Q: Do i need a attorney for child support court? and will they discuss custody and visitation?
A: If you don't have a court order yet you should definitely get an attorney to help you get what you want. The only situation that you would possibly want to go in without one is if you had a complete agreement as to all of the terms of the order for custody already worked out and just needed to get a judge to sign off on it. Even then, it is probably a good idea to have an attorney look over it to make sure you are not missing anything. Most attorneys will give you a free consultation if you call them, so look for a family law attorney in your area and run your situation by them and see what they think. Good luck.
