An amicable divorce is an ideal scenario. Both you and your spouse agree
to end the marriage, and calmly talk through the issues to reach a legal
conclusion. If you and your spouse are on good terms, and the case is
uncontested, it may be tempting to avoid hiring a lawyer. However, this
is a mistake.
An Attorney Can Help You Understand Your Rights
State and local divorce laws may be difficult to understand. Issues such
as child support and custody, division of assets, and settlement of debts
can be confusing, and you may be unaware of important rights you have.
Thus, a lawyer can inform you of your rights throughout the process.
An Attorney Can Advise You on Complicated Legal Decisions
Even if the divorce is relatively simple, you may agree to terms that are
not in your financial interest. Furthermore, you may fail to take all
the factors into consideration regarding child custody and spousal support.
A lawyer can discuss the complex legal issues and help protect your interests.
An Attorney Can Guide the Conversation
You and your spouse may not remember to discuss various important factors.
This would leave you in a stressful situation later on when you have to
make a quick decision regarding something that could affect your financial
wellbeing and relationship with your children. A lawyer can make sure
you and your spouse reach an agreement on all the major and minor details
of the divorce.
