Is a Lawyer Required for Divorce?

In Texas, legal representation is not required when filing for divorce. However, retaining our divorce attorneys in Fort Worth can bring tremendous value. Here are several reasons as to why you should hire a lawyer for your divorce case:

  • Fear of abuse: divorce on its own is emotionally challenging, but when you are in fear of your own safety, it makes matters worse. Domestic violence is not uncommon and can occur more often if divorce is inevitable. Our legal specialists can help you and your children divorce safely without worry of retaliation.
  • Hidden assets: If you feel that your spouse is hiding assets, they can be uncovered during the discovery phase with the help of our Fort Worth divorce attorneys. Couples with high-net worth often see this incident come into play.
  • Children: child custody cases can become contentious quickly. During these cases, your parental rights are often at risk. Don’t lose custody or visitation rights by not hiring an attorney. We have the extensive experience that you will need to achieve your desired goals.
  • Guidance: the laws in Texas aren’t always crystal clear. Many people get lost in translation when attempting divorce on their own. You will need a divorce lawyer that understands the intricacies of the law and how they relate to your specific issues.

If your spouse has hired an attorney, you will want to do the same. Even if you are in agreement with your spouse, that is not to say that his or her lawyer will be ethical. Protect your best interests and your future by calling the Law Office Of Mark M. Childress today.
