Does Every Divorce Need a Divorce Attorney?

Not every divorce or legal separation needs a divorce attorney. Some divorces only involve minor issues which allows couples to file an uncontested divorce. If you have a short-term marriage, very few assets, and no children you should consider filing an uncontested divorce. Uncontested divorces are quicker and less expensive.

If your divorce is more complex, involves valuing and dividing assets, involves child custody issues, or involves conflict, you will want to review your case with one or more divorce lawyers. This is called a contested divorce. Reviewing a contested divorce with a divorce attorney helps in evaluating the likely outcome of your case.

Whether you decide on an uncontested divorce or contested divorce you will have questions. Most clients have never been through a divorce and do not know what to expect or what to ask. For example, what is the difference between a legal separation and a divorce? How do we calculate child support? Can I evict my spouse? How long does a divorce take? How much does a divorce cost?

Our website provides the answers to most of these questions. Review our site for answers to your general questions. Then give us a call to schedule a consult with one of our divorce attorneys to discuss the specifics of your case.
