What does a lawyer do that I can’t do?
Written by: Megan Dell
Lawyers have been trained to research, think, and write in a specific way that is widely accepted in the legal profession. Divorce and child custody cases are handled differently in every state and sometimes even between counties in the same state. Lawyers experienced in South Carolina Family Court understand the specific procedures that will apply to your case and can help you develop a strategy that accomplishes your goals with minimal stress.
Further, a lawyer’s only job is to represent your interests. While you can put forth a great deal of effort to represent yourself, it would likely take you more time and cause you a lot of frustration. Divorce and other family court issues take a toll on people, and you don’t need the additional worry of whether you are doing things correctly. Hiring a lawyer can help ease this stress.
