Why Should Your Attorney Be a Certified Family Law Specialist?

A Certified Family Law Specialist can assist you in many of the truly unique and difficult situations that may arise in an uncommon marriage dissolution. If there are significant marital assets, if you own a business, or if a parent has physical or mental health issues, these can all involve a very challenging divorce. Family law can be one of the most difficult and complex areas in which to practice.

As a Certified Family Law Specialist, your attorney will have gone through an extensive period of case work, tests and certification by the state. Only a very few family law attorneys are able to achieve the certification by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.

Having the extensive experience and knowledge which is required, brings a considerable advantage to your child custody case. Many people do not realize all of the complex regulations and case law which goes into determining family law matters. If you are going to be involved in a court ordered custody evaluation, your attorney who is a Certified Specialist can better explain to you the tests and standards which will be applied to your case.

In addition to extensive training regarding family law in such matters as custody and alimony, your Specialist Family Law Attorney will be able to advise you and guide you on business matters as well. Your lawyer should be able to explain financial statements and agreements to you in a clear and concise manner. Finding and retaining a Certified Family Law Specialist may be the smartest thing you can do in the early stages of your divorce and child custody case. Having an expert on your side can help to make the judge's final decision be more favorable to your side.
