A divorce lawyer serves two important needs: (1.) identifying and researching the legal issues and (2.) obtaining the necessary information to present to the court.
You can pursue one of two avenues to obtain a divorce. The first eliminates a substantial amount of court involvement.
A noncontested divorce avoids the adversarial system of litigation. The divorce agreement is drawn up outside of the court and then submitted to the court. It is quicker, cheaper and is designed to avoid the emotional trauma of destructive disputes.
A contested divorce involves disagreements over either assets, custody, or both. It is an adversarial system premised on the idea that the people getting divorced have polarized and adverse interests.
