Do I need an attorney to get a divorce?

There is no legal requirement to hire an attorney to get a divorce in Texas.  However, pursuing a divorce without one is never a good idea. An attorney represents your interests and remains your committed advocate throughout the divorce process.  Most divorces involve property, distribution of debt, child custody, and the paperwork that accompanies a marital status change.

A quality attorney will assure these issues are handled in a fair and professional manner. Having a lawyer will reduce the stress of a very stressful situation and will help in managing the inflamed emotions that usually accompany a divorce. Hiring a lawyer does not mean that you expect conflict in your divorce proceedings. It does mean that you take the dissolution of a marriage seriously and intend to make the process fair and equitable.
