When You Need an Attorney for A Divorce or When A Do It Yourself Divorce Center May Not Be Your Answer.
When You Need an Attorney for A Divorce or When A Do It Yourself Divorce Center May Not Be Your Answer. There have been a large number of do it yourself divorce centers that have cropped up over the years where nonattorneys essentially give you a packet of papers to file yourself in the case of a divorce. Alternatively, you can download documents from the Internet to try a do it yourself divorce.
For a divorce where there are no assets or children or alimony at issue, this may work fine for some, but generally, if you have things at issue, you will likely be better served with the advice of an attorney in your divorce, even if you think it is a simple divorce or easy divorce, or even if the parties are amicable about the terms of the divorce. Drafting the terms of your divorce into a property or matrimonial settlement agreement is the heart and soul of any divorce that has to anticipate all kinds of things that could possibly go wrong.
A do it yourself divorce center cannot give you legal advice as they are not attorneys and therefore, it will be ill equipped to giving you legal advice on drafting the terms of a property or matrimonial settlement agreement for your divorce. It may cost a little more, but you would be pennie wise and not pound foolish to get the advice of an attorney in drafting the terms of your divorce when there is child custody, child support, alimony or equitable distribution of assets or debts at issue.
