Divorce Resource Advocate Linda Kazares discusses your options if you do not want to hire a divorce attorney.
So besides getting an attorney there are some options that are available. So I’ll just give you some of my feedback.
I am clearly not a legal expert per se but from my own experience and again, back to the internet, do some more research.
There are many options online for filing your own divorce, books that will give you guidance and other resources that can move you along in the process.
It’s an extreme case to not use an attorney, frankly. I think it’s really important for at some point in time, for instance in my case where we had a very friendly divorce.
But what we did do is at the very end we got one attorney that handled the paperwork for both of us because we had already made the decisions on what we wanted to do, how we were going to split assets.
So it was easy although many people will warn you and tell you that’s not a good idea, certainly not a good idea if there’s any contention.
The first time something like that comes up, either dial for telephone numbers, call a friend, look on both get your own attorney if there’s anything that you are going to end up arguing about.
