Do I need a Lawyer to Represent Me from Start to Finish in my Divorce Mediation?

If you’ve been kept in the dark about your finances throughout your marriage, if you’ve been the victim of domestic violence, or there is an extreme imbalance of power in your relationship, you should probably see a lawyer before beginning mediation or any divorce proceedings.

What About Other Professionals?
Lawyers aren’t the only professionals who can help with your divorce. For example, you may also want to speak to an accountant about the tax ramifications of your decisions and options for saving money on taxes, or you may want to speak to a child psychologist before deciding on a parenting plan.

At Peace Talks, we have lists of other professionals you may find helpful, and are happy to give you a recommendation.
