Client Success Stories

What Qualities Should I Look for in a Family Lawyer?

When selecting a family lawyer, you should look for several qualities to ensure that your case is handled competently and professionally. Here are some key qualities to consider when deciding on the best attorney to represent you:

  • Experience – Make sure a lawyer has plenty of experience in family law cases and an excellent track record. You want someone who knows the ins and outs of divorce, child custody battles, alimony matters, and more.
  • Communication Skills – Good communication between you and your attorney is key to ensuring a successful outcome. A lawyer should be able to clearly and confidently explain the legal process to you, as well as answer any questions or concerns you may have throughout.
  • Compassion – Being in the midst of a family law case can be an emotional time for everyone involved. It is important that an attorney understands this and respects your feelings. A good lawyer will show compassion towards all parties involved in the case and remain professional at all times.

At Barnds Law LLC, we possess all of those qualities and more - always utilizing them to make our clients’ experiences better and to get results!


Do I Need a Lawyer for an Uncontested Divorce?

The short answer is yes; you usually need a lawyer to represent you in an uncontested divorce. Even though both parties are in agreement and the divorce process may seem straightforward, there are still legal implications that must be followed for the divorce to be valid.

A lawyer can ensure that all paperwork is filed correctly with the court, advise on any state-specific laws or regulations related to your case, provide assistance with asset and debt division negotiations, ensure that all required documents are signed and submitted on time, and make sure all terms of the settlement are fair and final. Though it may seem to be more cost-effective to pursue an uncontested divorce without hiring a lawyer, it is important to remember that entering into a legally binding agreement without the help of a legal professional may not be in your best interest. You could potentially stand to lose much more than what you would save in legal fees if you do not hire a divorce attorney!

Frequently Asked Questions
Are There Any Alternatives to Going to Court in a Family Law Case?

Families should have access to different alternative paths besides court proceedings. Court proceedings can often be time-consuming and expensive for all parties involved. That’s why our firm is devoted to providing a range of alternative dispute resolution services, including mediation, arbitration, and collaborative divorce methods. Mediation is an excellent approach utilized by our law firm when two parties are willing to negotiate with each other respectfully. During this process, both parties come together with a neutral third-party mediator who assists them in reaching an agreement on the contested issues of their case. In Arbitration, an independent arbitrator hears each side before making a binding decision about the contested issues in your case. Collaborative divorce involves both parties working together with trained professionals such as lawyers and financial advisors to create solutions that work for everyone involved in the situation.

How Long Will My Divorce Take?

The process of getting a divorce can be daunting. We strive to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible for our clients. When it comes to how long a divorce will take, there is no exact science. The length of time for a divorce depends on several factors, such as the complexity of financial and custody arrangements, or whether parties can agree on all matters in disputes. Each state has different laws regarding divorce proceedings which could affect the timeline of a case. With decades of collective experience handling divorces, we use our skills to ensure that you are both informed about your rights while striving to achieve a swift resolution that meets your needs.

How Long Will it Take Me to Adopt?

The adoption process is lovely and can bring your family a lot of happiness. Adoption may take several months or even years.

What Are The Different Types Of Divorce?

There are several types of divorce, including no-fault divorce, fault-based divorce, and contested divorce. No-fault divorce is when neither spouse is blamed for the breakdown of the marriage, while a fault-based divorce is when one spouse blames the other for the end of the marriage. A contested divorce is when the parties cannot agree on issues related to the divorce, such as property division or child custody

How Is Child Custody Determined?

Child custody is determined by the court based on the best interests of the child. Factors considered include the child's age, health, and emotional well-being, as well as each parent's ability to care for the child and their relationship with the child. In some cases, the child may also have input on custody arrangements.

What Is Child Support, And How Is It Determined?

Child support is the amount of money that one parent pays to the other for the financial support of their child. The amount of child support is usually determined by state guidelines that take into account the income of both parents, the number of children, and other factors such as medical expenses and childcare costs. The court will also consider the child's needs, such as education, health care, and extracurricular activities when setting the amount of child support.

What Is The Difference Between Legal Separation And Divorce?

Legal separation is a legal status that allows a married couple to live apart while remaining legally married. In a legal separation, the couple can still divide assets and debts and make decisions about child custody and support. However, they cannot remarry unless they get a divorce. Divorce is the legal process that ends a marriage and allows both parties to remarry if they choose to do so. In a divorce, the court will also make decisions about asset and debt division, child custody, and support.
