Should I Consult A Family Lawyer After My Divorce?

If you are considering divorce, it’s important that you are prepared for the legal and financial consequences of this decision. Divorce is an emotional and difficult process. One of the most common questions that people ask is whether they should consult a family lawyer after a divorce.

A family lawyer may not be the first thing on your mind at a time like this, and it’s understandable. Nevertheless, after just one consultation, divorce couples are usually relieved, empowered, and relaxed. Aside from learning how to protect their rights, aid their children, manage their finances, and ensure the correct division of the family property, they also gain valuable information from a family lawyer.

In spite of the fact that there are no specific laws about hiring a family lawyer after a divorce, consulting one can be a good idea for several reasons. Here are the top 5 reasons to consult a family lawyer after a divorce:

1) Understanding Your Rights and Responsibilities 

Depending on your particular circumstances, family lawyers are educated and trained in family law legislation and legal precedents. The lawyer can assist you in obtaining information about your rights and obligations in various areas, such as parenting, child support, spousal support, and property division. Also, they have firsthand knowledge of how cases are decided and negotiated by the courts in real-time.

In addition to offering advice and suggestions, they can reduce costs and support your family. A range of dispute resolution methods are available, including mediation, arbitration, early intervention case conferences, dispute resolution officers, settlement conferences and litigation.


2) Negotiating Your Divorce Settlement

In the event that you and your spouse are able to reach an agreement on your own, a lawyer can review the divorce settlement agreement and ensure that it is fair and in your best interest. Moreover, they will ensure that the agreement is legally binding and can be enforced in court if necessary. 

They can help you understand the legal implications of the agreement and help you understand how they may affect you in the future.


3) Developing A Financial Plan Post-divorce

In the event of a divorce, your financial situation may change drastically, so it’s important to be prepared for the changes. By working with a lawyer, you can gain a better understanding of your financial rights and responsibilities, and develop a plan to protect your financial interests. The other area where a family lawyer can provide crucial advice is when it comes to budgeting and financial planning.

When you need additional assistance with financial planning following a divorce, a lawyer could also provide you with resources and refer you to financial advisors or other professionals who can assist you in preparing your financial plan for the future.


4) Child Custody And Support Issues

Family lawyers have experience in high-conflict families and the protection of children in family law disputes.  These lawyers use their education and experience to assist their clients to find child-focused solutions and protect their rights.

Here are some specific ways that a family lawyer can help with child custody and support issues:

  • Provide legal advice on child support and custody issues
  • Facilitating negotiations with the other parent or their lawyer
  • Advocating for you in court
  • Assisting you in understanding the applicable laws and legal principles


5) Navigating Through Divorce Process

You may face many legal and logistical challenges during this time, and an attorney can provide invaluable guidance and support. A family lawyer is knowledgeable about court and divorce procedures, as well as how to navigate the legal process efficiently and avoid pitfalls. Throughout the process, family lawyers can advise you on how to avoid prejudicing your rights.  The unfortunate reality is that many people make poor decisions without legal advice that negatively affect their lives for years to come.
