My family issue is complicated, but do I really need a lawyer?

No matter how carefully you plan your life, there are bound to be events that are out of your control. Some of these events may be family issues like divorce, child custody or an order of protection. When life throws you one of these curve balls, you may be totally unprepared. Managing your day-to-day routine can be hectic enough without a new, complicated legal issue on your plate.

If you and your family have encountered one of life’s little surprises, you may be wondering how to deal with it. One of your best options may be to hire a family law attorney. The right attorney may be just the advocate you need to help you with a tricky situation. Still, you may be wondering: Is hiring a lawyer even worth it?

Reasons for hiring a family law attorney

Many people feel intimidated or nervous around lawyers, but this is totally unwarranted. A good attorney can be your advocate, confidant and champion through the most distressing family issues. 

1. Simplifying complex issues

Family law issues like divorce, child custody and alimony can be endlessly complicated. Navigating them can be a major headache. If you attempt to handle these issues on your own, your situation may become even more complex. It may be better to spare yourself the trouble and hire a lawyer from the get-go.

2. Cutting through the red tape

Any legal process comes with a paperwork and red tape that can quickly become overwhelming. Family law attorneys know how to handle the bureaucracy of legal procedures as smoothly and quickly as possible. They can provide the tools that you need to cut through the seemingly-endless red tape.

3. Achieving results

People don’t hire lawyers for fun: They hire lawyers to get the results that they want. Family lawyers can use alternative dispute resolution like mediation or collaborative law to achieve your desired outcome. They can also be fierce litigators if a case goes to court. Hiring a family attorney may not have been something you anticipated, but it may be just the thing you need.
