If you and your spouse are having an amicable split and neither of you has chosen to contest anything in the divorce petition, you might think an attorney is unnecessary. There are couples capable of a “no fuss” divorce, but representation from an experienced attorney is still important. The important thing each spouse should understand is that they are transitioning from a couple to an individual again, and as such, they must do whatever it takes to protect their individual interests. Even if you trust your soon-to-be-former spouse to not take advantage of you, strong legal representation is still a necessity.

The concept of no-fault divorce has made it easier for couples to end their marriage. Prior to the existence of no-fault divorce laws, a person was required to prove his or her spouse had done something to cause the breakdown of the marriage. Actions such as abuse, adultery, confinement, lack of intimacy, or abandonment were required to establish grounds for divorce or a court would not permit the couple to divorce.

Most people understand an attorney is an essential part of a successful divorce, but fewer are prepared for the legal issues that arise once their marriage is over. Though you might feel relief following your divorce, there are still a number of loose ends that need tying up before you can officially move on with your new life. A family attorney can help you manage these issues and support you through the decision-making that needs to be done in the weeks and months following your divorce.

Being a divorced family has its challenges, but understanding your rights and putting your child’s best interest first makes it easier. This is true as you transition into divorce, as well as after your divorce is final and your child is spending time separately with you and your former spouse. Laws regarding child visitation are designed to protect children and help families make the best of a less-than-ideal situation. As a divorced parent, it is your responsibility to understand these laws and do your best to ensure the arrangement you agreed to or were given in court is followed.
