The Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer

Do I Need a Lawyer for Divorce?

There are several important benefits to having a lawyer on your side when you file for divorce. Under state law, you have the right to your share of the property and assets of the marriage. Making any agreement without legal help could lead to sacrificing far more than you need to. When our firm takes on a case, our focus is on getting the best possible agreement in place, based upon the situation.

Call our firm, Widger & Widger, APLC today for information about filing for divorce. If you have a simple, uncontested divorce, and you agree with your spouse on all the critical points, we should review your situation and ensure that all the paperwork is in order, and correctly filed, and in a timely manner.

An Attorney Will Advocate on Your Behalf

Another issue that can come into play is state law. Since California is a community property state, the determination about the division of assets can go terribly wrong without an attorney that has the insight and experience to pursue a favorable and fair settlement. A judge faces many divorce cases. It is impossible for any judge to fully understand all of the issues in your individual relationship and your marriage.

In many cases, without a lawyer from our firm presenting your case, the court will be forced to make a decision based upon what is heard in the courtroom. People lie and can hide valuable assets, or make false claims about you, including that you are incapable of caring for children, are abusive, or have committed domestic violence.

If you are not represented by a lawyer that will stand up for you and present evidence to challenge these claims, they will stand uncontested. We advise that you have an attorney if you are planning to file for divorce. At our firm, we have over 20 years of shared experience, and we know state law, and how to work within the system to get results for our clients.
