What do lawyers do in a divorce?

Thumbtack Editors
Answered

A divorce lawyer handles negotiations regarding how assets are divided between spouses, as well as who assumes debts. The divorce lawyer can also help establish an agreement for child support and child custody between the spouses. All of this requires research and evidence gathering, as well as compiling and filing paperwork with the court that summarizes the evidence.
