Why do I Need a Divorce Attorney?

 Reno, Nevada divorce attorney

When a marriage is ending, it can be emotional and overwhelming. How the divorce is handled will impact your life and your children’s life long after the divorce is final. Asking yourself questions like “do I need to hire a lawyer?” and “can I represent myself in court?” are valid concerns. 

We recommend talking with an attorney about your legal options before beginning the divorce process or immediately after finding out about the divorce if you are on the serving end. Learning how the divorce process works can give you peace of mind. A divorce attorney can advise how to protect your rights and interests, especially if your spouse is likely to disagree with your requests.

Unless your marriage lasted a very short time, you and your spouse have minimal assets, and you and your spouse do not have children, you should seek legal representation. Skilled legal representation will help protect your assets and property, child custody, and support needed for both you and your children. Most divorces are not so simple. For those representing themselves, it’s common to overlook legal issues like taxes, division of retirement assets, allocation of debts and other issues.
