Whether you’ve been victimized by domestic violence, or you’re seeking divorce or a solution to your child custody and visitation issues, you likely have a ton of questions. How should you approach your case? What you should you do, say and think to get best results?
There’s no way to solve these questions on your own. You need help — ideally, from an experienced South Carolina family law attorney. But how do you maximize that relationship? Here are some time-tested tips.
Make your communication with your attorney as efficient as possible. Do this to conserve resources — to pay as little as possible for maximum results. Do it also to feel more in control.
Create a running list of questions for your attorney. Be comprehensive. Keep track of the answers you get, so you don’t waste your time (or your lawyer’s time) asking things twice. Fire them all off at once to your lawyer, who can then answer them in a systematic way.
To make the most of this process, keep a pad or paper (or cell phone app) available nearby, always. That way, any time your mind comes up with stray thoughts about your family law case (like 4:00am, when you wake from a dream, or in your car, while you’re stuck in traffic), you can jot down the key ideas. As the old Chinese saying goes, “the palest ink is clearer than the sharpest memory.”
