Custody Issues

Are you already divorced and have a custody agreement in place that your ex-spouse isn't following? If so, this can be really frustrating. After all, the custody agreement was put into place for a reason. When you hire a family attorney, they can help represent you in court to make sure that your ex starts following all of the rules. 


If you are in the midst of filing for divorce or if you just got separated, then you definitely want to hire a family attorney; especially if you have kids. When you have children it makes the situation a whole lot messier and divorce can really bring out the worst in people. Your family attorney will be able to represent you and your children to ensure that everyone is getting the best treatment possible. Also, your family attorney will make sure that your soon-to-be ex-spouse isn't harassing you or anything like that because you want to ensure that you are always as safe and comfortable as possible. 

Child Support

Another popular reason why people hire a family attorney is if they are having trouble getting child support from their ex. When you are having a hard time getting those monthly payments it can make your financial life a lot more stressful and it just isn't fair. Plus, not to mention it's definitely not legal. When you hire the help of a family attorney, they will advocate on you and your child's behalf to help get child support going forward; even if that means putting a lien on your ex's money. 

As you can see, there are a variety of different reasons why you may want to hire the help of a family attorney to help you out.
