The family lawyer in Mérida is in charge of regulating, mediating and managing the legal processes that are linked to family relationships. If it is a topic that catches your attention, it is important that you know what a lawyer does in family matters so that you can define if it is an area that aligns with your interests. 


There are various matters in which a family lawyer intervenes, which are all those that influence the rights and obligations of the members of a family. 

Among the most common matters that a lawyer handles in this area are: 

  • Marriage procedures 

  • Prenuptial Agreements 

  • divorces

  • Adoptions  

  • Maintenance  

  • Child Support, Custody, and Visitation  

  • Paternity

  • Inheritances and wills

Just to mention a few, since there are other types of cases that a family law attorney can handle, but they deal with less common issues, therefore, their work is not only limited to these types of matters.

How can lawyers in Merida advise and guide me?

They can be oriented towards a private profile, as an advisor and representative of natural and/or legal persons, or have a public profile linked to the government and public administration. In most of the legal systems of the various countries, for the exercise of this profession, university studies in Law are required —law degree—, to be registered in a bar association in Mérida or to have a State authorization to practice. Not only is it necessary to know the Law in strictly technical terms, but it is also necessary to acquire a series of skills that will be necessary in the exercise of the profession. A lawyer is expected to know how to listen to his clients, or, for example, to be effective when writing a document.

How much does a family lawyer in Mérida charge?

Most family lawyers in Merida charge a lower percentage if the case is resolved before the attorney does all the work necessary to go to trial. If you and your attorney agree to a contingency fee, the attorney must put the agreement in writing and provide you with a signed copy. The attorney's out-of-pocket costs, in many cases, are not included in the attorney's fees. You should be sure to pay attention to how an attorney bills you for outside costs.


Before hiring a Lawyer, it is important to ask for a prior estimate to find out how much their fees are and the rest of the expenses that may arise from the procedure (intervention of the Solicitor, experts, notarial testimony, etc.).


Before starting the professional relationship, it is important that a contract or order form be signed between the Lawyer and the Client, stating the services that the Lawyer will perform, the amount of the fees and the form of payment.
