Do I Need A Collaborative Divorce or Family Law Attorney in New Jersey?

Technically no, the Court allows Parties to represent themselves in Divorce proceedings. It is wise to consult with an attorney since you might not be aware of some issues that need to be resolved and if you get divorced without an attorney and discover the mistake later it might be either too late to correct the mistake or very costly to do so, much more than if you had handled it correctly in the first place through an attorney. No matter if you consult with a River Edge attorney, Teaneck attorney, or an attorney from your county in New Jersey; it is something that should be considered when decided to go through with a divorce case.

When Not to Hire a New Jersey Family Law Attorney

If you have no children, no joint assets or liabilities, both of you have the means to support yourself, there is no name change, it is a short term marriage and you are proficient with legal documents then you might not need an attorney.

Imagine Your Bergen County Lawyer as an Insurance Policy

Whether you depend upon a Paramus lawyer, North Arlington attorney, River Edge attorney, or Teaneck attorney; you can consider them a type of insurance policy. No one wants to spend money on legal fees, but if you don't, it could be very costly later. Often a single unresolved issue can cost thousands more to address after a divorce. Many times you will not even be able to reopen the divorce case at all to address an issue that you missed by doing it yourself.
