Should You Talk to a Child Custody Lawyer?

Here at Jones, Childers, Donaldson & Webb, PLLC, our child custody lawyers know that your family is important to you, and we want to help you do what’s best for it. Sometimes–and in fact more often than many people suppose–doing what’s best for your family may involve speaking to a lawyer. In this article, our team will go over a few situations in which you should definitely consult a child custody lawyer in order to secure the best possible outcome.

  • Your Family Circumstances Change- One situation in which you’ll want to consult a child custody lawyer as soon as possible is if the circumstances surrounding your child custody arrangement have changed significantly. For instance, if you or your ex remarries or starts cohabiting with a new partner, if one of you is moving, or if your ex used to be cooperative but has since turned combative, contact us as soon as possible.
  • Your Ex is Angling for Sole Custody- Another situation that warrants a conversation with a child custody lawyer is your ex trying to gain sole custody after seeming to agree for a shared arrangement. If you have reason to believe that your ex may be trying to pull custody away from you, we recommend hiring a lawyer as soon as possible.
  • Your Kids are in Danger- A third situation in which you should absolutely get a child custody lawyer involved is if you suspect that your children are not safe in their current arrangement. Contact a lawyer right away to begin taking steps to remove them from that situation.
