Are you wondering if you really need to hire a family law attorney for your divorce?

Hi. I’m Marie Drake of The Drake Law Firm and today I’m going to talk to you about why you should hire an experienced family law attorney for your divorce. The first reason to hire an attorney for your divorce is experience. An experienced family law attorney is going to know the ins and outs of court etiquette and what the forms mean, what the strategy is, and what the process is, so you have an idea of how to get through to the other side and start your new life. That’s what we can do for you. Another reason to hire a family law attorney for your divorce process is because we aren’t going to be emotional. Now this could be your first divorce. This could be a divorce that’s happening because of cheating or because of something that is really emotionally scarring for you or maybe it’s your seventh divorce. And we don’t know.

But as a family law attorney, I can be objective and the lawyers who work for me can be objective about your situation. If you continue to be super emotional and it is really hard to go through this, we’re always going to recommend counseling, but we’re always going to give you an objective thirty thousand foot view of your case and how to get through to the other side. Another reason to have a family law lawyer at your side during your divorce is so that you can avoid costly mistakes. And by costly, I mean costly financially and emotionally. You don’t want to make a mistake and get less custody of your children that you’re entitled to. And same with say your spouse’s retirement account that was built up during the marriage, you want to make sure you’re getting your fair share of everything. And so to avoid any mistakes, hire a family law attorney.  Don’t take advice from your sisters’ cousin’s brother-in-law who’s a paralegal in Alaska. Don’t take that kind of advice for Colorado divorce. Talk to someone who actually knows the law. That’s what I would encourage you to do. The fourth reason to hire a family law attorney for your divorce proceeding is to avoid future conflicts. For example, if both sides have attorneys, those attorneys are going to be very thorough in terms of putting together any kind of settlement or parenting plan for you two. Or if there is a hearing, the attorneys can make sure the judge covers what needs to be covered in any permanent order regarding your children,  your finances, and your divorce.

The fifth reason to hire a family law attorney is peace of mind.
And by peace of mind, I mean, peace of mind regarding your assets, your debts, your children, and your future. So, consider what your rights and responsibilities might be according to Google and consider what they might be according to an experienced family law attorney and make a practical choice and have some peace of mind.
