Hiring a family law attorney who is also a Certified Family Law Specialist also known as a “CFLS” can also be greatly beneficial to you because not only do they primarily or exclusively practice family law, you can have confidence knowing you are being represented by someone with proven experience and expertise in family law and divorce matters.
