Top 5 Signs You Need an Attorney for Child CustodyBy Moskowitz Law Group, LLC |
While going through a divorce is already stressful, the process can be much more overwhelming when children are involved. In these cases, a child custody attorney might be needed to effectively represent your rights. Determining whether an attorney is necessary to help with child custody is a difficult decision. Here are five signs that indicate hiring an attorney for child custody is the best course of action for you.
Your Ex Has a Lawyer
If your ex is already working with a lawyer, then you should probably hire one as well. If you choose to not hire a lawyer, you will be representing yourself against an experienced legal professional, which may likely lead to an unfavorable outcome. An attorney could handle the case for you and give you valuable peace of mind during the ensuing litigation.
Your Ex is Trying to Keep the Kids Away
If you believe your ex is trying to prevent you from seeing your children, you should talk to an attorney about your options. Your ex might be trying to deny you your rights to see your kids, which could complicate the custody proceedings. A lawyer could intervene to help you see your children.
Significant Custody Changes
If you and your ex have a joint custody agreement, but your ex starts becoming less cooperative, a lawyer may be needed. An attorney could help you navigate this change and work on minimizing any complications to get you a fair agreement.
If you and your ex live in different states, this complicates the child custody process. A lawyer could explain your different custody options in this situation and help you navigate the laws of the different states.
You Think Your Child is in Danger
If you think your child is in serious danger, an attorney could protect your parental rights and safeguard your child’s wellbeing. An experienced attorney could guide you through the process of protecting your child and compiling evidence that your child would be in danger in your ex’s custody.
