Should I Hire an Attorney to Represent Me In My Sacramento Divorce?

by | Jan 12, 2014 | Firm News |

If you are involved in a Sacramento divorce or Sacramento Family Law case, you have probably come face to face with the question of hiring an attorney. We strongly suggest you hire a divorce attorney to help you in your Sacramento divorce, even if the cost is high.

There are many important reasons you should hire a Sacramento divorce attorney. Because you have many critical decisions to make in your case, you need an objective, outside legal expert who can advise you of your legal options and evaluate which decisions are best for your case. Your Sacramento family law lawyer should help you set aside painful emotions and empower you to make important strategic decisions affecting your case and your life after the conclusion of the divorce. Many times the case issues such as child custody, child support and asset division can become emotionally charged and the parties will be tempted to make rash decisions that will hurt in the long term. A Sacramento divorce attorney can be invaluable in helping you make these decisions thoughtfully in an otherwise pressure-filled situation. An attorney can even help you if you and your spouse are being friendly and working on agreeing.

Our Sacramento divorce attorneys can help you present your case in court. The Sacramento family law judge is far more likely to take your case seriously if you have an attorney representing you. Also, if your spouse has an attorney, you do not want to be placed at a disadvantage in the judge’s eyes and you want to avoid having your spouse’s attorney taking advantage of you.

Finally a Sacramento divorce attorney can help you draft critical legal paperwork that is required in court. The documents needed in court can be overwhelming, confusing, and sometimes even nonsensical to the average person. Our Sacramento divorce attorneys are trained to help you complete proper paperwork and keep your divorce case moving through the court system. Also, our Sacramento attorneys can help you minimize mistakes in paperwork that could unintentionally slow your case down.
