Knies, Helland & McPherson Law is a modern firm for modern times. Unlike
many firms that only offer full-service legal representation when you
hire them, Knies, Helland & McPherson Law offers legal coaching and
advising services for those who are more inclined to DIY family law matters.
For instance, if the two parties mostly agree on terms and you simply
need to complete the legal paperwork, hiring a legal family law coach
or advisor may be ideal.
Every person has the right to self-represent their case in court. This
right extends from a dispute between neighbors to serious felony charges.
This means that if you would like you represent yourself in court, you
will need to prepare and present cases that concern
family law matters such as divorce, parenting plans, and spousal support.
For those who enjoy the thought of preparing their own case and have managed
to negotiate the terms of a divorce with their spouse, the divorce process
may be quite simple. The court will need all paperwork to be prepared
according to court requirements and filed properly with the court. This
is to ensure that all the terms of the divorce agreement and parenting
plan are in compliance with the law.
To ensure that all the components of the divorce are correct before the
final paperwork is signed, you may want to take advantage of the coaching
services offered by Knies, Helland & McPherson Law.
One of our attorneys will review all documents that you have prepared for
your divorce and check them for accuracy. Your attorney may also give
you insight into areas or topics that you may not have addressed as part
of your divorce. We will even coach you on what needs to be changed or
corrected to make the document acceptable to the court.
Reviewing Legal Terms
A large part of a divorce or legal family issue is to remain in compliance
with certain laws and terms. Your attorney at Knies, Helland & McPherson
Law may suggest that you recalculate a division of assets, terms for child
or spousal support, or make suggestions regarding the parenting plan that
will make the court more likely to grant the divorce. We can also spot
issues that may not surface until years down the road, allowing you to
avoid another trip to court in the future.
When You Need an Attorney
Even when you have the best intentions of preparing a divorce by yourself,
or with the help of friends, it may be necessary to seek professional
legal advice. There will always be some situations where it will be beneficial
to you to allow an attorney to manage the entire case.
Some situations that may require more extensive help from an attorney include:
- A divorce where one spouse hides assets from the other to defraud them
and prevent a fair split of marital possessions.
- A refusal by one spouse to negotiate the terms of the divorce in a fair manner.
- When one spouse’s divorce benefits outweigh the benefits of the other spouse.
- When an agreement cannot be made as to spousal support, regarding amount
and/or length of time.
- When a party was involved in a common law marriage.
- When a party is a same sex marriage that lived together as a domestic partnership
or civil union couple for a time before same sex marriage was legal.
- When either party cannot agree to the parenting plan.
- When there is just too much confusion about the legality of preparing the
divorce documents yourself and you want to make sure the divorce is legal
