Child Custody in Kansas
When parents of minor children split up, they need to reach important decisions regarding child custody, visitation schedules and child support. Kansas child custody lawyers can help both parents negotiate a mutually agreeable parenting plan and then present it to the court for approval. If you and your child's other parent cannot reach agreement, the court will make these decisions for you.
Questions to Ask When Hiring a Kansas Child Custody Lawyer
Before hiring a child custody attorney, schedule a preliminary meeting, also known as an initial consultation, with each lawyer in Kansas you're considering.
The preliminary meeting is a great opportunity to tell the attorney a bit about your situation, get the lawyer's feedback and get a feel for whether you want to work with the lawyer. Come to the meeting with a prepared list of questions you'd like to ask the family law attorney. Focus on topics that will help you make a hiring decision.
Typical questions to ask include:
- How long have you practiced child custody law in Kansas? Do you only practice family law or do you represent other types of clients, too?
- What kind of child custody arrangement can I reasonably expect to receive? Are there any factors that will work in my favor or against me?
- How much can I expect to pay or receive in child support in Kansas?
- How do you charge for your services? Can you estimate my total legal cost—including fees and expenses—to resolve my custody issue?
