- A skilled divorce attorney
Now you may wonder:
Do I really have to hire an attorney?
Hiring a divorce attorney is not required for divorce mediation attorney in Ontario CA, but it is strongly advised. The divorce mediator will not give any legal advice at all, so if you want to be sure you understand your rights and responsibilities, you need to consult an attorney. Discussing your case with an attorney helps to ensure that you understand what provisions you can reasonably fight for in your divorce agreement and prevents you from unwittingly sacrificing your best interests to pressure or bullying from your ex. Because you will only be having one session with the attorney rather than continual support as you would need during litigation, this service will be extremely affordable.
