As someone who practices Florida Family Law, I know just how complicated and time-consuming it can be. That’s why I always advise people to get a lawyer if they’re separating from their spouse – even an amicable divorce can lead to trouble if they try to do it without legal representation.

Why? There are a number of reasons.

You don’t know what you’re doing. Please, this is in no way meant to be insulting. It’s not that people aren’t smart; it’s that divorce is often an incredibly complicated legal process. Even when spouses are parting ways on friendly terms and they write up an agreement that both sign off on, problems can occur. I can’t tell you how many couples we’ve had come into our Florida Family Law offices because they made some kind of mistake in their thinking, or in the legal language of their agreement and it doesn’t quite say what they meant it to. Don’t unknowingly agree to something that’s going to haunt you for your entire life because you don’t quite understand all the ramifications and terminology of legal agreements.

You’ll end up costing yourself more. When you make a mistake, it’s not something that can be solved with a simple do over. Often mistakes take longer and end up being more expensive than if you had simply come in and hired an attorney in the first place. And that’s not even counting any fees involved with filing and re-filing paperwork and all of the time involved, which can mean more missed work days or money spent for babysitters.

You’ll get emotional. While it’s true that there are people out there who can have an amicable divorce, oftentimes couples underestimate the emotional toll that it’s going to take on them. You’re literally taking a look at your lives together and drawing a line down the middle of it so that every aspect of your existence falls on one side or the other. Who gets what? Why? How often will each of you see the kids? What about pets? If you’re not in our Florida Family Law offices with professionals guiding the proceedings, don’t be surprised if emotions prevail over reason – or if one person simply lets their spouse walk all over them because they don’t want to fight.
