Do I Need to hire an attorney for my Divorce?
Newport Beach divorce attorney Bettina Yanez explains, If you are asking the question, do I need to hire an attorney for my divorce? It is important to research and speak to others regarding this matter. Hiring an attorney is not required, but it can definitely be beneficial. When deciding whether to hire a divorce attorney there are many factors that need to be considered. Both parties may want to discuss how they would like to proceed with the dissolution of marriage. Some couples decide they would like to represent themselves to keep the costs down. On the other hand, some couples will both decide to hire an attorney to represent them in family court in order to avoid errors and thus keep costs down.
When hiring a divorce attorney there are some important questions to consider, how long has this attorney been practicing family law? Is this a Certified Family Law Specialist? how long will the divorce process take? how much is the retainer? and is this something I can do on my own. The duration of divorce will vary depending on the particular circumstances of your case. The retainer fee will depend on if the case is contested, or uncontested. Often time’s individuals prefer hiring a family law attorney who is familiar with the process, legal jargon, and is able to walk them through the process, as well as answer any questions they may have along the way.
