Do I Need a Lawyer for Divorce?

In most cases, yes, obtaining legal services to protect yourself is a wise choice. "Even if your divorce is friendly and you've reached a mutual agreement with your spouse about custody and property, obtaining help from a professional is often a good idea."

Although some Courts have forms online, to someone who is not familiar with the law, those forms can be overwhelming. Some fill-in forms do not suit your needs and often do not address all issues for a divorcing couple. "An attorney will ensure that all matters that should be resolved in a divorce are resolved. Acting without an attorney could end up being a costly mistake both to the parties and to their children."

Whether you are starting the divorce process, have already filed, or are in the process of divorce, contact the Law Office of Christine M. Bechtold today at 770.466.2700 or to schedule your free divorce initial consultation. I offer both flat rates and reasonable fees for retainer cases.
