    3 Dangers of not Having an Attorney in Your Divorce

    Going through a divorce is complicated enough without having to navigate the legal waters by yourself. When you go through divorce proceedings, you need someone who is on your side to protect your interests. You also need someone who knows how to do that legally. There are some things that can happen when you don’t have a lawyer in a divorce.

    1. You can lose custody of your children
    Divorce can get ugly. If your spouse has a lawyer who can navigate the system better than you can, you might lose custody of your children. We all know the legal system can be biased, but with the right legal defense a joint custody agreement could be in your near future.

    2. You could lose your retirement
    You have worked hard for twenty or more years. You have saved and earned that 401 K, but in a divorce, it’s highly likely that you could lose everything. All it takes is a little legal maneuvering and a good sob story and half of it belongs to your spouse. However, with good lawyer on your side, you can make sure that your hard-earned money stays your hard-earned money. Now division of assets can still be a factor, but you are much more likely to keep more of what’s yours with a skilled lawyer doing your fighting for you.

    3. You lose your dignity
    There are few legal cases that get messier than a divorce, and the other party is likely to try to pull every skeleton out of your closet and even make a few up. If you have a good legal defense, then it’s unlikely that those skeletons, real or not, will see the light of day. A lawyer can help make sure that both parties are on equal footing.

    Having a lawyer to help you with your divorce case will make sure you get the best deal possible. In addition, a lawyer can advise you on how to go about an equitable division of assets as well as keeping custody of your children and your dignity. There’s nothing more important than getting through a divorce as quickly and painlessly as possible. Contact Attorney Ronald Kossack today to get started!
