Family Law includes child custody; child support; property division; spousal support; and domestic violence. Family Law attorneys not only need to know family law, they also need to be proficient in contract law, property law, estate law, business law, securities law and criminal law. Having the right attorney can make a significant difference in how these issues are resolved.
If you are facing family law issues, you are probably facing one of the most difficult times in your life. Emotions are strong, and the process can be overwhelming. You may be tempted to keep costs down or make things “easier” by not hiring an attorney, but in most cases, this is a mistake. If you overlook something, you may lose a significant right or it may cost you far more to fix it later.
Hiring a lawyer does not mean that you need to file a lawsuit. Court should be a last resort. With the exception of filing for absolute divorce and some property division, it is not necessary to file a lawsuit to resolve any conflicts. Parties can negotiate and enter into a Separation Agreement contract which is binding on both parties to settle issues. If spouses cannot agree on their own how the issues should be resolved, they can go to Mediation or Arbitration to resolve them. A family law attorney can advise you through this process.
Know your rights, and get advice from a family law attorney before proceeding. A good attorney will offer more than just legal advice. She will be a support through the process and help you make wise decisions. Ms. McCray is committed to work diligently toward a resolution without litigation.
