I cannot afford a lawyer for my custody case

I cannot afford a lawyer for my custody case

You have decided that you need to go to court for custody of your child.  Maybe this decision was made for you because the other side has served you with notice and you have a court date coming up.   Maybe you realized that you need a custody order, or that the custody order in place needs to be modified.    Going into court over child custody can be scary and filled with uncertainty.  An experienced family law attorney will help guide you through this process.

It is always a good idea to have the benefit of a seasoned family law attorney when going to court.  The right lawyer has the knowledge, wisdom, and experience to help you get the best results.  Lawyers, however, come at a cost.  What do you do if you don’t think you can afford an attorney?

Unfortunately, many people choose to go to court without a lawyer because of the cost.  Going into court and representing yourself is almost always a mistake; a mistake that can have negative consequences that can go on for years.  Not knowing the law, the procedure, and the factors that judges consider in custody hearings can result in spending time and energy focusing on facts that aren’t relevant to the proceeding and missing facts that can have a great impact.  Representing yourself will weaken your case and wind up costing you more money in the long run.

You can’t afford to represent yourself!

An experienced family lawyer will be a great asset to you in achieving your  custody goals.  Given what is at stake, it is worth hiring an attorney to represent you, even if it means borrowing the money or delaying an upcoming vacation.
