For instance, divorcing couples often have to address many questions ranging from division of assets and debt to child custody. These concerns can be emotional and difficult to handle without the help of a qualified lawyer. Divorcing individuals have access to many protections under the law. Some of these protections may include the right to alimony, fair division of property, and child support. While it is entirely possible to file for divorce without legal counsel, it is important to understand that you may risk giving up key legal rights. For example, you have the right to request documentation regarding your former spouse’s assets and income. In some cases, you may have the right to seek alimony to help you move forward and rebuild your life. A divorce lawyer can review your case, inform you about your rights, and ensure that your divorce is resolved quickly, fairly, and in a manner that is best for your children and all parties involved.
