Jerseygirl says, "I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Qadeer and his team on three separate issues and I've been pleasantly surprised with the amount of dedication and hard work they've put in my case all three times. I applied for my green card renewal a year ago and I was scared of the outcome as I had a criminal history, but Mr. Qadeer and his team put together a great application package and the process went smoothly. I worked with them to get my criminal records expunged recently and yet again my case was handled in a very professional way and I am extremely satisfied with how things went. I was punctually updated on every single mail that was received/delivered and about the status of my case. I recently applied for my naturalization and I had no doubt that I'd get through the process smoothly because I knew I was in good hands. Today, I am a US citizen all thanks to this amazing team. I highly recommend Omar Qadeer's Law Firm to anyone who's looking for legal help regarding the concerned matters. Their rates are very reasonable and I find it very convenient that they offer payment plans. All in all, I'm very pleased with Mr. Qadeer and his team - especially Andre, who is very thorough and has always pointed me in the right direction with his advice. Can't thank the whole team enough for their hard work, dedication and for making things so much easy for me." Read more

Your Family Law Attorney questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much is a family law attorney?

A family law attorney charges $200 to $500 per hour, depending on the location, their experience level, and the services included. Some charge a flat fee for simple services, like drawing up basic, uncontested divorce papers.

Contested divorces, custody cases, or asset arrangements often take longer and cost more to settle. These cases often go to trial and require the attorney to spend time to prepare evidence and arguments, which increases the final cost.

Most firms charge by the hour, but some have contingency fees instead. This means that they receive a percentage of any money awarded at the end of the case and won't charge you anything until then. Some attorneys charge a $500 to $5,000 retainer fee, which is paid in advance.

What is a family law attorney?

A family law attorney handles cases that involve domestic issues and family relationships. These attorneys advocate for their clients and mediate in complex cases. Common court cases or specialties might include:

  • Divorce
  • Prenups
  • Child custody
  • Child support or alimony
  • Adoption
  • Guardianship
  • Domestic violence
  • Child abuse
  • Restraining orders

Do family law attorneys manage divorce?

Yes, family law attorneys manage divorce cases. However, a family law attorney can only represent one spouse during the divorce. Uncontested divorces are relatively simple, especially when the couple is childless, and often only include drawing up paperwork and dividing property.

Contested divorces are more difficult, expensive, and complicated because there are more negative emotions involved. An attorney helps mediate during disputes about custody, child support, alimony, assets, and debts.

Do I need a family law attorney?

Simple court filings or name changes can be handled without a family law attorney. Otherwise, it may be best to have an experienced attorney on your side for important cases involving divorce, custody, adoption, or abuse. Without an attorney, the case may take longer or have an undesirable outcome.

How do I prepare to meet with a family law attorney?

Prepare to meet with a family law attorney by gathering the appropriate documents. These will vary depending on the case but typically include:

  • Birth certificates
  • Bank statements
  • Tax returns
  • Employment information
  • Mortgage data

  • Consider the distance between their office and your home.
  • Get a written estimate before casework starts.
  • Avoid making large payments up front.

After asking questions, hire the best family law attorney in your area.

What questions should I ask family law attorneys?

When searching for attorneys near you, consider the following questions:

  • How long have you been practicing family law?
  • When did you pass the bar?
  • How many similar cases have you worked on?
  • Is your current caseload light enough to take me on?
  • Based on my situation, how long do you think it will take to settle my case?
  • Do you have a flat rate or hourly rates?
  • Will you give me an estimate or contract in writing?

Excellent group - I felt comfortable working with this office. They handled my divorce matter. There wasn't too much to fight over, but I still liked how the lawyer explained everythig and I knew what to expect.

Mr. Sico was such a great lawyer. He was honest and listened to me. He told me what I could persue and what my rights were. He answered all my questions and even told me that he would follow up on things that he didn't have an answer to immediately (instead of just making it up as he went). He helped me get my life sorted. I can't thank him enough!

After inheriting a logo design project, Go Logo Now took every bit and piece of an account and has turned it into a great method to complete the plan. The team has designed the logo, website, and mobile app. The team has conducted a lot of meetings back and forth allowing them to identify what needs to be done. Although it is too early to identify key metrics, Go Logo Now successfully completed the project. They've been complimented for their amazing communication.
