A family lawyer is a legal practitioner who focuses on issues that have an impact on families. He deals with matters such as divorce proceedings, adoptions, and child custody. Common tasks include drafting custody agreements, wills, prenuptial agreements, and other documents.
Although Canada law allows you to file for a divorce without a legal counsel and even to act as your own lawyer and represent yourself before the court during your divorce trial. But despite this fact, it still better to hire an Ottawa family lawyer.
Here are a few reasons why it is better to seek help from a family lawyer than to go to court alone.
Expertise and Knowledge
Matters pertaining to divorce like the process, pros and cons, child custody, asset division, and child support can easily be learned through research and by reading some articles both online and offline.
Unfortunately, despite reading countless articles regarding the subject, you can’t be as knowledgeable about family law as a lawyer. Family lawyers have spent years studying and practicing in order to learn the ins and outs of the law, not to mention their years of experience in the field.
A lawyer can represent you in court with your best interest in mind. They can explain to you in detail all the possibilities and risks you are about to deal with as soon as the divorce process commences.
The lawyer can also assist you in gathering the information you need to win your claims especially when it comes to marital assets, child support and child custody.
