Don’t skimp here! Getting things right up front will save you thousands and thousands of dollars (and untold hours) later.
I am not a lawyer fan, but I do know when I need a good lawyer. When I got divorced I got the best I could afford. My ex went low-rent.
My kids have lived with me ever since – you figure it out.
A good lawyer is worth every penny – a bad one might cost you a lot (like your children!)
If you donâ€™t use a law firm thatâ€™s â€œin the knowâ€ at the very start, you will probably have to undo or redo a lot of things. However, this time, youâ€™ll be using $500/hour lawyers, so the couple of thousand bucks that you saved in the beginning is going to look mighty expensive. Lawyers are like oil filters: You can pay now or you can pay later.
