Do I Need A Lawyer To Get A Divorce?

The answer is no, you do not need a lawyer to get a divorce. However, in most cases, the stakes are high and having a lawyer in your corner is having someone who knows the law, and is looking out for your best interests.

A lawyer can answer any questions you might have with regard to separation, divorce, child custody and visitation, child support, alimony, property and debt division, domestic violence, and divorce and bankruptcy issues. A lawyer can help you decide what kind of case to file and can help you file it. If you have children with your spouse, a lawyer can work with you on an agreement with the other parent. If there is no agreement, a lawyer can represent you at the trail. If there has been abuse in the marriage, a lawyer can seek a restraining order on your behalf. If there are disagreements within the dissolution of the marriage, it is best to have a lawyer who can speak on your behalf, again, having your best interests in mind.
