If you can’t decide whether you need to hire a child custody lawyer, then you should know that fighting a case for the custody of your child requires more than just grit and determination. Custody cases can be emotional and difficult and the likelihood of success in the courtroom can be increased by hiring a attorney who has experience in this area of the law.

Here we discuss six big reasons to hire a child custody lawyer. These reasons will convince you that doing so is indeed the best idea if you want to fight for and win the custody of your child.

1 - Complications in the Case

Sometimes when parties separate, their initial thought is that things are going to work out and that they will be able to resolve their differences easily. However, more often than not a case quickly complicates and the parties differences cannot be dealt with on your own. For instance, you realize that your ex has changed her mind about sharing joint custody or the agreed upon time share or financial considerations become the basis for threats with regard to your child’s best interests. These complications are tricky and you need to hire a lawyer to take care of such cases.

2 - International Boundaries

If you and your ex reside in different states or different countries then it’s a wise move to hire a lawyer to present your case in court. You can learn about the laws that govern the cases pertaining to child custody, but seeking professional counsel is highly recommended for any inter-jurisdictional cases.

3 - Child’s Safety

If you have reason to believe that your child’s life might be in danger then besides calling 911, you should also seek legal advice. The intervention of law enforcement when appropriate may be necessary, but when utilized improperly can cause more harm than good. And, if there is truly an immediate threat, applying for, and obtaining an emergency protection order or restraining order can be simplified by your attorney.

4 - If Your Ex Does Not Allow to See Your Child

If your ex partner seems to be denying your right to visit your child, or keeps on canceling the scheduled visit at the last minute then you should consider seeking the help of a child custody lawyer. These signs usually indicate that the case is becoming more complicated. Same course of action is advised if your ex tries to limit your contact with your child.

5 - Changes in Circumstances

If there’s a change in either your circumstances or your ex’s, then you should consult a lawyer. These changes can be related to your ex getting married again, or maybe relocating to different state or country. These matters require professional involvement and cannot be handled on your own.

6 - Court Orders You to Get Treatment

If the court has ruled you inappropriate to get the custody of your child and has ordered you to enroll yourself in anger management classes, drug or alcohol treatment or some parenting classes, then the best way to handle the situation is to hire a child custody lawyer.

These reasons to hire a child custody lawyer are significant. If you’re in search of seeking legal counsel related to the custody of your child then contact Knoebel & Vice, PLLC at you earliest and seek the professional legal counsel of our experienced lawyers to improve the outcome of your case.
