Going through a divorce? You don’t have to go it alone
These days, it seems like there’s an online how-to video or article for just about everything. While these resources can be enormously helpful for many things, they may not be as helpful when it comes to complex, highly individualized processes, including divorce.
Family legal matters can become very complicated, even when they seem obvious and straightforward at the beginning. For instance, you might decide that your divorce is simple and straightforward, and feel that doing it on your own will help to save time and money; but it might not be long until you find yourself wishing you had had some legal guidance from the beginning.
The details involved in a divorce can quickly become overwhelming. For example, you might know that you have to divide marital assets, but you can get lost in all the details and paperwork that comes with that one single issue.
The legal process can also prove to be more complex and intimidating than you realize. Are you meeting deadlines? Did you file the paperwork properly? Do you need to file certain petitions?
Further, it can quickly become clear that divorce will affect other areas of your life. You may have to take calls at work, stay up late completing paperwork and spend weekends researching various legal remedies. All this can take a toll on you, your job and your family.
