Like most families across the country, those in New Jersey who are currently facing relationship or legal problems may want to keep their circumstances private. However, many people need to reach out for additional support because they’re unable to resolve a specific issue on their own. For instance, a concerned parent who is having trouble getting a co-parent to adhere to the terms of a custody agreement may be at a loss as to how to resolve the problem. A person who intends to marry might need assistance in drafting a prenuptial agreement.
Legal discussions take place in confidential settings
If you schedule a meeting with an experienced family law attorney, you’re entitled to client/attorney confidentiality, which means that what you discuss with an attorney in a private setting remains private. Of course, if you wind up litigating a particular issue, the case will be discussed in court. However, when you hire an attorney, he or she will not share your discussions with others. Knowing that you have a place to go to ask questions or seek recommendations as to what might be the best course of action to resolve a specific problem is less stressful than trying to handle everything on your own.
A family law attorney can provide legal support for these issues
If you’re facing a complex legal issue, it’s a good idea to reach out for support. A family law attorney is well-versed in all aspects of divorce, child custody, grand-parent visitation laws and more. If you’re struggling with a domestic violence situation and believe you should request sole custody, an attorney can walk you through the process. Perhaps you suspect that your spouse is hiding assets in a divorce. This is another issue where experienced legal support can be helpful.
