Posted by Manuel A. Segarra IIIMar 10, 20150 Comments

If you and your significant other have come to terms with the fact that your marriage has run its course, it may be time to consider hiring Miami divorce lawyers. In the United States alone, approximately 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. It's difficult to think that your relationship has become reduced to a statistic and you now have to handle the proceedings of a trial. We want to be there for you!

A divorce without an attorney present rarely goes smoothly. If anything, it prolongs the process more than helps you move on with your life. By hiring an experienced and qualified divorce lawyer, this transition will be much faster and smoother.

Why Hire a Divorce Lawyer?

At Segarra & Associates P.A., our dedicated attorneys are ready to tackle this challenge for you. If you're still reluctant about receiving legal help, we have provided five reasons why you should consider hiring a divorce lawyer.

1. Proficient Knowledge of Divorce Law: An experienced divorce lawyer understands Florida divorce laws to help ensure that you receive your fair share of the assets. They also have the knowledge and ability to protect your other interests, such as child support issues and future assets. If you file a divorce on your own, you risk missing out on certain marital property simply because you don't have the legal knowledge to know the assets to which you are entitled.

2. Smooth Process: As mentioned above, filing a divorce on your own is rarely a smooth process. Typically, a mistake is almost always made in terms of forgetting to address a particular asset or underestimate a debt. However, a divorce lawyer will ensure that everything that needs to be presented is done so the first time around.

3.Decreases Stress During the Divorce Proceeding: Trying to handle the divorce process yourself, though admirable, can be very stressful. A divorce lawyer can significantly lower your stress level and give you more time to spend with your family and concentrate on other matters.

4. Discuss a Fair Settlement: A divorce attorney is essential for this portion of the proceeding. Your attorney has your best interest in mind and can negotiate a fair settlement. If there are disagreements between both parties, the divorce lawyer is trained to navigate both contested and uncontested divorces to help both spouses resolve their differences quickly and cost effectively.

5. Avoids Delays: Filing for a divorce requires paperwork, which may delay the process if you decide to tackle it on your own. Some common issues with DIY paperwork include insufficient information and documentation. When you hire a divorce lawyer, the paperwork goes directly to him or her, who will complete the process sooner.

At Segarra & Associates, P.A., we understand that divorce is not easy on anyone. Our goal is to ensure that you move through this challenge as quickly and smoothly as possible with the help of one our dedicated Miami divorce lawyers. Contact us today for a consultation!
