Thinking about a DIY divorce?

On Behalf of | Oct 30, 2021 | Divorce

There are numerous things in life you can do yourself, but working through the marital dissolution process in Maryland really should not be one of them. While the DIY divorce trend may be growing, there are benefits to having legal counsel on your side as you work on ending your marriage. Here’s why you may want to rethink a DIY divorce.  

Property division 

If you opt to pursue a DIY divorce, you may end up walking away with property division terms that are not as good as they could be. You may not know exactly what you are entitled to. You may not be aware of all the assets that should be on the table. Legal counsel will be able to help you find all marital assets and fight for your fair share.  

Child custody and support 

You and your spouse may have very different ideas about child custody and support. You may reach terms you think you can live with, or you may just agree to whatever to get your divorce finalized. You should not have to do either. An experienced family law attorney can help you reach custody terms that best serve your family and support terms that truly provide for your kids’ needs.  

Other complex issues 

Outside of property division, child custody and child support matters, several complex issues may arise during your divorce. Guessing your way through it all and hoping for the best will not get you settlement terms that serve your best interests. Having legal counsel work with you as you navigate the dissolution process is the best way to ensure you walk away with fair and balanced terms.
