When to Get a Family Attorney
The process of hiring a family law attorney can be stressful, and these heightened emotions are only exaggerated by the situation you might have found yourself in. It’s for this reason, and many more, that some people try and resolve their legal issues with their families on their own. This might seem to be the best way to maintain the goodwill and integrity of the family, but more often than not, this can needlessly complicate an already confusing experience.
Negotiating in a family or a marriage can be challenging, but when you work with a trusted attorney, these processes become clearer, and the best interests of every part involved are maintained. Investing in the legal counsel of a family attorney is a great way to minimize headaches and heartache. A family law attorney offers you the steady guidance you need when you’re making life-changing decisions. There are a few moments, in particular, where it is beneficial to have a family law attorney on your side:
- Marriages and divorces
- Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
- Child custody and abuse cases
- Alimony and child support
- Property settlements

Take Advantage of Our Knowledge
No one knows your family better than you do, but that doesn’t always mean you know the best way to handle its legal issues and concerns. If you find yourself in a tense legal case with another family member, it’s always a good idea to have a knowledgeable team backing you. Perhaps the most obvious benefit of working with a family law attorney is the vast knowledge of law they have. This ensures that you have every advantage in your case. More than just legal knowledge, experienced family legal teams like Kirlew Law have a network of resources and connections that can help you get satisfactory results at the end of your case.
Follow Procedures for the Best Results
Every state has its own set of proceedings, laws, and rules surrounding families and family law, and Florida is no different. Even for those who have a sense of the legal procedures of Florida, the unique nature of family law in the state can make it difficult to successfully represent yourself. By working with a family law attorney, you’re ensuring that these procedures are followed to the letter. This can not only accelerate the progress of your case but also ensures that it does not get thrown out of court. Your attorney will help you organize your case, your materials, and your outcomes to take care of you and your family.
Fully Understand the Outcomes
There’s uncertainty behind every legal proceeding, but when it comes to family law, the outcomes of the case are not always obvious. Working with a qualified family law attorney ensures that you understand the outcomes that are possible for your particular case, and their ramifications and consequences. This understanding can help you make decisions as to how to best prepare or react to the court’s decisions.
Keep the Monetary Elements In Mind
For most, concluding a family legal case is the start of the emotional healing process. While this is the ultimate goal for many, there are still monetary realities to consider when dealing with matters of family law. In cases like child support, alimony, and divorce, money can be a central issue, and it’s important to keep that as the key focus in most circumstances.
Maintain Case Timelines
Experienced family law attorneys recognize that different types of cases have different timelines to work within. Cases like divorce move along at a different schedule than something like child custody or adoption. Your attorney can set expectations for you as to what needs to occur when in order to move your case along properly.
Lower the Stakes
While the state of Florida allows for self-representation, in high-stakes family law cases, this is a recipe for disaster. Most court and family law cases involve contentious issues, intense negotiations, and delicate outcomes. Without proper legal representation, you’re likely to lose your day in court.
An experienced family lawyer can help improve your odds and can help you advocate for your rights and needs.
Get Objective Guidance in Emotional Times
Especially in family law cases, it’s easy to be “too close” to the case to adequately represent yourself. Your emotional investment in the outcome and in the others involved in the case may blind you to important details, major pitfalls, and alternative outcomes. Rather than trying to complete the research necessary to build your case, a family law attorney can bear this burden and complete the work needed.
Not only is a family attorney a source of legal counsel but they are also a source of emotional comfort. Thanks to their experience in this field, the Kirlew Law Firm can connect you with resources that make this time easier for you and your family. In moments when it feels like your life is falling apart, a family law attorney can help you piece it back together again.
Ultimately, a skilled family law attorney like Kirlew can help you see through the emotions of the case and help you fully understand your options, outcomes, and processes. In some cases, this can help you pivot and make new legal decisions, and in other cases, can eliminate the need for a legal proceeding at all.
