A Child Custody Lawyer West Virginia Trusts Offers Tips for Preparing for Your Child Custody Consultation

Child Custody Lawyer West VirginiaIf you have scheduled a consultation with a child custody lawyer from Adams Legal Group, PLLC. in order to discuss child custody concerns, you may be wondering how to prepare for this meeting. While you do not need to prepare in any specific ways beyond meeting any requests we have already outlined, it is understandable that you would want to make the absolute most of our time together. If you are interested in engaging in a bit more preparation in advance of our meeting, here are a few ways in which you can better ensure that our consultation is as fruitful as it can possibly be.

Questions and Concerns

It is often helpful for parents to write down any questions or concerns they have about their specific child custody situation and/or our firm’s representation. Navigating a West Virginia child custody dispute can be a uniquely stressful process. As a result, you likely have a hundred thoughts bouncing around your head at once when you contemplate your situation. Writing down questions you may have about our firm, the dispute resolution process, and your situation generally may help to ensure that you leave your consultation with all your pressing questions answered. Few things are more frustrating than returning home from a meeting only to realize that you forgot to ask an important question or raise a critical clarification.

In addition, the attorney-client relationship tends to function best when everyone is on the same page. If you have questions about the “nuts and bolts” of being one of our clients, please ask your child custody lawyer.  We are happy to discuss the ways in which we handle client communication, fees and other foundational elements of this relationship.


Another helpful step to take when preparing for your consultation is to write down your goals. In general, the family law system evaluates situations related to child custody according to the “best interests of the child” standard. This means that initial child custody determinations, the terms of child custody agreements, and any modification requests relating to existing orders will be evaluated based on this standard. As a parent, you certainly want to advocate on behalf of your child’s best interests.

So, what do these interests look like? And how can our representation help you to make these interests a reality? If we can better understand what you would like us to help you achieve, we can advise you of your legal options and our approach accordingly.
