How do you know if you need a San Diego Family Law Attorney?
Family Law can be confusing. There are so many different areas that are contained within Family Law, as shown above. You may be surprised that Family Law, although usually between people who are related by marriage or blood, can also include those who are not related in any way except a casual relationship or something more distant. Because these types of cases are usually emotionally-charged, having a San Diego Family Law attorney to help you navigate any legal process is advised.
For those who are seeking divorce or annulment, you may think you and your partner can work things out without turning to legal counsel. If you are able to do this, that is wonderful. However, what is most often the case is that hurt feelings generally make it necessary to seek counsel in the case of a divorce. It is particularly necessary if there is a child custody dispute.
Those who are in the midst of domestic violence may not know that obtaining a lawyer is needed. The truth is you need qualified, experienced counsel to represent you and protect your interests. The right San Diego Family Law attorney will be able to help you through the legal process and provide answers to any questions you might have.
Is someone you love nearing the end of their life? Perhaps they have simply decided they need to get a will or amend the will they already have. Our lawyers are able to help with these cases. You may need assistance with selecting an Executor or another aspect of Elder Law. Our San Diego Family Law attorney is knowledgeable concerning these aspects of Family Law, as well.
