Quatela Chimeri, PLLC


Divorces are not just legal battles, they are emotional. They can be grueling and overwhelming. At our law firm, we know it can be tempting to attempt to fight on your own. Representing yourself can seem cheaper and faster. However, this is not likely to be the case.

In our last blog, we went over two things a family attorney will be able to accomplish for you. These are things that you need experience to accomplish. Before you decide to represent yourself, we invite you to read our blogs about what our experienced lawyers can do for you.

  1. Communicate constructively with your spouse's attorney
    1. Some divorces are amicable, but a majority of them are not.
    2. Chances of amiability plummet when you represent yourself. You do not have the emotional bandwidth and experience to negotiate with your spouse's attorney.
    3. An attorney will be able to smoothly negotiate a good settlement for you while acting as your shield.
  2. Discovering assets
    1. Divorces can slow to a crawl when it comes to the division of assets.
    2. If your ex-spouse is hiding assets in order to seem poor, your attorney has the legal weapons to uncover assets wherever they are hidden.
  3. Getting correct child and spousal support
    1. Though you can use calculators online, the the future of you and your children is on the line. This is not the time to DIY.
    2. An attorney will be able to check the math and give you ways to argue for more or less support.
