How to Win Your Custody Case: Will You Need an Attorney?

win your custody caseYou may wonder how you can win your custody case and get the most when it comes to time with your child and being able to make decisions on their behalf. Sometimes, two parents can’t come to a decision or agreement when it comes to time with a child and need to move forward with litigation as a way to settle matters. Although anyone will tell you that you don’t legally need an attorney to move forward, it’s a good idea to have one. From paperwork to actually going to trial, there is a lot to think about, which we will take a look at today.

Help With Your Parenting Plan 

All states want you to move forward with at least a basic parenting plan when you are working toward the best custody situation. If this is something that you and your spouse can figure out on your own, that’s great – and courts will encourage you to do so. But what if there are huge issues prevalent in your case, such as domestic violence or a parent who has not been in a child’s life much since birth? These are scenarios that might call for the help of an attorney, because you might find difficulty moving forward without one.

Help Presenting Your Case 

Custody attorneys are also excellent at helping you present your case. Of course, this is another aspect that you might be able to do on your own, especially if you want to call on witnesses for certain matters. However, an attorney can keep all your affairs in order, which means keeping track of all the documentation that is vital to your case and guiding you through the process to let you know what you should say and when you should say it.

As you can see, there are many reasons why you shouldn’t handle a custody case on your own, especially when certain conditions are present. Let us help you win your custody case and move forward during this time. Call us today for more.

Beyond impressed! I had been self represented through years of family law and child support court hearings and was so hesitant to hire an attorney out of fear and trusting that they would appropriately represent myself and child. After tons of research I contacted Ms. Azizi. I immediately was greeted by Lorenzo, the Office Administrator, who made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. He assisted in making communication seamless and effortless and walked me through each step of the process. Ms. Azizi heard my concerns and was extremely sensitive to the matter of FAMILY. The team did an amazing job with discovery and building a strong case that gave me confidence and I was successful in coming to an agreement with the other party, in what has yet to have been the easiest hearing of all, thanks to them. Ms. Azizi settled my case after years of stress and agony. I am grateful for finding the team and Ms. Azizi and definitely recommend them for any of your legal needs!

This law firm is the best! They have helped me so much with my Divorce and Criminal cases and I really wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have them to represent me. Lorenzo and Ro are awesome and are there to help at all times. My attorney was Mr.Edmondson and he has been amazing. This law firm is truly great and I will never go to any other one. Their responses are quick and will answer any questions you might have.

Seven stars. I had planned to put up my reviews after my final judgment but after the first hearing, couldn't wait, and I would write this whatever the outcome of my difficult case. Soheila was simply amazing in her arguments and strategy before the judge. I felt so taken care of. I chose her for her near-30 years of experience as an attorney, the depth and strength I observed in one who had weathered hardship through her many accomplishments, her compassion, and her smarts. I can't imagine what other attorney would have Zoomed with me even in sickness to help prepare me for a legal session. And I later saw how keen she'd been in her advice. I've been deeply touched watching Soheila and her paralegal Lynda Walker fight for my child as if he were their own. They in particular have treated me with great humanity - day and night from what I experienced at my former attorney's. Lynda is a gem, on her toes, flexible, hard-working, committed to each client, humble, and sweet. She has slaved over my case, doing much of the writing, watchful of me on paper and in person, guiding me gently while encouraging me to use my voice. The staff, including the office administrator Lorenzo and Linda C, is caring, respectful, and conscientious. A band of angels.
