Q. Looking for a lawyer to represent my daughter. It's a child custody case where the father is a narcissistic
A: You are well served with an attorney experienced in the area of family law. I am happy to have an intake specialist contact you if you wish to provide your contact information. Message our firm if you are interested in a free initial consultation. This is a common characteristic in many of our child custody matters. However, it is important to discuss all of the facts and circumstances with an experienced attorney ASAP.
Q. hello my name is norma i am looking to get a divorce and was wondering what steps i need to take to start that process
A: Most attorneys will provide a free initial consultation. Find a divorce lawyer in your area and contact him or her to set up a consultation.
Q. i want to hire a NY family court lawyer, but he is employed as the court attorney. Is this a conflict or problem?
A: It is unclear from your question whether or not the attorney you wish to hire would have a conflict of interest problem. The best thing to do would be to ask the attorney directly if he or she would have a conflict of interest in the event he or she took your case.
