Going through a divorce is hard enough, but factor a custody battle into the situation and it can feel overwhelming. We are here to help. We have a few tips to consider when looking for an attorney.


You need to have an attorney who understands not only the laws surrounding child custody but the situation you are in. A lawyer who specializes in family law is a great place to start. Family law attorneys deal with all things related to divorces and custody of children, all day, every day. This fact makes them better suited than non-family law specialized attorneys to handle your case by a large margin. They also understand how difficult it is to be in your position and want to help you through it quickly.


This is a no-brainer, an attorney who has too many cases to take on, isn’t suited to take your case. Don’t push for them to take your case if they tell you that they are busy, even if they come highly rated. The only reason an attorney would say they are too busy is because they know that taking more cases will affect their ability to perform. You want your attorney to be able to give their top performance.


It is not required to have an attorney with years of experience, but a proven track record is very comforting when choosing between attorneys. An experienced attorney is preferred because they have seen more and done more in the legal system. This makes them better suited to handle your case knowledgeably and efficiently so you can get back to a normal life.
