The Importance of a Divorce Attorney

Do I Need to Hire a Divorce Lawyer?

Many people believe that they can handle their divorces entirely on their own. With today's internet-based market, many people find the forms online and fill out of the documents without ever consulting an attorney. Because divorces are so highly emotional, acting on a bad can leave someone in a very bad financial position. When you have so much at stake, don’t cut any corners just to try and “get it over with.”

Only a court can grant a divorce and legally dissolve a marriage and if you let your ex-spouse’s attorney do all the talking, you may end up with nothing in the end. Divorce is a complicated process and it truly requires the experience of a reputable attorney to get the job done right. Especially if there are children involved or it is a high net worth divorce, it will be to your best advantage to work with a divorce attorney.

Get a Dependable Trial Attorney on Your Side

Even if you chose to have a mediated or litigated divorce, doing things the right way the first time will save you money in the long run. It is cheaper to pay upfront to have an order done correctly than to change the order after a mistake was made. Once an order is made, it can be difficult to prove that the order was actually wrong. When people go to court on their own, without the representation of an attorney, they tend to tell the court only the emotional side of the story. While this is important to the client, it is not as important to the court, which must make orders based on facts that apply to the law.

Need a Rancho Cucamonga divorce lawyer?

By hiring an attorney, you can tell your emotional side of the story to them and they can then in turn, take the facts from the story and apply them to local and federal laws. If you have never come in contact with the law, you will not feel comfortable in a court of law and confident to address the judge with your questions and concerns. A qualified divorce attorney is an innate negotiator, problem solver and has considerate courtroom experience. In some cases, they may be able to relay your objectives better than you can. A local attorney may also already be familiar with the judges in the nearby courts and has built a relationship with them over time, based on mutual respect.

A reputable and knowledgeable attorney will be up to date on the latest developments to the law, recent court decisions and they will know how to tactically form and present a compelling case to the judge. Having an attorney may mean the difference between a winning or losing final settlement, so how important is the success of your case? At The Law Office of Stephanie J.
