Who needs a divorce attorney?
Not all divorces need to be handled by a divorce attorney. The following is an example of divorces that may not need to be handled by a lawyer:
- A simple divorce were no joint assets, bills or children exist.
- A divorce where both are in mutual agreement.
- Where both parents are separated however they have done everything possible to keep things amicable for the sake of their children.
- The whereabouts of the other person is unknown.
- The other party is in jail.
In these cases the divorce process is 99% paper and 1% spent in front of a judge. Most attorneys do not do the paperwork themselves but hire paralegals or document preparers to handle the tedious task.
