Family Law Attorney in Leawood, Kansas

A family law problem can be overwhelming, and there’s a good chance you need help throughout the process. After weighing all of the factors in your family law case, you may decide you want an attorney — one who will truly be on your side.

Handling Emotions During Your Case

Whether it’s a potential divorce, modification of child support or parenting time, or allegations of abuse, it can feel like a crisis. You need to file documents with the court, serve papers on the other side, and set hearings — and that’s on top of dealing with all the emotions swirling around during this difficult time. Before you hire a lawyer, you should ask: “How can they help me?”

Some attorneys sound like gladiators or mercenaries. They live for the fight and think settling is the coward’s way out. But, if there is an easier way, will they pursue a peaceful solution just as hard? If the other side makes a reasonable offer, will they help or hurt you in their response? Meanwhile, other attorneys may tell you that trial is for fools and settlement is the only wise choice. But will you feel comfortable asking them simple questions, or will they make you feel like you are disturbing them? If the other side refuses all reasonable attempts to settle, will they help you at trial or have you make a bad deal just to avoid court?

Kinds of Family Law Cases

Family law cases aren’t limited to divorce cases. While they can involve issues between two spouses, they often also concern parents, children, and other relatives. The most common family law cases include: 

  • Marriage dissolution or divorce
  • Paternity and/or child custody
  • Domestic violence and restraining orders
  • Guardianship and visitation
  • Child support and alimony
  • Spousal support
  • Parental rights and adoptions
  • Name changes

While some of these cases are simple and straightforward, many of them can quickly become complex and emotionally charged. The important thing to remember — whether you’re going through a divorce or you’re on the verge of losing visitation rights — is that you aren’t alone.
