yes, they want the money!!!!!!  But that has nothing to do with how well they will represent you.  I'd say what's important is the types of questions they ask.  Are they listening to your story, or are they delving deeper into it?  Also, are they meeting with you, or taking calls, signing papers, and allowing interruptions during your important time?  I've found that busy lawyers tend to rush through their points in courts too, missing really important points in court...

You have to check following points before hiring a lawyer for child custody.

1. Personality and style of a lawyer
2. Experience of lawyer in child custody
3. Fee structure of a lawyer
4. Is a lawyer providing a free consultation or not?
5. If a single parent cannot afford a paid attorney, he or she may qualify for a court-appointed attorney. The county family court will maintain a network of pro bono attorneys to assist with child custody cases.
