Signs You Need to Hire a Child Custody Lawyer

Pursuing child custody is an emotional process and many parents consider representing themselves “pro se” (without an attorney). According to VeryWell Family, a resource for pregnancy and parenting, there are seven Red Flag scenarios when you need to hire a child custody lawyer, instead of going to court alone.

Consider hiring an attorney when:

  • Your Ex has Already Retained an Attorney
    • When both parties have attorneys, negotiations can be more realistic.
  • Your Case Has Become More Complicated
    • Experienced Family Law attorneys know the process and have seen complex situations before.
  • Your Case Crosses Jurisdictions
    • Laws vary from county to county, and state to state, an attorney will know what the sticking points are and can help you protect your children and your rights.
  • You Believe Your Children Are in Danger
    • If the police have been involved, you may need to seek a protective order to prevent any harm to your children.
  • Your Ex Is Trying to Prevent You From Seeing Your Kids
    • Custody situations are always emotionally charged, having an objective attorney to help guide you through the process and protect your time with your children is essential.
