Divorce, while a very common legal issue, is a situation which requires experience with the law. So many issues that seem small can pile up, especially as couples spend more and more years together, collecting multiple assets over time and growing resentments with each other as things begin to dissolve. However, not everyone uses an attorney for their divorce. Some couples are able to work through their issues amicably without the aid of an attorney, but the successfulness of this can depend on a variety of factors. Do you need an attorney for your divorce or is it something you will be able to resolve on your own with your spouse? Take this quiz to find out.
