The Importance of Hiring the Right Family Law Attorney.

Your life is in turmoil and the decision on whom to hire as a family attorney is a very important one.  There are so many variables involved.  Maybe you are not married, but you want to establish the right plan for raising your kids.  Perhaps one of the parties involved has changed jobs and needs to relocate; moving the children is governed by very complex statutes.

Each side of these issues has its own version of the facts.  If you do not show up with equal intensity and proper representation you could get buried in a Washington State Family Court.  The court can only know what is in your court file.  The judges have no way to know what has not been presented to them.  The more clear, and less emotional, the factual presentation is, then the better for your case.  

Perhaps you will be too upset or anxious to clearly organize the facts the courts need for these vital decisions.  That is why people involved in divorce proceedings turn to Spokane family attorney Craig Mason.  Attorney Mason will represent your side with knowledge, energy, and above all, expertise in matters of Washington State family law.  Hire the right divorce attorney!  Arrange for a meeting at the Spokane office of Craig Mason by calling (509) 443-3681.

How to Avoid Family Law Litigation

Many of you hear of horrible temporary orders and emotionally draining trials in divorce.  And that can happen, and Mr. Mason has fought such trials when it was absolutely necessary, and he has won more than his fair share. Except when “war” is absolutely necessary, a divorce should be seen as a diplomatic process of drafting a “peace treaty.”

Mr. Mason prefers to keep a family law case legally calm, even if the participants are emotionally hot.  It is better for the kids if the parents do not fight.  Children “feel” the heat, even if parents are trying to hide it.  It is healthier if the emotional temperature drops as soon as possible.  You will never stop being parents.  It does not “end” when the children turn 18. So, it is best to start cooperation now.

Any property to be divided is going to be divided by pretty clear legal rules. While, certainly, the judges have discretion, the usual cause of a property trial is unrealistic expectations on one side, and/or an attorney who will not quash those unreasonable expectations.

Good legal advice saves you emotional and financial resources.  Getting you to your next stage of life in good mental and financial health is a major goal of Craig Mason.  Call Mason Law today for the family law attorney you need at (509) 443-3681.

The Shelf-Life of an Ex Parte Order.

Ex Parte orders are usually temporary such as a restraining order or one for temporary custody.  In the state of Washington those orders are good for only a fortnight…14 days.  Having said that, it could still be the most excruciating two weeks of your life if you are unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end.

If you are served with an Ex Parte order, that notice of a full hearing is also served with your restraining order on the first or second page.  In most cases, you may be best served spending that time preparing for the hearing rather than just reacting to it without taking the proper legal action necessary.

If you wait until after the hearing to see an attorney that may be very detrimental to your cause.  If you have been the recipient immediately contact Craig Mason.  Attorney Mason is a Spokane area Ex Parte order defense attorney.  When you need a strong, thorough family attorney in Eastern Washington contact Craig Mason at (509) 443-3681.

Don’t Be in Such a Hurry!

Everyone seems to be in a hurry to settle a property claim after being in an accident.  Insurance companies are more than happy to do so.  Vital evidence is lost forever when this happens.  Once you accept payment the story ends and only one party is completely satisfied...guess who that is?  You’re right…the insurance company!

The insurance companies are in even more of a rush to settle your injury claim.  They "make light" of your injuries, especially "soft tissue" injuries, as if ligaments and tendons are optional!
Many injuries will not appear for months after a collision, especially if you had one injury distracting you, and as it heals up the more significant, long-term, injury will be more noticeable.

The general public would not know any better, and so generally, they accept the first offer thinking that is the only one they will ever receive.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  By hiring aggressive representation of your own you find out otherwise.

To protect yourself, you should consult Spokane property claim car accident attorney, Craig Mason.  Attorney Mason has been protecting Spokane area residents from making hasty decisions for decades and he may help you as well.  Give him a call and schedule a meeting at his office by calling (509) 443-3681.
