The Downfall of Divorce Without an Attorney:
Divorce is already devastating. The thought of the financial burden that comes along with it can seem unbearable. Even the mere fact of having to search for the right Attorney can feel exhausting.
A “do it yourself” divorce can seem tempting, simple and manageable. This process can sometimes cost clients more – both financially and emotionally. Here are some of the ways bringing on an Attorney from the start can save you time, money and will help to reduce frustration:
- An Attorney can help you to figure out your rights, what belongs to you, and the best way to navigate these requests. Without the proper legal advice, you could be short-selling yourself in the long run.
- There is an immense amount of paperwork that requires a powerful attention to detail. One slight mistake can lead to having to start from scratch, prolonging the process which can be more expensive and very timely.
- In the end, you may still need the help of an Attorney. Couples separating often start off amicable and as emotions rise, attitudes and perception can change. Bringing an attorney in later in the game can be pricier and even more emotionally challenging. Your attorney can help navigate these emotions and keep the process civil and on schedule.
