The Importance of Having Your Own Attorney in a Divorce Case

The Importance of Having Your Own Attorney in a Divorce Case

If you or someone you know has been through a divorce, you know the process can be long, arduous, and emotionally exhausting. Having an attorney in your corner can ease these burdens to help you reach a favorable outcome. The divorce attorneys at Moskowitz Law Group are here to support you through whatever challenges you may face.

Handling the Logistics

Getting a divorce means a lot of paperwork. There are specific documents to fill out and file. It may be challenging to determine which ones are necessary for your situation. Your lawyer can prepare and file any necessary paperwork, ensuring everything is correct.

Facilitating Communication

No one wants a messy divorce; but sometimes ending a serious partnership can be emotionally intense, making it harder to compromise on agreements. If you have children to consider, the divorce process can become even more complex regarding custody rights. An attorney can help you communicate with your spouse in a healthy and professional manner while advocating for your rights.

Because divorces tend to bring out intense emotions and you might not be able to agree with your spouse, having an attorney that can advocate for your interests can be essential to ensuring that you reach mutually acceptable settlement agreement. Having an attorney also helps you remain objective and understand your options. What you think you may be entitled to in a divorce may not be what you are entitled to under the law or unreasonable to pursue under the circumstances of your case.

Do I Really Need My Own Attorney?

While having an attorney is not a requirement for divorce, having a legal professional on your side is always beneficial. Certain factors, such as high-value or complex assets, child custody issues, and potential spousal support, can complicate the divorce process, making it harder to advocate for yourself.

Some questions you should ask yourself to determine whether you need an attorney are:

  • Does my spouse have a divorce lawyer?
  • Are there high-intensity feelings post-separation?
  • Will my spouse and I be able to communicate in a calm manner?
  • Do I truly understand my rights?
  • Do I trust or fully understand what I have googled or researched about divorce and divorce law?

Even if you do not think you will need a lawyer, meeting with one during an initial consultation can help you achieve clarity about your rights and next steps.
