第二个意见

You want to do the right thing for your North Carolina family law 和 mg摆脱游戏免费试玩 case. 第二意见可能是件好事. 在表现的过程中, you may become dissatisfied with your attorney or simply want a second opinion, 就像你对医生那样. A second opinion is always in order, 和 your current attorney should welcome a second opinion. However, you can obtain a second opinion without telling your existing attorney, if you wish. You should be comfortable 和 confident in your attorney at this most trying time in your life.

在你的案子开始的时候, it may be difficult to know how complex or how simple your case will be.  This also may be the first time you have used a lawyer for anything as major as a mg摆脱游戏免费试玩, 监护权或家庭法律很重要.  也, finding an attorney that is compatible with both your personality, communication style 和 the needs of your case might be difficult, 所以不要因为寻求第二意见而感觉不好.

Make sure you get a second opinion on a North Carolina family law, 监护权, mg摆脱游戏免费试玩, equitable distribution matter or for an appeal from someone who is experienced 和 competent in your particular family law issues. Ask the Second Opinion attorney: “how many cases like mine have you h和led? How many have your h和led in the particular County where your case is pending?”

看看第二意见律师的网站. Ask yourself some questions: Is your attorney a North Carolina Family Law Specialist, 哪一个, 在任何情况下都需要一个复杂的第二意见, 会是一个好的选择吗? Is there content on the Second Opinion Attorney’s website dealing with the area of family law, 你需要第二个人的意见? Do you think you would enjoy working with this particular attorney?

After you have selected the family law attorney for the Second Opinion, 为与律师的会面做好准备, 如果可能的话. 带上所有的法庭文件, as no attorney can give you a valid opinion on the status of a lawsuit without seeing the underlying pleadings (paperwork) in the lawsuit. If you have signed an agreement with the opposing party, you need to bring that as well. If property is the issue, bring with you the property division affidavit, if this has been done. Bring settlement offers, if offers 和 counteroffers have been made.

放松点,准备开会. Be prepared to explain what the “gripe” is about your current attorney. 是沟通方式吗? Is it confrontation style (not aggressive enough or too aggressive)? Is it that you have formed a lack of confidence in the attorney? These three questions form the basis of many reasons for 第二个意见.

It is difficult to give a Second Opinion on whether a court determination needs to be appealed without the following: 1) the signed court order; 2) the transcript of the hearings; 3) the exhibits for the hearing. Perhaps you will want to start the process of the Second Opinion without these items, 但至少试着让法院签署命令. 为什么? 好吧, written court orders may differ or seem to differ from what the judge said in court, 和 the basis of the appeal will be an appeal of the written order in most cases.

要有耐心, as Rome was not built in a day; your objectives will not likely be able to be realized in a day either.

If you do change attorneys, make sure you get all file items from your prior attorney. 没有紧急的问题, give your prior attorney 7 to 10 business days notice to make your file available to your new attorney.

I walked into the Woodruff Family Law Office with a huge mess, a few years in the making. Carolyn Woodruff was able to make sense of my file 和 build a strong case in my support. When she is involved, there is no question of timeliness 和 efficiency. Carolyn’s no-nonsense, straight-forward approach never leaves you guessing as to what is going on. She listens well, is smart, 和 runs a law firm full of support 和 hospitality. B.P.
