Do I sign uncontested divorce papers? Without having someone look over the papers
1 attorney answer
You absolutely want an experienced attorney to review any papers drafted by another lawyer on behalf of your husband. You may have rights to protect yourself. A marriage of this duration should not be resolved with only one of the parties being represented by counsel. There is no rush for you to sign the papers. No harm will result in you delaying to make an informed decision. The only harm comes when you are rushed to sign papers prepared for your husband. I wish you the best.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
