Life can be complicated. We all have our ups and downs and sometimes we do silly things and that can lead to serious consequences. On the other hand, it might be another person who is impacting you in some way and if you perceive there may be problems on the horizon, it is always best to talk to a lawyer.
Complex & Unforgiving
Law is a huge field with many subsectors – criminal, civil, corporate, business, family, immigration, to name but a few. When a legal process commences, there are hard and fast rules and you can’t rewind and try again; only when a case is correctly presented, would a court agree to hear it. Without the advice of an experienced lawyer, you run the risk of being on the wrong end of a court decision and very few appeals are successful. Talk to the litigation solicitors Thailand or your country has, and get the very best advice in a timely manner.
Situations To Seek Legal Advice
The list is long and includes:
- Charged with a crime
- Receiving notice of a lawsuit
- Wishing to recover an asset
- Planning to marry
- Setting up a business
- Preparing to enter a foreign country
- Start or respond to divorce proceedings
- Obtaining a court order
Of course, you won’t find a law firm that handles every sector; they tend to focus on several fields. Choose one that has a great track record (you can read online client testimonials) in your desired field. The great thing about legal services is they can be handled remotely. A few Zoom calls with the legal expert is usually adequate; of course, the lawyer represents you in court, should the proceedings involve such a process.
No Room For Error
If, for example, your partner suddenly wishes to divorce and you respond without seeking legal advice, you could end up on the bad side of a court decision, which could cost a lot of money and might involve child custody. In the event you are charged with a crime, you must ask for a lawyer as soon as you are read your rights; failure to do so could lead to a conviction and no one wants a criminal record.
Setting Up A Business
This is hard enough when you do it at home, but when you wish to set up a company in a foreign country, this demands legal advice. The lawyer gathers the required information about you and your business, and then lays out all of your options, pointing out pluses and minuses. Once you have made a choice, the lawyer requests documentation from you and gives you banking instructions that must be done within a timeframe. Within a couple of weeks, your business is legal and you can trade. If you feel you need some legal advice, Google is your best friend and can hook you up with the right lawyer who can advise accordingly and if action is required, your lawyer can implement.
