Navigating Divorce: Answering Your Key Questions

Deciding whether to pursue a divorce is an intensely personal choice, shaped by your unique circumstances. Others can provide advice, but only you truly understand what transpires within the confines of your home. At the Law Office of Bryan Fagan, PLLC, our family law attorneys encounter individuals grappling with this pivotal decision daily. The choice to divorce is seldom straightforward, often arising amid challenging circumstances. In this series of blog posts, we aim to answer some common divorce questions posed to our attorneys by individuals considering divorce.

How Critical is it to Hire a Divorce Attorney?

If you’re a Texan reading this, you likely possess the Lone Star State’s spirit of individualism. While this self-reliant attitude can propel us to success, it may also hinder us if not wielded wisely.

Generally speaking, embarking on a divorce without an attorney is ill-advised. While there may be situations where you could theoretically represent yourself with minimal harm to your case (e.g., a childless marriage with few assets), the risks usually outweigh any potential benefits.

If children, finances, property, or substantial assets are involved, hiring a family law attorney is strongly recommended. While attorneys come with costs and sometimes a less-than-pleasant reputation, not having one can prove significantly costlier.

Every month, we encounter clients who initially attempted to navigate their divorce as “Pro Se Litigants” (representing themselves). These individuals eventually recognize the complexities involved and the necessity of hiring an attorney. This not only entails additional legal fees but also wastes precious time. Lawyers do cost money, but you can recover those expenses. What’s unforgettable, however, is the extended process and the frustration of realizing you lacked the legal expertise necessary for self-representation.

Divorce, unlike other legal cases, encompasses profound life changes—your children, spouse, property, finances, and essential relationships are all at stake. Adding to the complexity is the fact that these relationships are on the brink of transformation. While managing this on your own is feasible, it is not advisable. Hiring an attorney won’t eliminate all challenges, but it will provide peace of mind and alleviate the burden of navigating this transitional phase alone.
