Do I need an attorney to get divorced?

It is not necessary to hire an attorney to handle a divorce. That said, for particularly complicated divorces or where large sums of money are at stake, a lawyer will help ensure that his or her client’s interests are best protected. Common disputes include those concerning the custody of children, the question of alimony, and the division of joint assets. You may need an independent mediator to help sort out these issues. Most couples want to sort out these matters as soon as possible, so often an attorney or a mediator offers the best bridge to a satisfactory solution for both financial and emotional matters.
