Do We Need A Divorce Attorney?

 your spouse wants to negotiate a marital settlement agreement
 without a divorce attorney, should you do so? This
is generally a bad idea for several reasons.

First, the
 law can be very complicated. Unless you know what your
 legal rights are, you may get a bad agreement. Second,
 in some relationships, one spouse is much more powerful
 or legally sophisticated than the other. A good lawyer can equalize 
that relationship. You can, however, suggest that your 
divorce be mediated which is almost always your best course of action.
