“Why should I hire a divorce attorney?”

Morris County Family Law AttorneyThe advent of the internet and the rising accessibility to information it offers has had some interesting consequences for “do-it-yourselfers”. Youtube hosts thousands of videos informing viewers how to do things as diverse as putting in a new floor to building a car engine. But how does this access to information affect divorce and family law?

While it certainly may be possible to spend hours on the internet learning all about divorce law, when it comes to actually going through a divorce you may still want to consider hiring a Morris County divorce attorney, and here’s a few reasons why.

The many aspects of divorce to consider

Divorce is not a simple process. Many greatly impactful aspects need to be considered, things such as division of assets, child support, child custody, and spousal support (alimony) are all in and of themselves extremely complicated issues, each requiring extensive knowledge in order to navigate and resolve favorably. Each of these separate topics requires years of learning and experience to master.

Are you and your spouse in complete agreement?

If you and your spouse are in complete agreement over all of the terms of your divorce, hiring a family law attorney may not be necessary. But who are we kidding, when are divorcing couples ever in complete agreement about anything? Chances are your spouse may want too many assets, or assets that you would rather not part with, or more time with the kids than you think is fair, the list of complications goes on and on. Having a divorce attorney who knows how to negotiate for what you think is important is extremely beneficial.

Meeting court deadlines and requirements

Another aspect to consider is that of the time you have available. During a divorce, the courts will require a great many filings, each with specific requirements and deadlines. It is extremely difficult to stay organized and deligent throughout this process while still working a full-time job, and juggling the many other things important in your life. Having a divorce attorney who’s full-time job is doing exactly these things makes sense. Being late or misfiling documents with the courts can have extremely harmful consequences for your divorce proceedings.

Long term impacts

Experience in family law goes a long way. Not only can an experienced divorce attorney negotiate a favorable settlement for the divorce, they also know how to consider the future impacts of agreements made today. Maybe you want to keep the family home, but how will that impact your future tax situation? Maybe it’s not as wise of a move as it initially seems. A seasoned divorce attorney will know how to spot these pitfalls ahead of time, and be able to advise you accordingly.
