Pueblo CO Divorce Lawyer – When to Hire a Divorce Lawyer

Saturday, 12 March 2011

blog-logoThe Internet has given rise to many no-nonsense divorce methods, all designed to save a couple the thousands of dollars that might otherwise be spent on lawyers.  While the lawyer-less approach to divorce may be sensible for some people, it is certainly not for everyone.  As a Pueblo CO divorce lawyer, I have worked with many clients who started out with a do-it-yourself divorce, only to end up in court trying to undo the damage. 

Here are some of the scenarios where it makes sense to hire a Colorado divorce lawyer:

  • If your family has dealt with any form of abuse – spousal, sexual, substance or child abuse – a divorce lawyer will make sure that your agreements are written to protect you and your children from the abusive spouse.
  • If you are unsure about whether you can trust your spouse, or you suspect they will try to be vindictive in some way, then an attorney can ensure that your interests are protected.
  • If your spouse has already hired a divorce lawyer, then it would be prudent for you to do so as well. Even if you can only afford a lawyer to deal with certain aspects of your divorce, such as court appearances, you will be much better off with professional representation.
  • Most importantly, if you fear violence or suspect that your spouse may attempt to harm you or your children, kidnap your children, or steal your personal property, a Pueblo CO divorce attorney can issue a temporary restraining order.  A temporary custody order will be necessary in order prevent your spouse from legally removing your children from their home.
