Do I Need A Lawyer?
FAQs About Hiring a Divorce Lawyer
If you are thinking about a divorce, you may wonder whether you can handle it yourself, whether the two of you can use one lawyer, or whether you need to hire the meanest lawyer in town. These FAQs give you the answers.
It may be possible to handle your own divorce, but in most cases, it's not a good idea. Do-it-yourself divorces are best reserved for situations in which (a) the marriage is of short duration; (b) the parties have no children; (c) the parties own no real estate and little other property; (d) both spouses are capable of supporting themselves; (e) they agree on how to divide their property and debts; and (f) the spouse handling the divorce is good with details, deadlines, and paperwork. Even if you fit into this category, you may want to hire an attorney to look over your final agreement.
