Lawyers can be an asset during divorce process

California couples may think getting a divorce is so easy they don't need a lawyer. Many may not need them if there are no children, property or other areas of disagreement. Savvy spouses, on the other hand, understand that divorces can be complicated and know they'll benefit from having a lawyer guide them through the process.

In order for people to represent themselves in a divorce, they must understand how laws work. If they don't, they may not get a favorable reaction from the judge. A divorce lawyer, however, knows the laws and how to make them work best to the client's advantage, whether it be getting child or spousal support or a fair division of marital assets. The divorce process can be a stressful time for couples who may not be able to think calmly and objectively during this time of emotional turmoil. Since divorce lawyers have no emotional investment in a marriage, they can guide their clients to making reasonable decisions. A family law attorney also may be able to suggest ways to settle the divorce in or out of court.

Paperwork involved in a divorce can be formidable, especially when the spouses can't agree on what to do. A spouse who does not have legal representation may be intimidated by all the forms and might inadvertently fill them out incorrectly, delaying the process. A divorce lawyer will know what forms need to be completed and will do so correctly.

Divorcing spouses may be gambling with their futures by representing themselves. A person who is facing the end of a marriage will most likely be better off in the long run by obtaining the assistance of experienced legal counsel.

  • “Kennedy helped me with my legal issue and was just amazing throughout the whole process. He was always available to explain everything to me and really put my mind at ease.

He seems equally capable and comfortable in the courtroom or at the settlement table. He helped me weigh the facts, consider the emotions and evaluate the cost of my case.
