Find a Lincoln Foster Care Attorney in your area

Are You in Need of a Foster Care Attorney?

Foster care parents, children in foster care and even relatives of children in foster care may find themselves in need of legal assistance. Sometimes foster parents seek an attorney when the foster parent is being accused of abuse. Foster children or relatives worried about the children’s well-being may also seek legal help.

How a Foster Care Attorney Can Help

A Lincoln foster care attorney can help you manuever through the foster care system. Whether you or a loved one is in foster care or you wish to help others by becoming a foster parent, knowing and protecting your rights is the first step to take.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it’s possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
