Are you a risk taker?
Using forms in your case could be “penny wise but pound foolish”. Candidly, I think forms are dangerous because they may lead to unfair and legally unsound divisions of your community estate. For instance, the value of some assets are not readily apparent, like pensions, profit-sharing plans, and businesses – these could represent a larger piece of a community estate than you think. Maybe you’re willing to give up too much at the front-end to get out of the marriage quickly – this will have long-term effects, especially in possible loss of retirement assets.
If you have questions or concerns about these areas, only retaining counsel will give you assurances that your agreement is thorough, fair and just.
What if you don’t have an agreement after all?
That’s possible, since the “devil is in the details”. My original fee for preparing your forms will not be refundable if you do not have an agreement, however, I will be an immediate resource for you.
At no extra charge I will be available to you to review in greater detail the remaining problem areas you’re having either with your spouse or the “agreement” and I’ll share with you my thoughts about how best to conclude your divorce.
