The Dangers of Representing Yourself in a Divorce Posted by WBBlegal on February 25, 2014
As a family attorney I am often asked, “Do I need a lawyer, or can I just do this myself…?” This question plagues almost every person who is looking to start the divorce process. The quick answer is YES. No one should attempt to begin any legal proceedings without being represented by someone trained to protect their rights. There are situations where people may feel that this is the only option available to them or that a lawyer is not worth the trouble. If you are thinking about getting a divorce think twice before you go it on your own.
