What questions should I ask when searching for a good child custody lawyer?
What we did was I (the step mom) called about 8 lawyers, I told them a quick 30 second synopses of the case and asked them how much it would be to get started. At that point about 5 of them said they wouldn’t take a man wanting custody of a kid in georgia kind of case. 3 told me they would like to hear more, but that they have never heard of a man winning. And 2 seemed honestly concerned for the child’s well being, so we interviewed those 2 and one stood out hands down.
That is how we chose. A friend of mine went to court on family court day and looked at how all the lawyers interacted with the Judge and the court, and liked one so he asked for his card, and hired him.
