Some 4.2 million Americans tied the knot in 2011. In the same year the country witnessed more than 877,000 divorces. It means for every three marriages a divorce took place in 2011. These numbers are from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The purpose of sharing these numbers is not to scare into a life of loneliness, but to remind you to be prepared for a vastly changed American society where divorce has not been a taboo for many years now.

Despite more ambivalent societal attitudes towards divorce, the emotional trauma of going through separation remains intense. While a lawyer can help little in the way of soothing your emotional wounds, an expert lawyer can make the troublesome territory of legal separation slightly less painful by leading you to your rightful claims.

A lawyer becomes your eyes.

An expert lawyer is a veteran in his or her field. He or she is well versed in family law to guide you. For you, the legal mumbo-jumbo can be near-to-impossible to penetrate. When you decide to hire a lawyer, you essentially tell him or her to translate the dense legalese into colloquial English so that you know about rights.

A lawyer helps you get what you want.

If you are a sentimental movie freak where the protagonist comes to court prepared after a night’s study and wins a case, here is a hard reminder – such things do not happen. It takes years of hard work and study to parse through the extremely complicated American legal system. By hiring a lawyer you are essentially getting that expertise on your side. This is crucial in getting a divorce settlement on your terms.
