To Help You with a Divorce

You have been served with Divorce papers, your head is spinning and you are saying to yourself, “I am reasonably intelligent. I have a college degree. “Do I really need a lawyer?

There is no legal requirement that you hire a lawyer to get divorced. You can get a divorce even if neither of the parties hires a lawyer. A divorce is a complicated matter with lots of moving parts. Here are five good reasons to hire a lawyer to help you with your divorce.

1.     An attorney can explain the divorce process, and help you gather all of the information you will need to made decisions.

2.     Regardless of how long you have been married, you have acquired “things,” . . . a house, a car, debts. A lawyer can help you figure out the best way to transfer assets.

3.     A divorce usually does not end on the day the final judgment is entered. A divorce attorney will follow-up to make sure that you actually receive what you bargain for.

4.     You have children who will still want to love your spouse after the divorce, a divorce lawyer can help you create a plan to encourage and support the children’s bond with the other spouse and at the same time keep them safe.

5.     You will need to support your children even after the divorce, a divorce lawyer can help you figure out the correct amount of child support.

    My cousin has recently gone through a divorce. That made me think of how complicated thing must get when spouses separate. I never realized that a divorce lawyer can actually help the couple prevent breaking bonds between themselves and their children by creating a plan for supporting them. That’s something new that I’ll remember if I’m ever in that situation.

    A “do it yourself” divorce is one of the worst things you can do. It is not a question of how intelligent a person is, but how much they are going to have to learn and the consequences of missing something, of which there is a very high possibility. As it is, divorce is a highly stressful process for everyone involved and the last thing you want, like you mentioned, is to have missed something after the final judgement, only to realize it later, if at all. I also think there is a myth that getting a lawyer makes the situation more “hostile”, while the opposite is true. Most divorce lawyers WANT the process to be as smooth as possible and the terms to be as clear as possible, so there is no miscommunication that can lead of conflicts later on.

I’ll have to share this info with my friend who may be in need of a divorce lawyer soon!

You mentioned that regardless of how long you have been married, you have acquired “things” and a lawyer can help you figure out the best way to transfer assets.
