The question seems silly when you put it like that. But sometimes that makes it clear to people who are trying to do their divorce DIY. You might need some help along the way. Yes, it is entirely possible to do your own divorce. There is paperwork to fill out and file. There are signature, court orders and maybe even a court hearing to attend. You can do it all yourself. In fact, I watched a YouTube video and learned how to use my bike pump. But I would probably not use YouTube and try to build a house. But again, you might want to get some information about your divorce and not hire an attorney. In fact, we encourage education so people make informed decisions for their futures. The problem is that you don’t know what you don’t know and sometimes that is where an attorney comes in handy. There are pitfalls in finalizing paperwork if you do not really understand the terms, consequences, or the legal significance of what you have signed. It becomes a court order at the end of the day and it has significance for your future.
