Most people can make good decisions if they are well informed about their legal rights and all the options available to them. However, the law can be complicated. Many areas of the law are highly interconnected. For example, a separation often involves more than just family law principles. Income tax, property law, pensions, and estate issues are frequently involved too. It is usually impossible to understand how all the pieces fit together unless the whole is seen through the specially trained eyes of a legal professional, who is impartial. For this reason, even experienced lawyers do not represent themselves.
It’s crucial to understand how the law applies to your specific situation. This can only be done by obtaining objective legal advice which is custom tailored to your unique circumstances, taking into account what matters to you the most.
