Do I Need An Attorney?
You have several choices to make throughout the divorce process, and choosing whether or not to use the services of a divorce lawyer is a major one. The question of whether or not to hire a lawyer typically arises after the choice of divorce or separation has already been made. It could be you who initiated the process, your spouse, or both of you who made the decision together.
Filing for divorce without an attorney is usually an easy process for those with a straightforward case. This typically involves shorter marriages without children, where there is little shared property, and agreement on everything.
Reasons You May Want an Attorney
- Division of property and assets is required
- Children are involved (child support, child custody)
- Your spouse hired an attorney
- You don’t understand the divorce paperwork
- You’re unable to communicate with your spouse well
- You’re unsure what you’re entitled to or if your settlement is fair
