You don’t need a lawyer

Wrong!!!

I recently ran some numbers (much to the annoyance of She Who Runs The Numbers), about how much of my family law revenue comes from post-judgement matters. By this I am talking about change of custody, visitation, child-support, etc. The number are running close to 40%

Many of these post-judgment matters could have been avoided if competent counsel had spent the time in the original divorce to get things right. When there is no lawyer in the underlying case the overworked domestic judges will often let agreements that as loose as goose S__t get by. Six months, a year, two years later . . . Here I come to pick up the pieces.

If you have children, retirement accounts, a business or retirement accounts, you need a lawyer!

I don’t care if you have an agreement or not. At minimum, you need to have a lawyer look the agreement over to see if there are immediate problems, or matters that will probably arise under the current agreement. Lawyers who do a lot of family law have seen a lot of cases over the years. You have, if you are unlucky in love, seen a couple. Give the person who has seen hundreds a chance.

It’s not insurance, but its close. While no lawyer can anticipate all future problems, but will almost always think of more than you!
