A lot of people will assume that because their separation will result in a no-fault divorce, they do not need a lawyer. The thing is though, that is not the type of position that you want to put yourself into. You want to make sure that you are retaining a no-fault divorce lawyer. If you are still unsure as to whether this is something that you will need to do, you will want to review the following:
1. You Want The Agreement Laid Out In Legal Documents
Even if you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse agree about everything, you should really make sure that everything is put into a legal document. Never assume, no matter how civil things are now, that they will always be that way. For example, your ex may one day decide that they want different visitation arrangements with the children and just suddenly not bring them home when they are supposed to. They could always file for a modification to an existing order if they want, but having documents detailing your divorce agreement will help keep things the same in the meantime. Such documents will also help clear up any confusion that may later come up over something, such as new debt that pops up.
2. The Divorce Can Be Filed Properly
Divorce paperwork needs to be properly filed at the courthouse. This is to make sure that the papers will get to the judge and get his or her stamp of approval. While the judge is not likely to deny the request for a divorce, especially if this is a no-fault divorce with both people agreeing to it, they are generally a stickler for properly filled out legal documents. If you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse want to make sure that the divorce is finished as quickly as possible so you can each move on with life, you will want to hire an attorney to handle this for you. You both can even sit down with him or her together to discuss what you have agreed to and have the lawyer write up everything for you. If you are not fighting about the terms of your divorce, they really is no reason to hire an attorney for each of you.
Save time and money by retaining a no-fault divorce lawyer to represent you as soon as possible. Call for an appointment for a consultation to get started.Share

Like many people, I once found learning about law very intimidating. My brother went to law school and I remember glancing through a few of his books and wondering if I was actually reading English due to all of the legal jargon in them! However, when I ended up in a sticky legal situation due to accidentally breaking a small law I didn't know existed, I realized that I needed to learn more about the law, so I could make sure to follow it precisely in the future. My brother helped to break down some complicated legal concepts to me, and I have since been studying up online. I want to post what I have learned and continue to learn about law in the future on my new blog, so my knowledge cannot only help myself, but also help others!
