Danger Of Do It Yourself Divorces In Alabama

Many individuals who consider divorce are concerned with the costs. As a result, we are often asked: "Why do I need an attorney to help me with my divorce?" or "Can't I do this myself?"

The short answer is that you are not required to have an attorney represent you during a divorce. However, the risks of not of having a dedicated, knowledgeable lawyer on your side almost always outweigh costs.

What Are The Risks?

Marriage is a strong institution between two people, and its ties are not easily severed. The divorce process is complex and requires strict attention to many minor details. Anyone inexperienced with the divorce process in Alabama could struggle with paperwork, meeting deadlines or protecting his or her rights throughout the proceedings.

Examples of common mistakes made by non-attorneys include:

  • Filing incorrect or incomplete paperwork
  • Failing to object to the opposing party's demands
  • Missing important deadlines
  • Ignoring issues the court may deem important
  • Being unfamiliar with the law

In addition, many non-attorneys find it difficult to negotiate issues related to child custody, child support, alimony and property division. Too often pro se litigants are taken advantage of by more experienced attorneys.

We will be there to protect your rights and ensure you obtain the best outcome possible. We will not allow the opposing side to take advantage of you.
