Why Hire a Lawyer (A Generic Perspective)

I recently asked a guest to write a short post for me on the reasons she felt hiring an experienced family law lawyer was important.  Her post is copied below.  At the conclusion of the post is a short video about hiring a lawyer, which was made by another gentleman.  While both are somewhat generic, they strike similar tones regarding the stress and fear attendant divorce and its process.  The quickest prescription for those emotions is to simply meet with a good attorney.  Like many things in life, having someone “open the kimono” or “pull the curtain back” can make all the different.

Benefits of a Divorce Lawyer

If you are going through a divorce, chances are you need expert guidance along the way to help you through this stressful and emotionally draining process. With all that you are dealing with, trying to handle a legal battle of this nature on your own is not a good idea. A do-it-yourself divorce might seem like a good idea in theory, but it is a much wiser decision to hire a professional attorney that focusses on family law to handle your case.  Hiring an attorney to protect your best interest during your divorce is invaluable.

What Can Be Gained By Choosing a Divorce Lawyer in Fairfax, VA?

Advice That You Can Depend On

An experienced and qualified lawyer will ensure that your interests are protected and that you receive what you deserve.  Having a professional on your side to protect your interests and help you get access to income or retirement benefits that you are privy to can literally shape your future. If your divorce is made even more complicated with disagreements involving custody, support, debts or support issues, you need a lawyer up to the task of litigating those issues.

Lessen Stress

Divorce can be a very overwhelming time in your life. There are so many different unknowns, but you can help manage your stress by simply hiring a lawyer to represent you during your divorce proceedings. Your lawyer will work for you by gathering all the vital information that is needed for your case and filing legal documents on your behalf. You will have the time to focus on your family and your emotions. Because you already have enough on your plate, a divorce lawyer can handle the rest and ensure that your interests are protected.

Avoid Costly Mistakes

While you should hire a lawyer you can afford, this is one time in your life when you shouldn’t “go cheap.”  A skilled lawyer focused on family law can help you avoid missteps and work towards ensuring your complex divorce proceedings are completed to your advantage. Simple mistakes on legal documents can lead to delays or harsher penalties. A lawyer with experience and know-how can help you avoid costly mistakes.
