There obviously is nothing wrong with wanting to save money, but if you find yourself about to go through a divorce, the last thing you are going to want to do is represent yourself during the legal process. You are going to want to hire an experienced and skilled Tulsa divorce attorney.
While we most certainly would prefer you to retain a Tulsa divorce lawyer from the family law firm of Fry & Elder, the most important thing for you to do without question if you are going through a divorce would be to just take that all-important step of hiring a Tulsa divorce attorney.
Perhaps you are asking yourself why this is such a necessary step. Well, here are a few reasons why hiring a Tulsa divorce attorney is the smart move to make.
A Tulsa Divorce Attorney Can Offer Advice and Options that you might have not even known were out there
An experienced divorce lawyer will better be able to assess your situation and likely know what your chances would be should you take your case to court. This mostly stems from the fact that they will be able to compare your potential case with others they have tried and how judges have previously ruled in cases similar to your situation.
An experienced family law attorney also will be able to navigate an appropriate settlement for you. If your ex-spouse is making a proposal, your lawyer will be able to clearly tell you whether or not you should settle.
A Tulsa Divorce Attorney will be an Objective Ally during what is Likely to be a Stressful and Emotional Time for You
The fact of the matter is, going through a divorce is often one of the most emotional experiences a person can go through. You are going to likely encounter and experience a lot of emotions that range from anger to sadness.
When one is in an emotional state, it is often hard for that person to look at things clearly and objectively. This is where a proven and accomplished Tulsa divorce lawyer comes in to play.
He or she will have your best interests in mind and be able to better keep your emotions in check while serving as a confidant and still remaining an objective third party.
A Tulsa Divorce Attorney Can Take Care of all the ins-and-outs associated with family court and matrimonial law
Unless you have graduated from law school, you likely will not be familiar with the ins-and-outs of the legal system both in and out of the courtroom. While you may think a judge would be understandable to you if you represented yourself, you will still be held to the same standards as a practicing and licensed attorney.
Judges are fair and balanced, but if you are unaware of how to proceed or do not have the proper documents with you, chances are good that you will end up testing the judge’s patience, which could end up making him or her less sympathetic to your cause. An experienced and competent Tulsa divorce attorney will have a clear understanding of the law and the ins-and-outs of all the legal formalities.
