Does Every Divorce Need a Divorce Attorney?

Not every divorce or legal separation needs a divorce attorney. Some divorces are small and couples can file an uncontested divorce themselves. If you have a short-term marriage (something under five years), no assets, and no children, then you can file an uncontested divorce.
