We have years of experience assisting clients with their child custody and modification matters, and we do our best to make the legal process as simple and easy as possible for our clients. Here are some of the most common questions we have heard regarding child custody and custody modifications:
What Does A Child Custody Attorney Do?
Family lawyers who handle child custody matters understand that no two cases are the same. The best custody attorneys look at each case individually and fight for the best interest of the child. Your attorney will help guide you through the legal process of gaining custody or modifying a custody order, and you will also receive assistance in filing paperwork.
You can expect a child custody lawyer to advocate for you and represent you in court, should the matter reach that stage. In addition, to spare you the expense and stress of a trial, a good attorney will attempt to negotiate and reach an agreement outside of court.
At What Stage, Should I Hire A Child Custody Lawyer?
If the parents or guardians disagree on the child custody terms proposed, then it is best to enlist the help of a legal professional. If both parents are seeking custody, have his or her own set of issues, and do not live in Oklahoma, a qualified attorney can help you navigate the legal system. If you're facing a challenging custody or modification case, then an attorney with a track record of winning custody cases in family court is your best bet for a positive outcome.
Where Can I Find The Best Child Custody And Modification Attorney?
Many people feel lost when it comes to finding the right attorney to represent them and their children in family court. One of the best ways to find a good lawyer is to check the Oklahoma Bar Association. Their website allows parents to search for an attorney near them and will show if a lawyer is in good standing. Check reviews on online directories and the attorney's website that you are interested in hiring.
Most importantly, ask questions during any consultations to make sure you are comfortable with the child custody attorney you are considering. You should also ask about their fees upfront so that there are no surprises down the road.
