Do I Need To Hire An Experienced Divorce Attorney?

July 6, 2020

Hiring an attorney to represent you during a divorce is advisable but not necessary. If you decide to retain a lawyer, he or she will usually take care of preparing the initial court documents and ensuring they are properly served. Your qualified divorce attorney will also provide you with sound legal advice. Important decisions regarding children, money, property and health insurance are usually decided by a judge during the divorce process, and such decisions are not easily changed.  With so much at stake, it is generally advisable to have a competent family lawyer who is looking out for your best interests.

For those who wish to represent themselves in their divorce case, the Connecticut Judicial Website www.jud.ct.gov provides detailed instructions on how to initiate divorce proceedings without an attorney.
