Do I really need an attorney to go through a divorce?

Oftentimes people want to know whether or not they need an attorney at all to go through their divorce. And I tell people all the time, why don’t you sit down for an hour with an attorney at an hourly consultation and just listen to the ideas that our attorney has. Oftentimes what you think is a great idea is a very good idea. But there might be some other creative solutions and options that an attorney who knows the courts and who has practiced for a long time could tell you about and talk to you about. And you might not have even known that.
