You file the petition and then your ex pulls some stunt like filing a counterclaim, files some motion, or gets an attorney to fight you. What do you do?You can hire an attorney to help you. Or on the other hand, you can work with a legal counselor, an attorney experienced in family law you hire to help you, by educating you and coaching you on your options and how to accomplish your goals. The legal divorce counselor may, or may not, appear in your case, depending on what you decided to do. But at the very least, you have an experienced lawyer in your corner to help you out.You can then control how much you use the counselor, and you can continue in your DIY divorce case with some level of confidence.
