Do I Need an Attorney for my Divorce?

When going through difficult and trying times such as considering a possible Divorce, many questions and concerns come to mind. One of the most common questions our potential clients ask is, “Do I need an attorney?”

Arizona law allows for applicants in civil cases to represent themselves. However, a divorce is often very stressful and emotional. An attorney will guide you through the process and provide you with realistic expectations. Even when you are self-represented (“pro se,”) you must abide by the same procedural rules taught to lawyers in law school. Though hiring an attorney may seem expensive, an attorney can save you thousands of dollars in the long run. If your spouse has hired an attorney, you are at a disadvantage when representing yourself. An attorney can tell you what your rights and expectations should be regarding spousal maintenance (“alimony”), child support, parenting time, and the division of your assets.
