Do I Really Need a Family Law Attorney?

While it is not court mandated for you to have a lawyer present during family law proceedings, it is still highly recommended to hire the services of an experienced family law attorney — especially if your case involves the following:

  • Contested divorce. You need an attorney on your side to advocate for your best interests and advise you of your options if your divorce is contested.
  • Child custody and child support. A family law attorney can assist you in determining what is best for your child and your family.
  • Domestic violence. Issues of domestic violence are emotional and psychologically challenging, and you may even fear for your physical safety. An attorney can help you explore all of your options, including restraining orders. Additionally, with a lawyer on your side, you do not need to face your abuser alone.
  • Mediation. Family law mediation can help you avoid the courtroom and resolve issues peacefully and settle on child custody arrangements that work for everyone. However, you should still have your own legal advocate on your side who can ensure that the outcome maintains your rights.
  • Appearances in court. If litigation is unavoidable, then you should have an advocate with courtroom experience on your side.

Although it can be financially enticing to represent oneself, most of us do not know the specific intricacies of California family law. As a result, people are often taken advantage of. Make sure this does not happen to you by having an experienced San Jose family law attorney by your side to protect you and your rights every step of the way.
