How To Divorce When Money Is Tight | Santa Clarita Divorce
Is money tight, but you still need to get divorced? I have lots of people tell me that money is an issue and they can’t afford to get divorced. That is why they are calling me to begin with.
I just got off the phone with a lady who said she is not sure if she should hire and attorney for her divorce. I asked her one question to help her decide. I asked, “Do you have $10,000 to $15,000 laying around to spend on an attorney”? Of course she said no, and I believe that most people would say no. Even if you did, is this what you would want to spend it on?
Money is tight for a lot of people these days, and this is exactly why I started this business of providing affordable divorce services in Santa Clarita.
Look, I worked for a divorce law firm in Santa Clarita. I can tell you that 90% of the folks that hired a law firm, did so by paying for it with a credit card. This means that they could not afford it. If you have to go into debt to get divorced, you are cannot afford it. All you will be left with is more debt to pay off.
The (not so funny thing) about the cost of hiring an attorney is when people would receive their bills from the attorney office. The phones would ring off the hook when people found out how much the previous month of attorneys fees cost them.
We would routinely have people call the law firm and say how they can no longer afford to be represented. The fact is, they never could afford to hire a law firm. They were just blinded by anger and emotion which drove them to hire an attorney for their divorce. The bill is what snapped them out of it.
If money is tight and you need to get divorced, give us a call. We have been providing affordable divorce services in Santa Clarita and helped 1000’s of clients negotiate their divorce without the need of hiring a divorce attorney or going into debt.
