Many people think that they can save money by representing themselves in a divorce. Even if they can handle their own divorce, the realities of the situation say that they should not. Instead, they should contact a divorce attorney to represent them.
The reality is that you are too close to your own divorce to be effective in handling things on your own. Your judgment may become clouded by emotion. You may not even see issues that you need to address. Once the divorce agreement is signed, it is too late to change things without seeking a modification in court.
The average person is far more likely to make a mistake that can have long-term consequences on their finances and their children. This may be the first time that you are involved in a divorce. An experienced divorce attorney sees these issues every day and knows how to handle them.
You need to take the time to tend to yourself and what you are going through. Divorce is stressful enough without having to handle the legal details. Dealing with your own divorce will only compound your stress.
The best result in a divorce is a negotiated agreement that represents a compromise between the parties. Lawyers actually make this more likely because they can give their clients objective and reasonable advice that can lower the emotions between the two parties. Being able to take a step back allows you to make better decisions in your best interests.
