Are you unsure whether or not you need to hire a
Wellesley 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 Sopanaro Barach Bingham LLPdiscuss
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
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.
