Family lawyers help people navigate the difficult and the unexpected circumstances of life. Hiring a family lawyer can help put your mind at ease and make the transition from one thing to the next much easier.
Here are all the ways that working with an attorney who understands family law can help you start fresh in your family’s next chapter.
Four ways a family lawyer helps your case
- Allows you to focus: Family lawyers are often consulted during times of huge change or negotiation, including divorce, custody arrangements, and division of property. These can be extremely emotional and confusing times. Having a family lawyers means that you don’t have to focus on sorting through the fraught emotions and complicated logistics of something new while also having to traverse complicated laws and legal issues. Your focus can be your family, your health, and your future, while your family lawyer focuses on the law and helps position you for future possibilities. Many clients have shared with us how much stress was lifted from them when they brought in a lawyer to help them navigate their situation.
- Offers clarity: No one goes into a marriage expecting a divorce or splitting up time with their kids and all of their possessions. You probably have hundreds of questions about what to do next and what’s going to happen. Your friends, family, and coworkers may offer a lot of conflicting opinions and advice. Lawyers have answers and experience. We can tell you what the laws of Utah say about your situation and how you can proceed. We can help you develop a timeline of what to expect and we can help anticipate future issues that may arise to help prepare you. Our experience and education means we know not only what your rights are, but also what judges care about, so that you’re fully aware and informed.
- Helps save money: Hiring a family attorney can cost you less than being taken advantage of. Divorce and property division can be expensive – you don’t want to go broke in the process of trying to reshape your life. Sometimes property and possession splits aren’t completely cut and dry and you need to bring in a 3rd party to help understand who should get what or how much is fair to pay. Family lawyers can help make a difficult situation less demanding and worrying.
- Sets you up for the future: A good lawyer now can help your future self in many ways. Not only will that lawyer help you fight for what’s best for you and your family, but they can also help foster cooperation and peace now that may keep relationships from completely falling apart later. Having a lawyer can protect you from paying too much alimony or child support, from not getting your fair share of an estate, assist with finding a fair arrangement for your kids, or losing a precious family heirloom. A lawyer can also shield you from threats from another party by working as a mediator – this can help preserve peace for future co-parents when emotions have cooled down the line.
