I’ve recently heard someone in a bookstore telling a group of people why they shouldn’t have their own attorneys, how they can’t trust attorneys, how lawyers will deceive them, and how they should rely more on the organisation to which the speaker belonged. The conversation made me think that people facing separation and divorce need not just any lawyer but a good lawyer for divorce.You can learn more at Charlotte Divorce Lawyer Association.
Reason # 1-What to Know
Under the law you must know your rights, duties and obligations. You can only be represented by a lawyer who was hired to represent your interests. How can you negotiate financial plans for separating and divorcing honestly, if you don’t know what your rights, roles and obligations are? Not understanding what your rights are can lead to your children not having your fair share of money, your fair share of care or your fair share of time. Not understanding what your duties and obligations are will result in more than your fair share of assets or your fair share of help being paid out. Many lawyers offer a special discounted referral rate to encourage people to get advice early and regularly. There’s no need to rely on advice from the backyard fence when you can get professional advice at a fair rate from a knowledgeable, experienced divorce lawyer. In addition, in my experience, the advice on fence in the backyard is typically incorrect. If what you hear is half true, remember, it’s still wrong.
Reason # 2-Advice at backyard
My daughter is divorced. Why can’t I draw on the experience and expertise of my friend? Well, you may be able to do that, but what you need to know is that unless your friend is a licenced lawyer, he she is not qualified to practise law. The knowledge of your friend will be confined to his / her own personal experience. His / her legal expertise is confined to the facts of his / her case and the law as it was at that time. Things are changing. The law does change. Any change to the truth will affect the result or the advice. Modifications to the legislation will also adjust the guidance. Your friend simply lacks the skills and experience to provide sound practical legal advice
