Making Your Own Decisions vs. Hiring a Lawyer

You will not always need a lawyer for every divorce. Individuals who can resolve legal issues with their partners can go ahead on their own.

 They will make key decisions in the division of property, child support, and child decision-making and parenting for minor children. This option of working together with the partner can benefit both parties as they save time, money and have better control of specific divorce issues. However, it is always recommended that you seek advice from a divorce lawyer before signing any agreement to ensure your interests and rights are protected.

Working with a Divorce Lawyer in Ottawa

As discussed above, divorce cases involve intense emotions, and they are complex in nature. Therefore, you will likely require a lawyer by your side to offer advice and handle all legal issues involved. Mainly, you will be hiring a lawyer to help you and your partner work out the agreement or defend you against your spouse in court. Thus, it is essential that you inquire whether the specific lawyer prefers collaborating or fighting in court, whether they would advise seeking settlement outside court, and their track records in handling such cases. The best lawyer for you is the one who advocates for your interests.

What a Divorce Lawyer Can Do for You

Considering the potential legal risks and problems, it is clear that one needs a divorce lawyer to check the agreement even in an uncontested divorce. The lawyer will: 

  • Attend mediation with you (if necessary), 
  • Draft agreements, 
  • Offer advice, 
  • File the divorce, and 
  • Attend any court hearings with you.
