Should you go through divorce without a lawyer?

It's hard to imagine going through the divorce process without a lawyer, but there are some couples that decide to do so. They might be couples that have few assets and no children or those that have been married for only a few years. While these scenarios may seem ideal for going through the process without a lawyer, the outcome may not be what either individual had hoped for.

Even if someone does not have many assets, it's important to remember that divorce is a legal process that ends with a binding contract. If you and your soon-to-be-ex file paperwork incorrectly, you may actually end up spending more time and money than you would have if you worked with an attorney on your case.

But as we know, many divorces happen after years of marriage and several kids. So for many couples, going through divorce without an attorney can lead to one or more of the individuals signing an agreement that does not help their future. It may also mean they end up with a much smaller share of what they should have received. An attorney can also be there for individuals who have to fight for custody of their children. That alone can be a very frustrating and emotional process. Dealing with legal paperwork and court hearings while also sorting through your emotions can lead to undesirable results in the long run. If you are considering filing for divorce, it may be helpful to turn to an attorney for advice.
