This section provides information on divorce help. It includes articles on whether to hire a lawyer or whether mediation is a good option.
Do You Need a Divorce Lawyer?
It depends on your situation's complexity and the conflict level between you and your spouse. You may not need a lawyer if you and your spouse can agree on all the divorce terms. However, if there are disagreements over property division, child custody, or spousal support, a lawyer can help protect your rights and negotiate a fair settlement. Additionally, if your spouse has hired a lawyer, it may be in your best interest to do the same to ensure a level playing field. Ultimately, the decision to hire a lawyer should be based on your individual circumstances and needs.
Mediation: Alternative to Litigation
Mediation is a process where a neutral third party assists couples who are separating to reach a voluntary agreement on issues such as child custody, division of assets, and spousal support.
Getting Legal Help
