Are you unsure whether or not you need to hire a Framingham child custody attorney for your case? While you have the right to represent yourself, some child custody cases require the depth of legal knowledge only an experienced family lawyer can provide. Below, the legal team at Barach Law Group LLC discuss three signs it might be time to consult an attorney.
1.You believe your children are in danger If you feel your children are in immediate danger, you should call the police and consider filing a restraining order against your ex. Once your children are removed from the situation, talk to an attorney who can help gather evidence proving your ex is unfit for custody of your children. 2.Your ex won’t let you see your children Does your ex cancel plans for visitation at the last minute? Are they actively trying to limit contact with your children? This type of behavior can have lasting negative influences on your relationship with your children. If you are experiencing a situation like this, you should retain a child custody lawyer. 3.Your case is complex Do you and your ex living in different jurisdictions? Are you and your ex unable to agree on legal and joint custody? Are they pushing to convince the court that you are unfit for shared custody of your children? Alternatively, is your current life situation changing in a drastic way that can affect your child’s life? Are you remarrying or moving in with a significant other? If any of these situations sound like yours, you should consider working with an attorney to help guide you through the child custody modification process. It is especially necessary to contact an attorney when moving in with or marry a new spouse as you and your new spouse will be scrutinized heavily before a court will allow shared custody over your children.
