Know that even if half of what you hear is right, it is still incorrect. My friend is no longer married. I strongly suggest you to visit divorce lawyer to learn more about this. Why can’t I rely on my friend’s wisdom and experience? You could do so, but you should bear in mind that your friend cannot practise law unless he or she is a licenced attorney.Your friend’s expertise would be restricted to what he or she has personally experienced. His or her legal expertise is limited to the facts of his or her case and the law in place at the time. Things change. The law evolves. The result or advice will change if the facts change. Changes in the legislation would also affect the advice.
Your friend clearly lacks the necessary legal expertise and experience to provide sound legal advice.The sooner you hire an attorney, the sooner you can understand what you need to know about protecting yourself (and your children and property interests). Even if the breakup is amicable and the parties expect a “friendly divorce,” people often have no idea how to find the problems they need to address. A decent, professional divorce attorney will help you identify the problems you and your partner need to resolve in order to reach a substantive agreement and global settlement. We have been able to point out to client’s areas they had initially ignored and concerns that should be addressed in their settlement negotiations, such as life insurance, health insurance, and children’s educational needs, on several occasions over the years. My partner already has legal representation. Is it really important for me to get one as well? Isn’t it appropriate to have the same lawyer represent us both? The response is a resounding no. When I first started practising law 30 years ago, it was illegal for a lawyer to represent both parties of a divorce, no matter how “friendly” the situation was.
