Should I get a lawyer for my divorce?

You should always have a divorce lawyer when you are going through a divorce. Even if you and your ex agree on everything, it’s a good idea to have a divorce attorney.  There are several reasons for this, including:

  1. You might not agree on everything simply because you don’t know every single aspect that needs to be agreed upon throughout the settlement process.
  2. Even if you agree on everything, you’ll still need a lawyer to draft the agreement and ensure that everything is noted properly. This document will detail future obligations for the remainder of your life so it’s important to get it right.
  3. Divorce lawyers know the process and can make sure that the necessary paperwork is filed, and that it’s done correctly.
