3 Reasons You Need A Divorce Attorney to Get Through This Tough Time
“Do I need a divorce attorney?” is probably not the question you thought you’d one day ask yourself back when you walked down the aisle or took your vows, but here we are.
It may come as a surprise, but almost 50 percent of all marriages in the US end in divorce. Pretty unfortunate, yes. But each couple and their marriage and, in some cases, the impending divorce are different.
So, a divorced friend may tell you the basic ins and outs of the legal process, but it would be better to hire a professional expert to share some burden.
Here are a few other reasons you should consider hiring a divorce attorney:
They’ll Be Your Voice of Reason
During a divorce, your emotions could be all over the place, and no matter how strong you think you are, there will be some heartache, anger, or regret. And truth be told, you shouldn’t be making any major life decisions while feeling this emotional, but unfortunately, there isn’t a way around it.
This is why having a divorce attorney can be useful. When you’re not thinking straight, they can help you see facts that you might be missing and guide you towards practical decisions, the ones you won’t regret down the lane.
Experience Is A Must
You probably think you can handle this on your own because this isn’t your first divorce, but here’s the thing: every divorce is unique. For instance, the assets, reasons, and of course, in most cases, the spouse is different; these variables change everything.
If it’s not a very friendly divorce, having somebody experienced on your side can really help, especially when it comes to asset division, child custody, spousal maintenance, debts, and so on.
An experienced lawyer could help you acquire what is rightfully yours. And it’s important to keep in mind that you probably don’t even realize some of the things you’re entitled to, for instance, your spouse’s future retirement funds (in some cases).
They Share Your Workload and Stress
While everybody is aware that a divorce is obviously not sunshine and rainbows, its complexity is still fairly underrated. The legal battle of a divorce is never easy. There is paperwork, strategy, and a whole lot of emotions that add up to tons of stress.
Having a divorce attorney on your side to share all that stress is going to feel like a godsend. To be candid, this is one phase of your life where having a partner to lean on would be ideal, but ironically that’s completely out of the question.
A legal attorney, though, can be a pretty useful partner.
