Hello and welcome to 60 Seconds with
Sergio. I am your host Sergio Cabanas founder of the Cabanas Law Firm here in Pembroke Pines, Florida. So one of the most important questions that I’m asked is, Sergio, Do I Really Need a Lawyer to Help me With the Divorce Process? Well remember, obviously, you’re asking this question to an attorney who’s going to give you the obvious answer of Yes. To me, having an attorney it’s like having a doctor to help you perform a surgery. You can try to do the surgery or the divorce process on your own without an attorney. You can do the surgery without a professional surgeon. Now, chances are if you need an appendectomy, somebody remove your appendix, well it’s a free country. You can go to your garage with a butter knife and a bottle of Jack Daniel’s and hope for the best. Unless you’re a trained surgeon or a medical professional, chances are you’re not gonna have very good results. Same thing with a divorce. There are exceptions, like for example, if both you and your spouse have very little income or very little assets, the marriage was for a very short term, I’m talking about just a few months. Well there could be a way to do the divorce by just filing some do-it-yourself forms with your spouse in agreement and even then I would suggest that you consult with an attorney to just review the paperwork. It will help the process go a lot smoother. But other than that, other than those few exceptions, I highly recommend you have an attorney
to help you with the divorce process just like I would highly recommend you hire a professional surgeon to help you with any important surgeries. I hope this information was helpful for you. Now remember the purpose of these videos is to provide some general guidance on commonly asked questions.
