Question

I would like to file a divorce action. Is there any reason to hire a lawyer or can I do it myself?

!
Answer

You can do it yourself if you have a lot of time on your hands and are willing to take big risks long term over saving some money short term. A divorce filing in the United States is a complicated process. There are many loopholes for the unweary. If you and your spouse live in different states or countries, the issue of what jurisdiction is best for you can only be determined by am experienced lawyer. A lay person may not fully understand his or her rights and inadvertently lose important benefits of marriage to which she may be entitled!
