40823066_S.jpgIn the eyes of most family law courts, it is.

When family disputes arise, legal advice can be necessary

37454648_S.jpgEvery family deals with problems. They fight, disagree and may not even like each other all that much. Many people prefer to keep these issues private and don't exactly want to go discussing them in public. In these situations, people may think that they can't or shouldn't talk to anyone about their concerns; asking for help may seem like the last thing they want to do.

What will discovery discover?

Why you probably don't want DIY divorce

13725420_S.jpgIf you and your spouse have decided to divorce, you know money is going to be an issue. Both the cost of filings the divorce paperwork in the courthouse in Columbia and the need to split up your marital assets. Perhaps you figure that if you handle the legal documents and avoid hiring an attorney, you can at least save that cost in the process.

34842907_S (1).jpgIt is understandable that if you have never been through a divorce, you may not have a firm idea of what to expect. You have read books, seen movies or talked friends and relative who have been divorced, but none of that will likely prepare you for your experience of divorce.

Open up to your family law attorney

Thumbnail image for 21175518_S.jpgNew family law clients have lots of mixed emotions when they hire an attorney. Most are not ready to go through a family law case to begin with. They would rather save their marriage or settle the matter outside of court. Still, many must deal with their family law matter even though they do not want to.

When should I consult a second attorney in my family law case?

32408354_S.jpgWhen you are faced with a divorce or family law matter, it can be a challenging and frustrating process. Your attorney is charged with leading you through your case. When you put your hope and faith in your attorney, you expect them to pull through for you.
