Higgins Law Office Provides Guidance for Do-It-Yourself Divorce and Mediation Clients
Offering clients an alternative to a traditional divorce case
At the Higgins Law Office, I know that every case I handle is unique — that’s why my firm draws on a variety of legal techniques that we can then tailor to an individual client’s situation. I provide guidance to clients who choose do-it-yourself divorces, and I also provide effective mediation for couples seeking an amicable agreement on their family law issues. Alternatives to traditional litigation can save you time, stress and money, and with my help, your case will move through the system quickly and efficiently.
Counseling do-it-yourself divorce clients
Sometimes it’s possible to file for divorce without having to pay for an attorney to be there every step of the way. This is called a do-it-yourself divorce and is usually beneficial for couples who do not have children, haven’t been married long and do not have substantial assets to value and divide. Still, despite the simplified process, people find it is necessary to come to me for periodic assistance. Most importantly, we give your paperwork one final review before you send it off to the courts to check for any last-minute mistakes. No matter how straightforward your do-it-yourself divorce may seem, I will make sure you avoid mistakes along the way that could cost you thousands of dollars. The do-it-yourself process can save you thousands of dollars in legal fees, but without assistance from an experienced lawyer, it can also cost you in the end.
Mediating family law and divorce disputes
Family law issues are notorious for the acrimony involved, but in some cases, a harmonious outcome can be reached through mediation. When we mediate your case, we help two parties negotiate a fair outcome that benefits both sides, as opposed to waiting for a judge to hand down a ruling. This can cut costs and avoid unnecessary stress while helping your family to maintain a close relationship going forward. At the Higgins Law Office, I mediate on behalf of our clients in cases involving:
