How much does a family law attorney cost?

The cost of your family lawyer will vary based on exactly which type of case you have, how they bill their clients, the lawyer’s experience, and other factors.

And others charge a flat rate for different services.

Yes, many law firms do offer free case evaluations and consultations before you and the firm agree to work together. Your evaluation will help you understand the ins and outs of your case and help you discover potential pitfalls and roadblocks, and will give you clarity on what you can realistically expect as the outcome of your case.

What is a family law lawyer, exactly?

Family law covers the rules and court procedures that encompass the family unit. Naturally, many of these cases can be both emotional and personal.

What kind of questions should I ask a lawyer before I hire them?

Asking questions is one of the best ways to decide whether or not a lawyer is truly a good fit for your case. Be sure to ask whether the attorney specializes in family law, how many cases they’ve handled, how long they’ve been practicing, what they expect to achieve with your case, how and how often they bill their clients, and how they handle client communication.

Can I represent my own case?

Hiring a lawyer is not a legal requirement for your case. But as with many things in life, it usually pays to call a professional. Just like you wouldn’t try to put out a house fire by yourself, you probably shouldn’t try to resolve a messy divorce alone, either. The legal system is complicated and stressful—don’t make your life any harder than it has to be.
