When should I hire a divorce attorney?
You should hire a divorce attorney in situations where settlements are hard to reach between you and your spouse, or if you want to better understand your rights. This includes a wide range of complicated issues, with common examples being:
- Child custody and child support
- Debts owed
- Future assets like inheritance
- Current assets like houses, cars and valuables
You should hire an attorney if you and your spouse are having difficulty agreeing to terms on how to handle these issues.
