Is It Worth It to Get a Divorce Lawyer?

If you’re in the midst of a divorce, one of the questions on your mind is likely whether you should hire a divorce attorney. Divorce itself can impose quite a financial burden, so you’re probably looking to save money wherever you can, and attorney fees may seem like an easy expense to eliminate.

Despite the additional costs associated with hiring an attorney, it’s generally a smart step to take. The terms of a divorce agreement can have long-term ramifications on a couple’s finances, so it’s worth it to expend some additional money now to ensure that you’ll be more economically secure in the long run.

Even if your divorce is uncontested, a qualified divorce lawyer should review the terms of the agreement to ensure that:

  • Your interests are protected
  • The agreement will be approved by the court
  • It is comprehensive and written in a way that will prevent additional problems from developing in the future, which could cost you money down the road

Plus, divorces aren’t always as straightforward as they may initially seem, so if an issue arises at court, you’ll want to have an experienced advocate on your side.
