Sometimes, couples don't want to drag a divorce out over months and years. That is why many individuals are trying one-day divorces or do-it-yourself divorces that allegedly chop costs and reduce the pain of the entire process. Interestingly enough, this is not always true.
One divorcee says that she purchased an online do-it-yourself-divorce kit only to learn that the document formatting was incorrect. As a result, she had to have the paperwork reviewed by a lawyer. When she went to this lawyer, the divorcee was informed that if she waited a mere six months to file, she would be entitled to a portion of her husband's pension. She chose to postpone the divorce and was able to recover thousands of dollars on the pension plan that she almost forfeited due to a simple mistake.
While do-it-yourself divorce kits may seem like a tantalizing option, it is important to remember that they are not always the best choice. Many clients realize partway through the process that the do-it-yourself divorce is not able to give them the customized counsel that they need.
A divorce attorney will sit down with you and work with you on your case face-to-face. A lawyer can also do adequate research to make sure that you are taking advantage of all property division laws that are applicable in the case.
