If the spouses have been married a short time, there are no children and there is no property to speak of, it may make sense to do your divorce completely on your own with available forms, possibly paying for limited advice from an attorney to review documents and avoid mistakes. If children are involved or if you have property that needs to be divided (cars, a home, retirement accounts, a business) then it is important to at least seek the advice of an experienced family law attorney to make sure that you follow the correct steps and that you are not making a mistake you will regret later. If there are matters regarding children or property that you cannot agree how to resolve, and especially if you will need a hearing to resolve any matter, it is very important to at least seek the advice of a family law attorney, whether or not that attorney will appear for you in court.
