A. DO I NEED A LAWYER TO HELP ME?
THE STAKES ARE HIGH, YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE OR HAVE A RESULT THAT ISN'T AS FAVORABLE TO YOU AS POSSIBLE!
While there is no requirement for anyone to hire a lawyer to assist them in any phase of a family law matter, there is so much at stake, the procedures and law so complex, and the need to effectively argue before the judge, that it is truly foolhardy to attempt this on your own.
All the time, people come to our offices after having attempted to do a child support or child custody hearing on their own because they were way over their head. Our attorneys know how to present evidence to a Judge or Master, know what evidence is relevant, know the applicable law, and know how to oppose an attorney fighting for his or her client ... which is your Ex!
B. CAN I TRY THINGS ON MY OWN FIRST AND IF I DON'T LIKE THE RESULT, THEN HIRE AN ATTORNEY?
We see this all the time and it is certainly not the way to go! While there are instances where a bad result can be challenged, it is far more cost-effective to do it right from the beginning, by hiring us, rather than getting a bad result and having us then fight to change it. Also, in many instances, the standard to change a result is called, "abuse of discretion." This is a high standard to achieve ... you are arguing on appeal that the judge abused his discretion in making the decision he did.
C. WHY HIRE THE ATTORNEYS AT HENRY LAW?
We are skilled attorneys dealing with all aspects of Family Law Matters. Importantly ... we listen. We listen to your concerns and goals, advise you on how to best achieve them, and we fight for you! Every client gets a cell phone number to call because we want you to be able to reach us whenever you need us. Unlike other legal matters, Family Law is highly emotional and stressful to those going through it, with everything on the line, because it involves how often you see your kids, who has legal and physical custody of the kids, who has to pay whom alimony and how much, what property goes to whom, etc., ... we understand these things and treat you accordingly.
