You might feel that you can’t afford a divorce, but Springer & Lyle might be able to help you and work with you. The fact is that any divorce can be costly, and if you take the risk of representing yourself, your divorce can ultimately be even costlier.
Don’t Try it on Your Own
Most divorce cases will be stressful. There might be considerable tension between the parties, child custody might be contested, income might be hidden to reduce the child support obligation and terms and conditions of visitation can even come to issue. These aren’t issues that you want to address alone while representing yourself. It’s highly likely that you’ll either miss something or experience unforeseen difficulties that will only bring you back to court time and time again in the future. That’s why you need the services of the experienced family law attorneys from Springer & Lyle to represent you in your divorce. All present issues in your divorce will be addressed and attended to, and the chances of the burden and expense of having to return to court in the future are substantially reduced.
We Can Level the Playing Field
Texas realizes that it can be fundamentally unfair if one of the parties to a divorce is financially disadvantaged due to being a homemaker, earning drastically less than the other spouse. Another example would be if one of the parties is mentally or physically impaired. That’s why you’ll want to talk with a lawyer from Springer & Lyle. We might be in a position to petition the court for interim attorney fees. In doing so, your interests or the interests of your minor child might be adequately represented if the court believes it to be equitable, those interim fees can be awarded.
One Lawyer Can’t Represent Both Parties
Remember that your spouse’s lawyer doesn’t represent you too. The law doesn’t permit that. You need your own lawyer to represent your best interests in your case.
If you’re thinking about filing or going through a divorce in or around the North Texas area, and you don’t know whether you can afford a divorce lawyer, contact the family law attorneys at Springer & Lyle for a case consultation. We’ll try to work with you in meeting the needs of both you and your children. You shouldn’t be placed at a severe economic disadvantage.
