Do I Need an Attorney for Family Law Matters?
At first, many individuals believe they can handle family law matters without the assistance of a legal expert. We recommend consulting an attorney regardless of the previous relationship you’ve had with family members. Having an attorney is a way to prepare and protect yourself from any difficulties or surprises. Texas law involves strict timeframes and nuanced statutes that each party must consider during the course of legal action.
For child custody and rights issues, your attorney will play an instrumental role in protecting your rights as a parent or guardian in front of conflicting parties and the state justice system. During family law matters, those involved can expect their lives to fall under the strict scrutiny of the courts. In today’s world, something as seemingly innocent as a social media post could tip the balance of legal decisions.
When to Contact an Attorney for Assistance
In some cases, you will contact an attorney reactively, after you have been served with a divorce notice or another legal document. In others, you may reach out to your family law attorney in anticipation of filing for custody, adoption, or divorce. Reach out to an attorney at Ted Smith Law Group, PLLC, whenever you have questions regarding your legal situation. After a free consultation, you can decide if our team of legal experts is the right fit for your needs.
Your family attorney will not only provide guidance before and during a legal proceeding; he or she may play a role long after an initial case settles. For instance, custody and visitation rights often go back to court over time for modification. Choose a family law attorney you can trust to put your best interests first as your family learns how to manage life in a new legal structure.
