You can see the importance of educating yourself about the process; reading this book is a good first step. You may then want to hire a mediator to help resolve and negotiate your issues. At the end of a mediation, you can hire an attorney by the hour to give you specific legal advice about the negotiated agreement before you sign it.
Another option is to pay for legal consultations by the hour. An experienced attorney will give you specific legal advice about your case.
