California law can be complex and often confusing, especially when it comes to child custody or support. This is exactly why you should hire an attorney that is experienced in family law cases instead of trying to figure it out yourself.
Here are a 4 reasons why hiring an attorney in the San Diego and La Mesa area is the best decision you can make for your family:
1. Mistakes can be costly, both emotionally and financially and because of the stress involved, you may wind up with an agreement that really doesn’t benefit your children.
2. Every word in a legal document is significant. Even a simple word such as “shall” has tremendous meaning in a legal document or in family court. A skilled attorney understands the nuances of language when drafting your child custody agreement.
3. Communication and negotiation with your ex may be challenging, which is part of why you are exes. An attorney advocating on your behalf is more likely to be able to communicate and negotiate with your ex, even when you can’t.
4. An attorney who focuses on child custody will spend time getting to know your family dynamics and will create a customized agreement based on your specific family needs. This is important especially if we turn your child custody agreement into a court order.
The entire process is very detail oriented and takes patience, persistence and strategizing. You should hire an experienced child custody attorney to work on your case. An attorney who knows how to properly draft a very specific written child custody agreement, file it with the court and have it turned into a court order.
I’ll say it again, you don’t know what you don’t know.
