Do I need an Attorney To File Divorce?
Although divorces do not require you to hire an attorney, if you choose to represent yourself you are held to the same standard as an attorney when it comes to knowledge of the law and procedures in the court room. All divorces require at least one final hearing, maybe more, depending on the issues. You have to get it right the first time. There are many pitfalls in the negotiations and drafting of the decree. If you do not properly transfer title or provide for an enforceable parenting plan you may be stuck with a result that cannot be remedied.
