Do I Need a Family Lawyer?

Given the numerous complex issues that can come up in any family law case, it rarely a good idea to go it alone. This is true when facing most legal issues, but even more so in family law; unlike most other areas of civil law, where only money is at stake, family law cases can affect far more important things, such as child custody and visitation.

For that reason, it's never a bad idea to hire a family law attorney if you're facing (or contemplating) a divorce, a paternity dispute, a child support issue, or a battle over the custody or visitation rights of your children.
