Costs of a child custody case with a Senior Attorney with the Law Office of Bryan Fagan

When it comes to preparing for a child custody case, there is so much at stake that many people want to know if there are secrets or tricks that can be utilized to prepare for things. When we talk about child custody cases, we are referencing a matter that involves issues regarding children under the age of 18 that are not also connected to a divorce case. If you find yourself concerned about some aspect of your child's life but have never gone through a child custody case before then today's blog post will be a great resource for you. Specifically, I would like to talk with you about what it means to hire a senior attorney with the Law Office of Bryan Fagan to represent you in this type of case. Most importantly, we can discuss the advantages associated with working with one of our attorneys rather than representing yourself.

Where the rubber hits the road, is where you need to see results produced by an attorney that is worth the money that you paid. It is not good enough to simply have some Peace of Mind from having an attorney represent you. The attorney is not there to give you the impression that he or she is capable of producing results for you. Rather, the attorney must be able to produce tangible benefit for you to say that it was worth hiring him or her period the attorneys with the Law Office of Bryan Fagan are aware of this and we would like to utilize this blog post to talk to you about how hiring one of our attorneys to represent you and your children in a child custody case is not only a smart investment but an important one. Make no mistake, there is a great deal at stake when it comes to a child custody case. The last thing you want to do is proceed with a child custody case without representation or even knowledge about the advantages of having a lawyer.

You may be in a situation where you have heard from people in your life about how hiring an attorney is not worth the money. People are all too willing to share stories with you, perhaps, about how hiring a lawyer was a mistake or how a lawyer let them down in some regard in a prior civil or criminal matter that they were involved in. Lawyers are not the most well-liked people in society and as a result sharing negative stories about attorneys is not something that you will struggle to find instances of. With that said, what you need to figure out is whether an attorney is worth the money as far as an investment for your specific situation. After all: just because a neighbor had a bad experience with an attorney that they hired for their bankruptcy does not mean that you shouldn't consider hiring an attorney for your child custody matter. 

On top of that, we need to consider whether it matters what sort of attorney you hire for a child custody case. Do you need to hire A family law attorney or even an experienced family law attorney? Wouldn't any attorney be good enough to represent you in a case like this? What are the advantages to hiring an experienced family law attorney rather than a general practice lawyer or even an attorney who works primarily in areas of the law unrelated to family law? These are other important questions to answer, and we will touch on them today in our blog post.

To be clear, the attorneys with the Law Office of Bryan Fagan are ready, willing, and able to sit down with you for a free-of-charge consultation regarding your child custody scenario.

Risk-taking should not be part of your child custody case strategy

If you are facing a child custody case, then it would be completely normal for you to have major concerns about what to expect and how to prepare for the case. This is especially true if you have never been involved in a legal case before. I can tell you that listening to stories from friends and family and even watching videos online of other people's experiences in child custody cases will not sufficiently prepare you before your case. This is since your family law scenarios and circumstances are unique to your family. As a result, I want you to be prepared to face down whatever it is that is family.

Understand that if you are about to go through a family law or child custody case and you are going to be facing down challenges of all sorts. Do not assume that just because you have been the primary caretaker of your children that this will always be the case. Additionally, do not assume that just because you are your child's mother that you are guaranteed the opportunity to act as your child's primary caretaker moving forward. These are stereotypes and old wives' tales about family law that are not true. The law does not explicitly favor mothers over fathers and primary caretakers of children can see that role changed because of a family law case.

What this should tell you is that every person who goes through a child custody case needs to be prepared and should diligently approach the case. When I say that child custody cases are full of risk this is the reality that you will surely encounter. The question is how well prepared you will be for the case and what you can do to approach the case as a concerned parent. Ultimately, hey court will answer questions about issues surrounding your children based on what is in their best interest. You can look at your case from the same perspective. Just because something is in your best interests as a parent does not mean that a court would agree with you. By the same token, just because something has always been the case does not mean that it always will be the case.

This is where learning about the advantages of hiring an inexperienced family law attorney can truly make a difference for you and your family. Set aside what you have heard about family law cases and instead focus on what you know is true regarding your case. If you are concerned with the possibility of losing time with your children or seeing your relationship with your children be harmed as a result of your family law case then you should seriously consider working with an attorney Who has handled family law cases before. Not only that, but you will also want to consider what it means to work with an attorney who has experienced success working on behalf of Texas families. 

