Why People Hire Attorneys in Contested Divorces

The Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale is a strong psychological tool used to diagnose a person’s stress levels. Unsurprisingly, the death of a spouse is the highest-rated stressor, and divorce is the second-highest stressor in existence. Therefore, there is clinical evidence that proves what we’ve known all along: divorces are painful and difficult.

Thankfully, you don’t have to go through the process alone. An experienced Dayton divorce attorney is ready to assist you in this treacherous journey. However, if you’re unsure about hiring an attorney for your case, here are common reasons people hire representation during contested divorces.

Representation Could Impact Outcomes

The main goal of hiring a divorce attorney is to impact the outcome of the process. Knowledgeable divorce attorneys can help judges understand the circumstances of past familial relationships, helping them make the best decisions for all parties involved.

Without an attorney, securing a fair and just outcome is nearly impossible, especially if your spouse hired an attorney. Therefore, if you want your voice heard throughout the proceedings and to have a say in your outcome, representation may be the best choice to accomplish this goal.

Representation Gives You an Ally

If you are served divorce papers, you may feel like no one is on your side; however, a trusted divorce attorney will be on your side and will fight for you at every step of your case.

If your divorce journey just started, your head is most likely spinning trying to imagine all this process entails for you and your life. However, your potential representative has walked this path many times before.

Representation Knows the Law

What’s the difference betweenlegal and physical child custody? Is divorce mediation the right choice for you? Did you know that property division in North Carolina isn’t a fifty-fifty split? These things are all essential aspects of the divorce process, and if you don’t know the intricacies of each and every one, you could end up cheating yourself out of a fair settlement.
