Questions to Ask Before Hiring
a Child Custody Lawyer

It is important that you throw questions to make sure that the attorney you choose can handle your child custody and divorce cases. If hiring a child custody lawyer is a bit overwhelming for you, then you might want to consider asking questions to the lawyer:

  1. How many child custody cases have the lawyer handled?
  2. Among the cases you’ve managed, how many were you able to settle extra-judicially?
  3. Does the lawyer also practice child custody?
  4. Does the lawyer know the counsel of my spouse?
  5. Does the lawyer know any of the local family court judges?
  6. Have you had any experience with negotiating support or settlements?
  7. Are you always on your phone or email?
  8. Are you currently loaded with child custody cases?
