Going through a divorce can be one of the most arduous and difficult times in your life. While some couples are able to settle amicably with limited litigation, others go through long and intricate court proceedings. Trying to go through a divorce without your own personal divorce attorney isn’t a wise move. Alan Billian has years of experience providing divorce lawyer services throughout Maryland, and we wanted to take a little time today to talk about how you can find the correct divorce attorney for you.

Are You and Your Spouse Still Amicable?

If you and your significant other can still sit in a room and talk, then you’ve already got a leg up on a lot of other couples. If you and your spouse are willing to work together, you won’t need to spend as much time in court, and instead most of your time will be spent ironing out details.

While it is possible to go through this process without a Maryland divorce attorney, having an attorneys help can speed the process up and help both parties understand every aspect of the divorce.
