Do we need lawyers if we agree?

Do we need lawyers if we agree?

If you and your spouse agree to everything, or nearly everything, in the divorce process, you may be confused about the best path to take to finalize your divorce. 

Legally, you don’t need a lawyer to get divorced. But if your case has any nuances or complexities, what you don’t know, may turn out to negatively impact you. 

There is a lot of paperwork, and “getting it right” the first time, will give you peace of mind and protect your rights and interests in the future. 

Furthermore, even for simple or basic divorces, the legal system can be complicated and difficult to navigate alone.

That is why, many couples facing divorce, who have essentially agreed to the substantive terms of the divorce, prefer to utilize an experienced divorce mediator to help them complete their divorce.

In mediation, a neutral third-party attorney mediator will:

  • Guide you through the divorce process
  • Explain the legal process
  • Assist you and your spouse in reaching agreements on all issues
  • Prepare and file the necessary paperwork

The attorney mediator will not make final decisions for you and they will not give you legal advice about the terms of your settlement. 

If you and your spouse generally agree on the terms of your divorce settlement, but would like support navigating the divorce court in Nebraska, please contact us today to schedule a consultation with our attorney mediator, Angela Lennon.
