What we are going to discuss today is the importance of getting the best possible Jacksonville family lawyer if and when the time comes that you need such services. This will be a huge boon to the success of getting what you want out of a legal battle vs trying to figure it all out yourself or perhaps even worse, hiring someone that is unqualified.
We will also be discussing how to go about in obtaining the ideal legal representation.
For starters, the importance of getting the right attorney cannot be overstated. These are matters that will have a strong, direct impact upon the rest of your life in many of its different facets.
A big area affected by this is of course money. Who gets what and why? Did you both work or was one of you the ‘bread winner’ while the other one stayed home and watched the children? Who gets the house and who will have to move out and find a new place to live? What about cars, properties, stocks, shared bank accounts etc etc etc?
And of course the other main area affected will be, if you have them, children. Who will get custody of them and will it be shared? If it’s shared, how will you split the schedule up so that both parents get to see their children and the kids themselves don’t suffer needlessly throughout this process.
Maybe you have gotten to the point where you hate your current husband or wife, but don’t make your kids suffer because of that as they are innocent bystanders in all of this.
So at the very least learn to be civil for their sake with your (soon to be ex) wife or husband. Having the best lawyer to help you with your case will make this go as smoothly and quickly as humanly possible. This will minimize or hopefully eliminate any negative fallout on your kids due to the separation.
A good way to find the best legal aid is to ask around of your family, friends, and coworkers to see who they have used with success in the past.
You can also view and critique their business website to see what kind of feeling you get from it.
And many will offer free consultations that will give you the opportunity to talk with someone on their staff to see if they will be the perfect fit for you or if you should keep searching for someone else.
To finish up, let’s discuss WHEN you should be doing this. If you are even thinking about leaving your spouse, take action right now, as in this very second. This is one thing that you don’t want to procrastinate on or be caught behind the eight ball.
If you do, your chances of failure are high and that potentially equates to loss of money, loss of children, and loss of home.
So I strongly encourage you to be proactive about this, it’s just that important and you only get one shot to do things right.
