Would you take this case

Hypothetically, if a prospective client were to come in for a consultation with the following factors, would you take his case?
1. The mother willingly allowed him to take on the role of primary managing conservator in a joint custody situation.
2. He has, at this point, no less than 40 violations of the custodial agreement.
3. He has two failed drug tests (positive for meth) in two years.
4. Enforcement and modification have been filed and served, in addition to a TRO precluding him from having contact with the children before the court date, which is less that a month away.
5. He has no job. No source of provable income.
6. The mother has no violations, a clean drug test, and a stable home.

Would you take his case?

Good luck.

If he has money he might be able to find an attorney to fight for him or he might reach out to pro bono organizations and find a lawyer for free.

If you are debating whether or not you should hire an attorney for a potential custody battle with the father of your children, you should err on the side of caution and seek an attorney's advice. If you do not have money, there might be pro bono options available. Additionally, hiring an attorney may not be as expensive as you think it might be, depending on how much work needs to be done on your case.
