The Biggest Reasons to Retain a Divorce Lawyer for Your Case

When you’re going through the divorce process, you do technically have the ability to represent yourself in your case. However, this could prove unwise in many cases. Here are just a few reasons why you should make it a point to retain a divorce lawyer for your case.

  • Experience in practicing law: Divorce attorneys have a significant amount of experience in processing divorces and working with clients to handle all issues associated with their divorces. They’ve seen a wide variety of divorce situations and know all the steps you’ll need to take in your case, as well as how to get through the process as efficiently as possible.
  • Range of services: Most divorce attorneys will be able to assist you with a variety of divorce-related services, including mediation, arbitration or litigation, and subjects such as child custody, child support, alimony and property division.
  • Spare your sanity: Even if you do have the legal knowledge necessary to get through the divorce process yourself, it could prove difficult to do that while also carrying about your everyday life with the level of focus you need to remain successful at work. You’re already going to be stressed enough during your divorce even with an attorney handling the process for you—don’t make matters even more stressful for you.
  • Get through the process faster: Because attorneys have so much experience in working on divorces, they’ll be able to get you through the process much more efficiently than you could ever hope to accomplish by yourself.

  • "I first came to Ms. Jacquelyn Lutz of Appelhof, Pfeifer and Hart in October of 2016. It was definitely the worst time in my life and she compassionately spoke with me about my options. Ms. Lutz thoroughly explained the laws, statutes, process and what to expect going forward. What was supposed to be one case, turned into three intricate cases that took a huge toll on me and my family. Ms. Lutz represented me in court on all three cases with a vast knowledge of the laws and how to proceed accordingly. During all three cases she kept me informed, calm, gave me resources to utilize, and (most important) gave me a realistic view of what may come next. Ms. Lutz knew each case required a great deal of knowledge and creative thinking on how to legally proceed forward with each case. My family and friends are forever grateful for the amazing representation by Ms. Lutz. I highly recommend Ms. Lutz for anyone needing or considering superb representation for any kind of family law.
