Do I Need a Family Law Attorney?
You are not required to have a lawyer for a family law case. If you decide to represent yourself, it is best to consult a family law lawyer that is experienced in the issue or issues you are trying to resolve before attempting to represent yourself in court. Many family law attorneys provide “limited scope” representation. This is where the lawyer will help you with a particular aspect of your case. Their duty is then limited to what you hire them to do.
How Long Will My Family Law Case Take to Resolve?
All family law cases are particularly unique. The parties, their circumstances, and family dynamics are different. In order for a divorce to become finalized, certain and specific legal steps must be taken. The time it takes can depend on the length of the marriage, the assets involved, and whether or not the parties have mutual children. Child custody and support cases generally remain open until the child or children turn 18. A change in circumstances can be cause to go back to court in many different types of family law matters. Contact our family law attorney in Sacramento for more information.
Is Family Law Mediation Necessary?
The parties involved in a family law dispute can generally come to an agreement and file a stipulation with the court. When there is a child custody dispute and the parties cannot agree, they will be ordered to attend child custody mediation. In divorce cases, mediation is not required, however, participating in mediation to come to an out of court agreement may save you time and money. If you have a question regarding family law mediation, contact us.
