Why It Is So Important To Find An Experienced Family Law Attorney?

Family legal issues are usually emotionally charged, and they can have many layers. It takes a skilled lawyer to help you understand your rights and obligations under the law and to ensure that all the legal processes are carefully followed.

When looking for an attorney to handle your family law issues, choose an attorney who:

  • Will answer your questions and explain what you can expect to happen next
  • Will listen to your concerns and goals and keep those in focus throughout your case
  • Is equally capable of negotiating amicable agreements and aggressively litigating

Attorney Lewis offers a comfortable, supportive atmosphere with a small firm feel – but big firm results. She has the flexibility to handle multiple different facets of a family legal situation, such as divorce, custody, property division, and issues of support. She takes an approach tailored to the needs of each client and can effectively advocate for your needs both inside and outside the courtroom.

How To Prepare When You Are Considering A Divorce

The more organized you are, the easier it will be to file your divorce petition and effectively negotiate a settlement. When you are approaching a divorce:

  • Gather all your financial records, including tax returns, deeds, bank statements and investment records.
  • Take inventory of your assets and debts, including those related to real estate, vehicles and personal property.
  • If you have children, begin thinking about how you can prioritize their needs and develop an equitable custody arrangement and parenting plan.
  • Separate your electronic accounts from your spouse’s accounts, and review your credit so that you can make sure there are no surprises.

Finally, you should take steps to learn more about the rules that apply to different types of divorce. If you or your spouse is in the military, or if you are a same-sex couple, your divorce often will have unique issues. The process for a divorce where spouses cannot come to an agreement on issues like property division is very dissimilar from that of a divorce where spouses can agree on all issues. You may also want to learn more about the value of mediation in divorces with areas of conflict.
