Affording a Family Law Attorney
Many people with a family law dispute try to handle their case themselves – often with predictably disastrous results. Family law disputes are high-stakes, and you need an attorney with experience in this area to protect your rights. Many people who represent themselves miss critical deadlines, don’t request what they really want or fail to gather sufficient evidence to support their positions.
If you go to court, the fact of the matter is, you may have only one shot to convince a judge that your position is the correct one. If you fail, then you are starting from a disadvantage if you try to modify a decree. Of course, it is perfectly understandable to be worried about costs. However, the costs of not hiring a family law attorney are often greater: It costs more to fix a separation agreement, custody agreement, divorce or adoption that was handled improperly. If you don’t have an attorney, you could pay more in child support or alimony than you otherwise would. Similarly, you might get far less than you are entitled to. In other words, you could be leaving money on the table.
Not thinking through all the complications that come with divorce means that you often have post-agreement and/or post-decree disputes revolving around visitation, child support, post-separation support and alimony, and property division. Additionally, “home-grown” or form internet agreements are quite often not enforceable and lead to more costly problems down the road. It costs time and money to resolve these disputes, which an attorney could have handled the first time around when you were pursuing these issues.
In truth, you can spend money now to resolve the family law dispute the right way or you can pay more later to try to clean up the mess you made.
