Good Reasons to Hire a Divorce Attorney – Different States – and Even Different Counties – Have Different Rules!

10735083_sAgain, this is often a problem because of information found on the Internet. Many people do not realize that every state has different rules for all aspects of a divorce proceeding; everything from how to split marital assets to spousal support to child custody can vary widely across the country. In addition, each county within the same state has its own “local rules.”   A county’s local rules can require additional forms that another county does not require, some counties require mediation before coming to court, some do not, and many counties have different deadlines for different things. It is important that you have a skilled attorney who is licensed in your state and familiar with the county you live in to make sure you know what the applicable rules are for your situation, at both the state and county level!
