Why Hire a Dallas Divorce Attorney?

Unless your divorce is a simple divorce, meaning that you were married for a short time, acquired little to no assets with your spouse, and never had any children together, the divorce process is not going to be easy. Even if you and your spouse currently get along, divorce tends to bring out the worst in people. Oftentimes, what will start out as an amicable divorce will turn into a long, drawn out legal battle over everything from fault to who gets the television. Fortunately, when you work with a compassionate and experienced Dallas divorce attorney, you will not only get legal assistance, but you will also get an objective third party who understands your pain and who knows what it takes to obtain an amicable outcome in the least expensive, least stressful way possible.

Three Reasons to Work With a Dallas Divorce Lawyer

Like all things legal, a Dallas divorce comes with its fair share of rules, paperwork, and procedures. If you fail to follow even one of Dallas’s divorce rules, you risk having your case thrown out, or worse yet, risk your spouse receiving the judge’s favor. When you work with a Dallas divorce lawyer, you can avoid any unnecessary complications and costly mistakes, and sail through the divorce process as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

Here are three reasons our legal representatives suggest hiring an attorney to help you with your divorce:

A Divorce Attorney Has Experience Negotiating Settlements

Much of a divorce is negotiation. From child custody arrangements to the division of assets, the Dallas divorce lawyers at the Law Offices of Stephen Clark are experienced in negotiating with other attorneys to obtain an outcome that is beneficial for you, your former spouse, and, if applicable, your children. Without an attorney on your team, you may find yourself in over your head are more willing to end the process than to achieve the outcome you initially hoped for.

A Divorce Attorney is Familiar with the Jurisdiction

A local divorce attorney knows the judges and other attorneys within the jurisdiction, which can work to your advantage. For instance, your attorney might be in good standing with the local judge, which may result in the judge having more mercy on you than he or she would have. Additionally, knowledge of other attorneys and how they operate can prove to be hugely beneficial. Familiarity with the other attorneys’ negotiating and fighting tactics might help to prevent costly mistakes or to negotiate more successful settlements.

A Divorce Attorney Can Provide Objectivity

No matter how much people want to deny it, divorce is an emotional journey, and too often people allow their feelings to cloud their judgment. To avoid making mistakes that could cost you hundreds to thousands of dollars, or to avoid allowing the divorce to drag on for months beyond what it should, allow a divorce attorney to use his or her objectivity to guide you toward sound legal decisions and a beneficial outcome.
