While many young couples without children or significant debt or assets can successfully file for divorce on their own, the majority of divorcing couples would be taking a major risk not hiring an attorney. Although many people are concerned that hiring an attorney will be too expensive, employing the help of an attorney actually increases the chances you will save money on child support, spousal maintenance, and other costs. Hiring an attorney to represent you during your divorce can benefit you in many ways.

Save Time and Frustration

The American legal system is one of the best in the world, but it can be tedious to navigate. Divorces, especially complicated or high net worth cases, can require seemingly endless amounts of paperwork, signatures, meetings, and legwork. Because divorce is often a deeply emotional process, some people find that they are simply unable to handle the added stress of managing the legal aspects of their divorce alone.

Our era has been called the Digital Age, the Computer Age, and the New Media Age, but perhaps the best description is the Information Age. Never before has so much data and a wide spectrum of statistics been so readily available to academics and researchers looking to learn about how the world works and how we work within it. The availability of such information has led to new studies on human relationship, marriage, and divorce being published on a regular basis, with each one providing suggestions on how to better our interpersonal connections.

They learn how to fix their cars, prepare gourmet meals, and even how to identify and treat minor illnesses. While a do-it-yourself approach can be cost-effective in many situations, there are some circumstances in which avoiding the expense of professional assistance may actually cost you dearly in the long term. Beyond the finances, however, there are a number of other reasons that every divorce should include, at the very least, a consultation with a qualified attorney.

Organization and Control

You may have a pretty good idea of the various considerations inherent to the divorce process, and they seem simple enough: divide the property, make arrangements for the children, decide upon spousal maintenance and child support, file the petition, and wait for the court. But, do you really understand each of the steps involved with every one of the listed elements of divorce, and in what order they should be completed? A lawyer, however, has handled dozens, if not hundreds or more, divorce cases and can assist you in preparing an organized approach. He or she can help you properly evaluate your marital property, for example, ensuring that neither you nor your spouse are unduly burdened by tax consequences down the road.
