If you are like most people who have chosen to pursue a divorce, you don’t want to spend your life savings on it, but you also realize that you cannot just look the other way. You want to start a new life without being taken advantage of, or later regret that gave in because you felt lost and powerless. You know that you both need to be represented by separate counsel, and you want someone sharp, compassionate, organized, and very knowledgeable on YOUR side. You want to negotiate the best possible outcome but at the same time, you want this to be over as soon as possible.
You need to hire a divorce lawyer who will vigorously negotiate the best possible divorce settlement.
In some legal divorce cases, you may not be sure that you trust your husband or wife to be completely honest and or to be fair during your upcoming divorce proceedings.
Maybe you have children, you do not want them to be in the middle of your divorce, but they need adequate financial support after your divorce.
Maybe you thought you could save money in the beginning by going this alone, and you are very intelligent but it seems like you are just getting beaten up in Court. Why does the judge just keep siding with him/her? It is time to even the playing field!
The bottom line: your life style is going to change, you need as much financial and emotional support after your divorce as possible. You need a strong negotiator, not just a good listener.