For example, when you are meeting with an attorney who you may want to represent you should ask questions based on your current circumstances. Finding out how many families the attorney has helped and what their circumstances were in comparison to your own is a good place to start. Then, you can listen to the attorneys’ answers and how he or she responds to the questions you ask. This is a great way for you to gain insight into the thought process and problem-solving skills of your lawyer. Listen to the attorney and how he or she answers your question. Do you understand what the attorney is telling you? Does it sound like he or she is telling you information and not just gobbledygook? You can determine a lot from an attorney just by listening to what they say about their experiences and working for other families here in Southeast Texas. 

As it pertains specifically to the senior attorneys with the Law Office of Bryan Fagan you have an opportunity to not only work with diligence conscientious lawyers but ones who know the law, practice it every day, and have achieved results on behalf of the families. It is not enough for your lawyer to simply have a nice office or a fancy headshot on their website. Rather, if I were sitting in your shoes then I would want to find out about the specific results that attorney has earned for their clients. Once you learn more about our attorneys and their backgrounds, I am confident that you will conclude that not only are our attorney's qualified advocates, but they also care a great deal about the clients that we are fortunate to represent.

Do not underestimate just how important it is to have a lawyer who has achieved results in family law cases. The last thing you want to do is hire a lawyer based on a recommendation from a friend or because you like the way their resume looks on the website. Rather, you can and should take the time to get to know, as well as possible, the lawyer that you are considering hiring. Truthfully, this is the most reliable way for you to gain an understanding of that lawyer and to begin to feel more comfortable having him or her represent you. As someone who is not him or herself a lawyer, you probably won't be able to determine without I doubt if your attorney is giving you good advice about the law or your circumstances. However, you almost certainly can determine whether the attorney comes off as experienced or trustworthy.

How will hire one of our attorneys to assist you in your family in your child custody case? When you look around at the world of Texas family law you will find that there are a great number of attorneys out there who would be more than happy to represent you in a case against your Co-parent. Different lawyers and different areas of town, different price points, and different experience levels in a range of other characteristics can sit down with you and tell you about how great they are. 

Where I believe that the attorneys with the Law Office of Bryan Fagan set themselves apart 

First, I believe that the Law Office of Bryan Fagan employs more senior attorneys than any other family law office in Houston or Southeast Texas. This gives us the unique advantage of having an attorney available who not only understands the law but understands you on a personal level. When you decide to hire as a senior attorney with our office there are multiple attorneys who you can choose to work with period this includes working with Mr. Fagan himself. Depending on if your child custody case relates to Child Protective Services, family violence, child custody itself, or even the potential termination of parental rights, I am confident that you will be able to find a lawyer with our office who is not only experienced but has worked with and help people just like you.

Next, when we talk about family law, I want you to understand that our law practice is almost entirely devoted to Texas families going through divorce or child custody scenarios. There is no doubt in my mind that this focus on family law matters for our clients. Our lawyers spend a considerable amount of time thinking about, planning, and executing those plans regarding people going through child custody cases just like you. That collective level of thought and care translates into great success for our clients. That is how we measure success. Not by dollars earned or getting praise from our peers. Rather, it is from the results that are earned on behalf of Texas families just like yours.

Our senior attorneys work with one another on their cases. This is not a situation where you will not know who your attorney is on a week-to-week basis. However, what it does mean is that your attorney can and will work with their peers at our office in preparing for your case. If there is an issue that has been a problem in your family before then you can rest easier knowing that our attorneys have likely encountered that issue previously. We stop at nothing to identify problems, locate solutions, and then develop a plan aimed at solving the problem. We do not shy away from difficult cases, and we want you to know that no matter what you are going through we have a lawyer who has the experience to help.

From the beginning, we want you to understand that we have a strong commitment to our clients and to sharing useful information about family law.

Such is our commitment to answering the questions of our neighbors in this community. Even if we do not end up being the perfect match for you as far as finding an attorney then we want to at least provide you with information that may be able to help you and your family moving forward. Note two family cases are identical and note two families are identical, either. 

Finally, the senior attorneys with the Law Office of Bryan Fagan try to communicate with our clients. If you work with one of our senior attorneys, you will not be put in a situation where you only speak to paralegals or legal assistants. You will have an opportunity to speak to your attorney as frequently as possible. Our lawyers try to return phone calls, provide updates, and generally put themselves in your shoes when it comes to your family law case. Many of our senior attorneys are also parents and we understand this sort of stress and anxiety that comes about because of a family law case.
