When do you really NEED an attorney to get divorced?

There is no requirement that you have an attorney represent either party in a divorce case, but sometimes it really makes things easier. I've also seen unfortunate things happen to people who don't know what they need to tell a judge. Not everything can be fixed after the fact.

If you have read all of the above, and you want to represent yourself, you can get a lot of forms from www.gwinnettfamilylawclinic.org (provided by Gwinnett Legal Aid), www.gwinnettcourts.com (Gwinnett County Courts' website), and by searching other counties' online forms databases.

If the forms are too much to handle by yourself, give me a call. I'm happy to help!
