If you’re in the process of filing for legal separation or divorce, or if you’re already divorced and you need help with child custody and support matters, you’ll want to retain a family law attorney. Family law attorneys are experienced in all types of matters that concern family courts, such as divorce, custody, child support and alimony. When seeking out an experienced Austin family attorney, consider the following:
Experienced in Family Law Matters
While you can certainly retain a general practitioner to help you with family law matters, it’s beneficial for you to retain an Austin family attorney that has a specific concentration in family law. The laws surrounding family court change continuously, and an attorney experienced in such laws can better advise you on your particular situation.
Help with Complicated Situations
Unfortunately, most divorces are complicated and can be a very stressful situation for you to work though. Your attorney can help you by explaining how the law works and what scenario would be, not only the most likely outcome but what is best for you. For example, you may not be willing to share custody with your soon-to-be ex, but your attorney will explain to you why sharing custody is in the best interests of everyone involved. Or, you may be demanding alimony, but there are certain circumstances in which alimony is not awarded, and your attorney would explain the law and how it pertains to you.
Each situation is unique, but using an experienced attorney with the Jackson Law Firm will be beneficial to your situation. Reach out to our team today for more information.
