way, you would be able to narrow down your choices and pick the one which you think is most qualified. If I were to look for a family law attorney, I would make sure to keep this in mind. Thanks.

    The article makes a good point about checking for free consultations. After all, when you’re choosing a family attorney you want to be able to sit down and talk with them first. A free consultation will allow you to do this as well as allow you to ask about prices.
