Three Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Family LawyerBy Moskowitz Law Group, LLC |
Going through an intra-family legal issue is often a difficult situation that can be taxing on all of those involved. Sometimes the first step of deciding whether to hire a family lawyer at all is the hardest step to take. Here are three questions you should ask yourself to help guide you through the decision process.
1. What Goals Do I Want to Accomplish for my Case?
When deciding whether to hire a family attorney, it is important to have a goal in mind for what you want to accomplish pursuing your case. With some cases, you may just need legal guidance with a certain issue. In other cases, you may need a certain task accomplished, such as a written agreement.
Sometimes, you may need an experienced attorney to navigate you through complex legal systems. Each step of these processes is important and can affect your future, as well as the ease with which you can move forward with your case.
Having a careful and knowledgeable attorney can help ensure all these processes go as smoothly as possible. Thinking about these factors should guide you in deciding whether you want to hire an attorney and which one would best suit you and your legal needs.
2. What Kind of Attorney do I Need?
Family law is a multi-faceted and complex practice area, covering everything from child support and adoption to domestic violence and child abuse. Each of these specific areas has different complexities that may require a unique legal approach.
Doing research and reading on different family attorneys can help you find a representative who has a strong background with cases like yours. Experience can be a great factor in choosing an attorney.

3. How do I Think my Case Will Proceed?
Attorneys can’t predict exactly what will happen as you pursue your case, but when you have a consultation or an initial meeting with a lawyer, you should ask about potential outcomes. Experienced attorneys should be able to help guide you through the beginnings of a case, whether this entails only first steps or a more extensive timeline.
It is generally best to decide sooner rather than later if you need to hire a family attorney for your case. Each case will be different from another, so seeking a consultation could give you a more personalized idea of what your options are and help the process go more smoothly.
