Horrible lawyer. Very unprofessional. Treated my family and I like we were idiots. Did not do things we requested to prevent further damage to the estate we were fighting for. Was never in a hurry to do anything except collect money. He was rude and it seemed like he was working for the person we were up against. Didn't even remember who we were several times after his retainer fee was paid. Introduced himself and said nice to meet you the first few times we met with him. Never returned phone calls and it was difficult to find a time to meet with him. He was too busy taking hunting and fishing trips. I personally had to do a lot of the work myself. Work that would have been easy for a lawyer to get. He fired us when he was told we pay him to represent us. I highly suggest any other person to represent you. After the fact I learned his license has been suspended in the past for misconduct.
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
