Southport, NC asked in Child Custody and Family Law for North Carolina

Q: What is a likely way to obtain a pro bono family custody lawyer?

I have a stable home and everything my child needs with his own room wardrobe toys and all. His father is keeping him from me solely on the grounds that I have a new man in my life. I dont wantto further tramatize my son more by taking off with him suddenly. Id like to go about it the proper way in hopes for simple equality as parents.

A: Custody cases are often complex and a lot of work so you will likely be hard pressed to find an attorney willing to do it pro bono. That said, it never hurts to shop around and ask. If you can not find a pro bono attorney , you may at least be able to find an attorney willing to work with you regarding a lesser rate or possibly accepting payments. Best of luck.
