When it’s time to file for divorce or you have been served with divorce papers, you’ll want an attorney with extensive litigation experience. Even if you think that the divorce should be “easy” because you and your spouse agree on everything including division of assets, spousal support, custody and child support, one of you could always change your mind.

Do I Really Need an Attorney?
You may think that it’s easy enough to file the paperwork yourself– but even if both spouses agree on everything, you could end up signing documents that you wish you hadn’t, especially when it comes to visitation and spousal support.
It’s important to have professionally drafted documents to ensure your rights are not violated. People change their minds. In the event that two years down the road, your (ex) spouse decides to withhold the children from you, she or he may be held in contempt of court– if the original documents are drafted correctly. When drafted properly, they are a valid contract between you and your spouse.
Divorce paperwork is complex; don’t try to go it alone. Turn to an experience attorney to guide you through the intimidating divorce process.
