Hiring an Attorney

For many new parents, the legal world is foreign, confusing and expensive. However, there are certain things that should be considered.   I am not a lawyer, so these are only tips I’ve found helpful.  You need to consult an attorney for anything specific – laws vary by state and change constantly.

Here are questions you may ask an attorney before engaging services:

  1. What kind of experience/specialty do you have?
  2. What kind of response time should we expect when we call with questions?
  3. What are your billing rates? Will your services be based upon a fixed fee for the project or hourly?
  4. Will I be billed monthly or upon completion of the project?
  5. How does the process work from beginning to end, and what is the timetable?
  6. Are there any expenses for which we will be responsible?
