Recently overheard somebody at a publication telling a group of people why they should not have their own lawyers, how they could not trust lawyers, how attorneys would deceive them and how they ought to rely upon the company the speaker belonged to rather. That conversation got me thinking about why people facing divorce and separation need not any attorney, but a good divorce attorney. You want to know your Rights, duties and obligations under the law. Only a lawyer that has been retained to represent your interests can advise you. How do you realistically discuss financial arrangements in separating and divorcing, if you do not understand what your rights, duties and obligations are Not knowing what your rights are can result in not obtaining your fair share of resources, your fair share of service or your fair share of time with your kids.
Not understanding what your duties and obligations are can because you’re paying more than your fair share of resources or your fair share of service. Most lawyers offer a special reduced rate for consulting services to encourage people to get information early and often. There is absolutely no reason to rely on backyard fence advice, once you can get real information from a qualified experienced divorce attorney for a reasonable fee. Moreover, in my experience, the backyard fence advice is generally incorrect. Do not forget that if what you hear is half true, it is still wrong. My friend is blessed. Why cannot rely on my friend’s experience and knowledge you can do this but what you will need to understand is that unless your friend is a licensed Divorce awyer, he or she is not license to practice law.
Your friend’s knowledge will be limited to his or her particular expertise. His or her experience with the law is restricted to the facts of his case and the law as it had been at the moment. Things change. The law changes any change in the facts will alter the outcome or information. Additional changes in the law will alter the advice. Your friend simply lacks the knowledge and expertise to offer sound practical legal counsel the sooner you get a Lawyer, the earlier you will learn what you will need to know to protect yourself and your kids and property interests. Sometimes people do not have any clue how to go about identifying the issues that they want to talk, even if the separation is an amicable one and the parties expect divorce. A good, experienced divorce attorney can help you in identifying the issues that you will need to talk about with your spouse to reach a comprehensive agreement and international settlement.
