Word of Mouth and Referrals
When you’re looking to hire a good child custody lawyer, it’s always a good idea to get recommendations from other people.
Start by asking friends and acquaintances who have had to hire a child custody lawyer. You can seek advice from court clerks at the court office or ask for a referral from a member of the state bar association. Some courts also maintain a network of lawyers and can give you a recommendation.
In other words, word of mouth and referrals from friends, colleagues, and acquaintances are one of the best ways to find a lawyer.
Do Your Own Research
Have you got the names of a few potential child custody lawyers yet? Great! It’s time to do some quick research to learn about the lawyers’ reputation and find out if any of them might be a good fit for your case. Just browse the Internet. Look at online reviews and read feedback from past clients.
Find out how many years has the lawyer been in practice, which bar associations and professional organizations he or she is a member of, and finally, if the lawyer has experience handling and winning your type of case.
After you have done your research, narrow your search to 3-5 lawyers, make an appointment and interview them before you make a decision about who you’re going to work with.
Before you meet, prepare a list of questions you want to ask them. Some questions can include:
- How many cases like mine have you handled?
- What is your initial opinion on my case?
- What sort of outcome should I expect?
- What kind of potential problems might affect the outcome of the case?
- Approximately how long will it take to resolve the case?
- How will you keep me informed about my case?
- How can I reach you and how quickly do you usually respond?
These are all good questions that will help you understand what to expect from your potential child custody lawyer.
Don’t forget to take notes during your meetings so that you can compare lawyers after interviewing all of them, consider cost and fees, and choose the best fit for your needs and budget.
