Avoiding the Risks Involved in Self-Representation

Is a Do-It-Yourself Divorce Right for You?

Many people are drawn to the idea of self-representation in divorce proceedings in order to save money. What most people don't consider is the fact that a do-it-yourself divorce may be more costly.

Self-representation may be a viable option for individuals who are married for a very short time, have no children and few assets. For all others, working with a divorce attorney is highly advisable to avoid potentially costly mistakes.

We regularly advise people on the issue of whether or not a do-it-yourself divorce is appropriate.
