Divorce is an incredibly complicated legal process even for couples who amicably agree that it suits their best interests. In fact, many spouses underestimate how many decisions and complex negotiations are involved in effectively finalizing the process. Whether your divorce is contested or uncontested, you’re going to need an attorney to protect your best interests.
For most people, navigating the divorce process is like taking a great leap into the unknown. Before you make any decisions about your future, you need to have an understanding of your legal rights and obligations. This is particularly important if your case ends up in court before a family law judge. So before you step into any legal complications or accidentally accept an unfavorable agreement, it’s imperative that you hire a lawyer.
A divorce lawyer can assist you with the following matters:
- Completing your divorce petition correctly
- Responding to the divorce petition in a timely manner if you’re not the filing spouse
- Providing legal guidance throughout your divorce
- Helping you negotiate child custody, child support, and spousal support
- Cataloguing your separate and community assets, property, and debts
- Representing your interests in divorce court
- Negotiating a fair settlement
