Do You Need A Divorce Attorney?

Are you thinking of filing for divorce or have you already done so? Wondering whether you and your spouse can go through the divorce without a lawyer?

Of course, you don’t “need” a Divorce Attorney to proceed with a divorce. But there are countless reasons to do so, for ease and convenience.

Complicated and high-asset divorces usually do call for a Divorce Attorney. That is because the spouses need help with child support, spousal support, and time-sharing, etc. Not just that. When there are significantly valuable assets on the line, you might need the services of a competent lawyer. More often than not, many have reported being deprived of what is rightfully theirs, solely because they did not have a lawyer by their side.

Also, high-conflict divorces do need an Orlando FL Divorce Attorney. There are so many matters to be resolved during a divorce. High-conflict cases will find it even harder to do so. And with the probability of moving on to litigation, a lawyer by your side can be very helpful.

Instead, if you and your spouse have no conflicts at all and no children, maybe you don’t need a lawyer. If you don’t have valuable assets worth fighting for, your lawyer’s fees may surpass those assets’ worth. If you and your spouse are in no hurry to finalize the divorce too, a lawyer may not be needed.

But many have claimed that they would’ve had legal representation if they knew the consequences of not having one. It will invariably cost you more in fixing issues than actually getting a lawyer in the first place.
