As you are probably aware, it is possible to get a divorce without a lawyer. However, it is not recommended, especially if your case is anything but extremely simple. If you need help with property division, child custody, alimony, or child support, you are going to need a lawyer’s help. Even if your divorce seems fairly simple, you should consider the main reasons to hire a divorce lawyer.
Get Legal Jargon Deciphered
You may be able to get the paperwork to file for divorce online, but that does not mean you will necessarily know what all the terms mean. In fact, you will probably not have to get very far into the documents to realize you do not understand certain legal phrases. Rather than looking up each term as you try to fill out the paperwork, you should hire a lawyer who can explain it all to you in layman’s terms as you fill in the blanks.
Get an Immediate Response
When your ex sends you papers or makes threats, you need to be able to tell someone right away so you can find out how to respond. Getting divorced through websites that simply provide you with the paperwork to file does not allow you the luxury of asking questions. When you use the services of Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C., we are happy to answer your questions and soothe your concerns right away. Our fast response time allows you to get some peace of mind instead of staying up all night worrying about every threat from your ex.
Get the Representation You Deserve
You will need someone on your side during negotiations. This is especially true if your ex has a lawyer, as he or she will have an immediate advantage unless you hire someone, too. You need a legal professional who can make sure you are not being walked on when it comes to negotiations with your former spouse. Our team can accompany you to meetings and advise you before you accept any type of deal.
Of course, if you go to court, you will definitely need representation. In fact, you need a lawyer who has successfully represented several clients in divorce court. This can improve both your chances of winning and your peace of mind during the divorce. Not every lawyer has trial experience, so be sure to choose one who does.
