If you are going through a custody dispute, you should know that it is your right to have the legal representation of your choice. A qualified custody lawyer can help with all aspects of a family law case and the general court process. For that reason, make sure you find the best one for your case. Here are some of the most important things to look for in any family law attorney.
A good family law attorney should have a minimum of 10 years of experience in family law and at least one year of practice as a divorce or custody attorney. A lawyer specializing in child custody can be very helpful because they know the intricacies of the legal system regarding children, such as how a court views a child's best interests in a custody case.
Current State License
Every state requires an attorney to be licensed. This basically means that they have passed an exam testing their understanding of the law. You should find family law attorneys who are authorized to practice law in the state of your custody case. At T.R. Spencer Law Office, we are licensed to practice law in Utah.
During your divorce or custody case, you will have to deal with an attorney on a very personal level. It is important that you find an attorney whom you can trust and feel comfortable around. Always ask friends, family members, and co-workers if they know of anyone they would recommend. At T.R. Spencer Law Office, we offer a free consultation which is the perfect time and place for you to get to know our lead attorney and ask questions.
Reputation and Credentials
In addition to finding an attorney you can trust, you want to choose the best one for your custody case. For this one too, be sure to get referrals from friends, family members, or even other lawyers. Like any service provider, you should check credentials such as education, experience, and client ratings. Another great place to look for a testimonial would be on their website.
