Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost for a family law attorney?

If you want to hire a family law attorney, keep in mind the average hourly rate ranges from $150 to $350 per hour. However, not all lawyers charge by the hour. When contacting family law attorneys near you, ask to receive cost estimates and an overview of all their fees.

How do I hire a good family law attorney?

If you want to ensure you hire the best family law attorney for your case, be diligent when researching. Compare lawyers near you, read their client reviews and get familiar with their track record. Remember that all family law attorneys must be licensed to practice law.

The last step is to contact several different attorneys to set up consultations, determine whether it’s a good fit and get cost estimates.

Do family law attorneys handle divorce?

Yes, many family law attorneys handle divorce. They also handle a number of other divorce-related issues, including legal separations and child custody cases. Family law attorneys can help clients handle guardianship, establishing paternity, visitation rights, child support, extended family custody terms and other issues important to your family. 

What does a family law attorney do?

A family law attorney specializes in areas like divorce, child custody and guardianship. This can include working on cases that involve visitation rights, parental responsibility, child support, conflicts between parents and custody matters with the extended family.

How do lawyers get paid if they lose a case?

Lawyers typically charge for their time (typically a hourly rate) regardless of whether they win a case. Sometimes, the losing party is ordered to pay the other party’s lawyer fees on top of their own. Some lawyers also work on contingency, meaning they will take a percentage of the awarded amount only if they successfully win the case. 

Before hiring a lawyer, make sure you understand their fee structure.

Reviews for Salt Lake City family law attorneys
Thumbtack Customer
Daniel was hired by my husband and I for a custody and child support case. We were initially Pro-Se and the respondent ended up hiring an attorney herself. That put my husband and I in a position of needing to have representation as well. We previously used ThumbTack for our wedding and figured why not try to retain an attorney in the same way? After two postings for Family Law Assistance and multiple offers from other attorney's we looked into hiring Daniel. Daniel was affordable, experienced in Family Law, and immediately helpful agreeing to met with us on a Saturday to review our next steps. He really got to know us as individuals and our case in it's entirety. We decided to enter into a Motion of Temporary Custody and he represented us in the court room with such tact and professionalism. We felt very comfortable with him as our attorney. He was always available to us by email, text, or phone calls. He was able to get us what we wanted in court. He saw the case was interesting and represented us well. His attention to details was huge because there is so much to Family Law cases they can get very messy. We will continue to use him for Family Law in the future with anything we need in this same case or others. He's a very educated attorney and uses his knowledge to your benefit to argue your position in a positive way! I give him the highest recommendation.
