Why Hire a Divorce Lawyer?
A good divorce lawyer will give you an objective assessment of your situation. As a third-party with experience, you may share with them confidential information that may be difficult to share with even close friends.
He/she will run through the scenarios with you:
- Who is likely to get the property?
- Would you have to sell your HDB flat after the divorce?
- Who is going to get care and custody?
A good divorce lawyer will handle negotiations with the other side for you, and use his/her experience to make sure that your interests are protected. Where you have to attend counselling or mediation sessions, a good divorce lawyer will prepare you for it.
Your divorce lawyer will insist on what is rightfully yours while striving for an uncontested divorce. He/she should be able to advise you on whether demands or threats made by the other side are credible.
Where necessary, the divorce lawyer will prepare you for trial. The courts have a lot of discretion in divorce cases and make decisions based on the specific facts of your case. Hence, an effective advocate will help tremendously where there is any dispute.
When there is a settlement, a good divorce lawyer makes it legally-binding. As a basic service, the lawyer will draft and file into court the Writ of Divorce, Statement of Claim and Statement of Particulars. As part of that service, you are usually advised on the appropriate ground to file for divorce.
