Family Law Pro-Tip | Do I Need A Lawyer?

If there were one question we hear the most out there in the divorce world, it would definitely be: Do I really need a lawyer when I’m getting divorced? People who ask this question usually fall into one of two categories: 1) Smart professionals who think they've worked out all the terms on their own/how hard could it be anyway, or 2) People who literally cannot afford a lawyer. If you fall into either of these camps, take a gander at this video before you get too far down the road. Because listen, we 100% get the logic: Split up your stuff, allocate time with the kids, figure out the numbers—then write that down and ask the judge to sign it. Bada bing, bada boom, divorce granted! Sounds great on paper, but unfortunately, it’s normally not that simple. Your divorce will affect every single thing you hold near and dear in your entire life. We’re talking money, kids, retirement assets, houses, holidays, heirlooms—literally, you name it. We think investing in your divorce (so long as good, reasonable lawyers who put client needs first are at the helm - make sure you get one of those kind) is some of the best money you can spend. You want to make sure it’s done right and that, at a minimum, you know what you’re getting yourself into.
