If you and your spouse can come to an amicable agreement about most major issues, handling your divorce pro se could save you thousands of dollars.
For many people, the prospect of an expensive, contentious divorce is out of the question. Many married couples choose to end their marriage amicably and don’t foresee problems with child custody issues or division of property. For these couples, a pro se divorce might be an affordable option.
Pro se simply means that you intend to represent yourself throughout the legal process. It often costs significantly less in attorney’s fees than full representation in a divorce case. It’s not for everyone, but if you feel that you can resolve the issues amicably with your spouse, it may be the divorce option you need.
