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?

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.

I worked with Maria Testa of Testa and Pagnanelli from October 2015 to March 2017 for my custody proceedings in Philadelphia. From my initial consultation, I was convinced that I had made the right choice. Maria was knowledgeable, calm, and very sympathetic. Being a mother, herself, she really understood how to combine the human side of these proceedings with the legal side. In addition, Maria's communication and organization is unparalleled. She would reply to every email I sent (and there were many!) within hours if not minutes. No question was too small. She truly understood my side of these proceedings, and, moreover, knew how to turn my hopes into actionable motions that gave results. I would recommend Maria Testa and Testa & Pagnanelli to anyone and want to thank Maria for her dedication to me and my daughter.
