The video talks about people who are considering separating or divorcing. Those people may want to meet with a family lawyer to discuss their options. Hiring the right attorney is crucial in getting the desired settlement or ruling.
The speaker talks about how hiring an attorney doesn’t always mean that the two parties will end up going to court. There are some situations where the attorney helps the two people resolve their differences before the case goes all the way to court. Two semi-amicable people can create an agreement about custody, visitation, or property distribution with the attorney’s help if necessary.
The speaker also advises prospective clients to be completely honest about all of their circumstances. Doing so will maximize the chances of the court case having a positive ending to it. It’s important never to leave an attorney blind in any situation. A family law attorney can best help if he or she knows everything about a prospective client’s situation, such as a criminal record, financial struggle, or something else that could make a custody case more challenging.
The attorney a person chooses should be someone that the individual is very comfortable talking to. The two parties must have personalities that agree with each other for a strong working relationship to develop.
