My spouse and I are pursuing an alternative method of divorce. Do I need an attorney?
Also keep in mind that some alternative methods of divorce resolution can still be a bit contentious, so legal representation can be advantageous. The need for an attorney varies from case to case, but if you are at all concerned about the well-being of your children or your own future, hiring an attorney is best. Typically, in collaborative divorce, both spouses have individual legal representation, in addition to the team of experts that helps with the divorce negotiations.
