Attorney for Divorce and Child Support Arrangements

MY BOYFRIEND IS GETTING A DIVORCE CAN U TELL ME IF AND WHEN AN ATTORNEY IS NEEDED IN A DIVORCE? AND HOW TO GO ABOUT FINDING A GOOD AND AFFORDABLE ATTORNEY HE DOESNT MAKE ALOT OF MONEY AND IS NOT SURE HOW MUCH CHILD SUPPORT IS A REASONABLE AMOUNT. SHOULD HE SEEK LEGAL ADVICE OR JUST ASSUME THE AMOUNT SHE HAS SET IS GOOD?

Your boyfriend needs an attorney. He obviously has kids so at a minimum child custody and child support are issues. He needs an attorney from the beginning. An attorney needs to review the specific facts of his case and both your boyfriend’s and the wife’s financial statements. This is a highly complex area and going it alone is like walking through a mine field. Not knowing your boyfriend’s financial situation, all I can suggest is that he call around and talk to potential attorneys to obtain information about their fees, etc.
