A divorce that we think of as “traditional” involves both parties separately hiring their own attorneys to represent their best interests. This often happens when both of the parties are unable to come to an agreement on issues like property division, child custody, or child and/or spousal support. Depending on the issues to be decided, a traditional divorce can take the longest time of any type of divorce to be finalized. In especially contentious cases, hiring an attorney is a good idea since each lawyer can present his or her client’s interests to the court. Even in a more amicable divorce the parties may be better off hiring an attorney to represent them. Hiring an attorney is often good idea for situations where the divorcing couple has a large amount of assets, property or other complicated financial matters.
