Why should I hire a divorce attorney?

Why should I hire a divorce attorney?When faced with the reality of a divorce many people question whether or not it makes sense to hire an experienced family law attorney and incur the related costs. I know it may come across as self-serving, but I truly believe that individuals are bestserved and can obtain optimum results when they make the imvestment to hire an attorney who is focused on family law. 
The initial allure of obtaining a low cost divorce from an on-line source or a strip mall “divorce center” is strong. I get it. But the long term costs can significantly outweigh the initial benefit. 
Recently The Durst Firm was hired by a client who used on of the popular low cost divorce options. Now that post-judgment issues have arisen several years later, neither I, the executive-spouses attorney, or the judge are offered much guidance from the underlying documents. The consequence is the need for a time consuming and expensive plenary hearing. The moral of the story is that it’s better to do it right the first time. 
Years of experience have enabled me to address concerns that will likely arise. Doing so can be of great assistance in minimizing post-divorce conflict and expense.
