In other posts, we discussed the first, second, third, and fourth tips that you should follow when preparing to work with a lawyer for your child custody and/or visitation issue in court. Let’s go on to the fifth and final tip.
Remember that the vast majority of family law lawyers charge an hourly rate. The more work they do, the more you will end up having to pay them. By contrast, the more work you do for your lawyer, and the more preparation you put into your case, the less work your lawyer will have to do, and the less you will have to pay him or her. This advice is especially helpful if money is tight. You should not feel like you are unable to hire a lawyer if you are not super rich. As long as you are willing to do the work in a timely manner and get things done, your lawyer should not have a problem with you helping with your case. In fact, your lawyer should appreciate you taking such an active role in your case. Having this kind of teamwork go a long way to benefit your case and hopefully earn the outcome you want, and at the same time save you some money.
This is the last of our five tips on the things you should do before meeting with a family lawyer. The next step is finding and meeting with the right lawyer. If there is any other advice we can give you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
