Do I really need a family law attorney?

If you ask yourself this question, you probably already know the answer. Yes, you absolutely should consult with a family law attorney. You’ve likely already gone too long without proper legal advice about the problems you’re concerned with. And the longer you wait, the more problems you will likely encounter. Problems usually don’t get better with time. They only get worse.

Although you can handle your own legal problem in court, it’s probably not a wise choice. A well known saying is that: “He who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.” Frankly, you cannot be objective about your own case. If you aren’t a lawyer, you don’t know the law. Even if you are a lawyer, but aren’t a family lawyer, you probably don’t know all the detailed issues involved in family law. Plus in your own case, any knowledge of the law is obscured by emotion. Do yourself, and everyone else, a favor; hire a family lawyer who has the experience with the kinds of issues in your case. Follow that advice.
