St. Lucie County Divorce Attorney
Do I need a divorce attorney?
Many people think they don’t need a divorce attorney. They either don’t have the money, or they think their case is straightforward or amicable enough that a lawyer would be a waste of time and money. But throughout the course of the divorce, other, more complex issues come up or their spouse has an attorney and the playing field is no longer even.
If you are going through a divorce, you need a divorce attorney. Divorce is a legal matter and it requires a knowledgeable, experienced professional to navigate all the complexities and issues that can come up. If you are not an attorney, you are probably not in a position to know statutes, case law, and court procedures that pertain to your situation. You may not know what legal rights and obligations you have. It’s really not a risk worth taking to get a divorce without proper representation.
