Depending on how long you’ve been married, what assets and debts you have to distribute, and whether or not you have kids, you may be able to simply file a completed petition on your own.
Younger adults who’ve been married a relatively short time, rent their home, and haven’t had kids are most likely to have luck with a DIY divorce.
When circumstances are more complicated, it can really help to talk a potential settlement through with an attorney to make sure that everything is in order before you submit.
Mediation is another option for couples looking to avoid the hassle and expense of hiring lawyers.
In a mediated divorce, you’ll agree to work with a mediator who can make sure that all the elements of your divorce are thoroughly addressed and that both parties are fully informed about the consequences of the agreement.
However you decide to approach your divorce, the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you find the best solution for your situation.
