Ending a marriage is a life-changing event. It is impossible to go through this process and not experience some powerful emotions.

However, a divorce is still a legal process full of legal details that need to be resolved, from property division to child custody. It would be unreasonable to expect you to set aside your emotions during this difficult time, but it can be important not to let these emotions take control. In order to maintain this balance, it can be crucial to have legal assistance.

Without legal representation, it can be enormously challenging to accomplish the following goals:

  1. Fighting for what you deserve: If are you motivated by revenge, anger or fear when discussing the divorce settlement, you may not be able to properly grasp what it is you want and what you deserve. Additionally, your approach to fighting for these things may prove to be ineffective or counterproductive.
  2. Focusing on the bigger picture: In the middle of a divorce, it can be incredibly hard to see beyond the current situation or your current emotional state. Short-term solutions or victories may not actually be in your best interests in the long run. Further, you can concentrate so much on one detail that you fail to adequately address other pressing concerns.
  3. Finding a fair resolution: There are some situations that benefit from negotiation and compromise. While you certainly don’t need to give in on every request and demand, there are times when making a concession or finding an alternative solution could be beneficial.
