Do I Need an Attorney for my Divorce?

Cindy Best

In Maricopa County, you can get divorced without an attorney. You just fill out all the paperwork and file it with the court and follow their instructions. Sometimes it might be straightforward for your family to do this. But you still need to have all your documents done correctly because the paperwork you fill out will control what happens with your property and children, even if you do not know what you were signing. You also need to be very educated about the transition of your family so you understand your rights, especially about your children. Arizona is a 50-50 state for parenting time and legal decision making, as long as both parents are fit. The issue of whether a parent is “fit” is hotly litigated when you have drug issues, mental health issues and domestic violence. If you have questions about what you are doing, it is always a good idea to seek professional help. Meeting with an attorney will give you a good idea about whether you can go this DIY or whether you need some coaching.
