Do I Need To Hire A Lawyer?

Child custody issues in Texas require a lawyer who will work with you to convince the family court judge that you are best suited to take care of the child's interests. Additionally, your lawyer plays a crucial role in ensuring that you get the best out of any legal agreement that is signed out of court.

When hiring an attorney, there are three main things you will have to consider:

  • Resources
  • The complexity of your case
  • The reputation and experience of the law firm

What Are The Factors That Affect My Child Custody Case?

1. The complexity of your case.

When your child custody situation is likely to be complicated, it is advisable that you hire an attorney. It is especially so if the marriage ended badly. Additionally, if the custody hearing is interstate, you will need to hire the services of a competent lawyer. I will help relieve some of the pressure that comes with dealing with such a case.

If you try to represent yourself, things could go quite badly. Even if you have some legal experience, it may not be of much use to you. The reason for this is that your judgment could be clouded by emotions. I will give you the guidance you need to settle this matter as soon as possible and with as little friction as possible.

2. The reputation of your attorney.

Before signing anything, it is your legal right to investigate the reputation of an attorney. When looking for a prospective lawyer, you should also ask about the strategy they will use. It gives you an idea of your chances of winning.

3. The financial implications.

When hiring a lawyer, consider your budget. In some cases, the case can continue for a long time, which could strain your resources. You need to ensure that you have enough legal resources to see the case to its conclusion. Come up with a solid financial plan. It is best to prepare for the worst even when it does not come to that.
