I am getting a divorce. Do I need to hire an attorney?
It depends on the facts of the case. For example, if you have been married for a few months and you guys decide that you want to call it quits, then I don’t think you may not need to hire an attorney but of course it depends on the facts of the case. However, let’s say your marriage is a long-term marriage and you are entitled for alimony, you need to talk to an attorney and figure out exactly what your rights are.
Another thing to think of is what is marital assets and what are marital liabilities. You might not know exactly what you are entitled to and what your legal rights are. So talking to an attorney, at least a consultation, to figure out what exactly your right is under Florida law is very important.
