Family Law in Bennettsville and Dillon
Family Court – usually the first thing that comes to mind when people hear those words is divorce. Practicing law in Family Court is actually so much more than that; it is an ever-changing and constantly evolving process that touches the deepest and most sensitive parts of a person’s life. Family law encompasses the areas of child custody, child support, alimony, and adoption, as well as juvenile justice.
When faced with an action in family Court, it is essential that you hire an attorney with whom you are completely comfortable- someone you can trust with your family, your finances, and your future. Sure, you could go forward without an attorney, but you will not have anyone looking out for your interests. This is not the time to represent yourself or be cavalier, even in an uncontested divorce. Once the documents are signed, it is difficult, if not impossible, to change the terms. With new procedures and mandatory filings, it is important to hire a lawyer that can navigate these uncertain waters for you. .
