There is no question that picking up the phone to call a family law attorney is one of the hardest things for a person in a difficult marriage to do. Many reasons, including the stress that one feels in such a painful situation, contribute to the tendency to “put it off.”
However, it is of the utmost importance that you know what all of your options are as soon as you are thinking about making a decision about your situation, whether it be about your safety, child custody, support or any of the other many issues confronting you. The advice you receive early on will help you make the best decisions for you and your family.
Many times, well-meaning friends, colleagues and/or family members offer advice about what to do and how to do it. Unfortunately, they most likely do not have the answers that you need as there is more misinformation out there than real information. Add to that the reality that every situation is different and options are very fact-specific, the advice you may be getting from others most likely is not terribly relevant to your life.
Sitting with an experienced family law attorney for an hour and go over your questions and concerns will most likely prove invaluable to you as you assess how to move forward and address the challenges you are facing. Decisions should only be made when you are well informed and had the time to think about all paths available to you.
