Why should I hire a lawyer for my divorce? Can’t I just represent myself?
Going through a divorce is a very trying and emotional time in a person’s life. Having the additional headache, stress, and emotional trauma of representing yourself in court is simply not worth it. The court system will allow you to represent yourself but you’ll be held to the same standard as a lawyer. This means that you will be expected to understand and abide by the complex rules governing child custody, child support, maintenance, and court procedures.
Given the new set of laws surrounding divorce in Illinois, having a family lawyer on your side is crucial. Without the help of a skilled family lawyer, your best interests may not be properly protected.
The matters involved in a divorce have long lasting consequences, particularly if children are involved or if significant assets or spousal maintenance is at stake. Property division can be especially complex when there are pensions or other retirement benefits that are involved.
For many couples, the biggest issue in a divorce is the legal and physical custody of children. These issues tend to be highly contested. If children are involved in your divorce, it will be particularly helpful to have an experienced divorce lawyer involved who has years of negotiating custody arrangements and trying custody matters in court.
My focus is on obtaining your objectives
A divorce is complex, and can involve many issues that are interwoven, such as spousal maintenance, child custody, property division, and child support. Every divorce is unique and my goal will be to learn about your primary concerns to develop a plan focused on achieving your objectives.
I understand the uncertainty that arises in a divorce – not only about property, custody, and other matters, but also about legal fees. I work tenaciously to secure client objectives in a timely and affordable manner. This typically means that where matters can be resolved through negotiation (and sometimes mediation), a better and more cost-effective result will arise than resolving every issue at trial. However, I will not hesitate to litigate a matter through trial if an appropriate resolution cannot be resolved through negotiation.
