Do I Really Need a Divorce Attorney? SHORT ANSWER: YES
Nowadays, “do-it-yourself” is all the rage, and tutorials on everything from DIY home repair to DIY braces litter the internet. Some people, faced with a failing marriage, start to think that maybe they can have a DIY divorce — it’ll save a few bucks; how bad could it be? But, much like those DIY braces, your divorce is a process you should leave to the professionals.
The vast majority of do-it-yourself divorces end in disaster. There are many potential problems that you may not have considered. Courts will often take a long time with your case without a lawyer to speed it along. If you make any mistakes, you’ll need to move backward and painstakingly retrace your steps before continuing. In many instances the mistake may be very hard to change or even permanent. If you and your ex-spouse disagree
over child custody, property division, or alimony, it can be almost impossible to resolve properly without an experienced attorney who knows the law and what family court judges look for in resolving such disputes. An experienced lawyer will help demystify the complicated paperwork, negotiate key issues with you and your ex-spouse, be a vital advocate for you in regards to child custody issues, and, most importantly, present your side of the case effectively in court. Not only that, but they can assist in gaining a restraining order, aid in presenting any potential domestic abuse issues before the court, and help you expose those areas in which your ex-spouse has been dishonest. The fact is, the average American lacks the necessary intricate knowledge of local family courts. Divorce is already an emotionally taxing, complicated process. It’s best to trust an attorney who has spent years dedicated to the ins and outs of family law.
