A question I often hear is “Do I need a divorce lawyer?”
Even if you and your spouse agree on how to settle all the issues in your marriage, it is still very important that you be aware of all of your rights in order to protect yourself in the future.
It is best to have an attorney advise you as you negotiate a settlement with your spouse or have an attorney negotiate a settlement on your behalf. It is in your best interest to have an attorney draft a Separation Agreement for you.
This will help you in the future because you will then be sure that all issues are taken care of and that nothing will crop up in the future that will cause disagreements between you and your spouse.
