Why Should You Hire A Divorce Lawyer?

When your family faces the reality that a divorce is imminent, you have choices to make as to how to handle your case. You could try to do it yourself or use the services of a family law facilitator. So why should you hire a divorce lawyer?

While hiring an attorney seems to cost more, in reality a good attorney can save you literally thousands of dollars in crafting a settlement or litigating the case (going to court). If you decide to use the family law facilitator, you will have less than an hour to talk about your case and begin the arduous process of preparing pleadings such as forms, declarations, schedules of assets, and the numerous other forms of paperwork required by the courts. The facilitator does not represent you and you will still be personally responsible for all court appearances — by yourself.

Handling any aspect of your case by yourself can put you at a disadvantage. You may make a decision during property division that leaves you with substantially less money than you should get. You may even end up seeing your children less often. During our decades practicing in family law, we have seen far too many people make the wrong choice when deciding how to handle their cases — and end up forfeiting their rights.

Don't Risk It. Instead, Call 619-567-5703.
