Answer

Although many court forms are available online to assist parties in obtaining a divorce without attorneys, representing yourself in a divorce is not an ideal opportunity to apply the "penny saved, penny earned" adage. Some of the most costly post-decree cases involve separation agreements and/or orders issued to parties who did not seek legal counsel during their divorce. Complications arising from well-intentioned but poorly drafted separation agreements with respect to property and debt division can have catastrophic financial impact on parties that may or may not be solved after orders are issued. Similarly, parents who cast their dice to a judge to resolve their disputes pertaining to their children often walk away with vague or unenforceable orders that spur unnecessary conflict that causes more harm to children who have already experienced the loss of their intact family unit. Seeking legal advice during a divorce in Colorado is a wise decision - even if it is just a consultation or having an attorney review the agreements that have been reached.
