Tips On Finding a Good Family Lawyer
Ok these tips aren’t going to be your usual white washed legal advise but rather based on real experience.
Ask for references
If your lawyer gives you the car salesman line, don’t you trust me or something along those lines, run for the hills.
Drive the ship
Always remember who is paying the bill, it’s you did you forget? Many lawyers pray on your anger and formulate plans to exact it at your ex. Now really what they are doing is putting blinders on you and leading down the path. Take control and learn early to say NO to your lawyer.
Double check with SOME family or friends
Now be very careful here. Asking for advice from your cheerleaders can and often does get you in more trouble. Find someone who doesn’t hate your ex like you do and someone who can say no to you. This person will help guide you better then anyone else.
Get free advise
Many courts have a free advise center. Depending on your income you will either get procedural advise or detailed advise. I suggest you don’t let them know you already have a lawyer and make them think that you’re looking for one. This way you will get some ‘extra’ advise to help keep you and your real lawyer in check.
Having these basic tips when going through what is often called hell will help to keep you guided in a healthy direction.
