Problems that arise with Do-It-Yourself Separation Agreements


Many individuals do not perceive any value in retaining the services of a lawyer. They may believe that they are just as qualified to provide legal services, or that a lawyer is simply too expensive, or they may have a myriad of different reasons.

These separation agreements can lead to an immense amount of trouble in the future, and can often end up costing the individuals more than they would have spent on a lawyer to draft the separation agreement in the first place.
