Hiring A Divorce Attorney.
You may be asking yourself whether you should hire an attorney for your divorce or custody case. Consulting with an attorney is important to protect your legal rights. You may believe that you don’t need any legal advice because you and your spouse agree on all of the issues. However, you should consult with an attorney prior to signing on the dotted line so that you are not giving up your current or future legal rights relating to financial issues or issues concerning your children. You should be aware of the complexities of the law regarding these issues prior to entering into an agreement.
Your lawyer will help you get the best terms for you when settling issues regarding child custody, financial support issues, property and debt division, and all other issues in your case. When you consult with your attorney, you will have the best chance of settling your case with terms in your best interest whether you are a stay-at-home mom, a CEO at a major company or anything in between.
