Do I Need a Divorce Lawyer?
When you’re in the middle of a divorce, it can be tough to set aside your emotions and view the proceedings as a business transaction. Sometimes, the issues that need to be resolved can seem overwhelming.
Trying to untangle your financial future on your own can leave both you and your spouse stressed and frustrated with the process – what’s more, you may miss some key elements when you try to do all the work yourself. Keep in mind that once you file the paperwork, you waive all rights to property or alimony. Before trying to file for divorce, ask yourself:
- Do you know the child custody, visitation, and support guidelines for New Jersey?
- If the other party fails to respond, do you know how long you will have to wait before a default judgment is entered?
- Do you have equitable division of property and debts worked out?
- What about pensions and retirement funds (QDROs)?
