Why Hire a Tennessee Divorce Lawyer?

Divorce attorneys protect your present and future interests

Deciding on whether or not to hire an attorney for your divorce proceedings depends largely on the circumstances of your marriage. However, it is almost always in your best interest to have a divorce attorney represent you throughout the process. The Tennessee divorce attorney at the Law Office of David L. Scott in Murfreesboro sees countless divorcees come in every year asking whether their divorce can be modified after they finalized it without an attorney.  Unfortunately, we are generally unable to help them and they get stuck with unfair debts and an unequal distribution of assets.

Factors that make having an experienced Murfreesboro divorce attorney on your side even more important

Having an attorney experienced in Tennessee divorce law is your best defense to protect yourself from an inequitable divorce agreement and potentially being unable to get a fresh financial start into a new life.  Not having an attorney represent you leaves you vulnerable to the complexities of divorce law that could come back to haunt you.  Our Murfreesboro divorce attorney offers honest opinions to potential divorcees wondering whether they need legal representation. The fact of the matter is that a small investment in a knowledgeable divorce lawyer can save you tens of thousands of dollars in the long run.

Key scenarios when you need a savvy Murfreesboro divorce attorney represent you:

- You and/or your spouse own a business
- You and your spouse own a home together
- You and/or your spouse have retirement accounts
- You and your spouse have minor children together
- You and your spouse have been married for more than a very brief amount of time
- You and your spouse have debts
- Either spouse entered the marriage with significant assets

What do Tennessee divorce attorneys do for you that you would not be able to do for yourself?

Divorces are more complex than they seem.  In addition to the upfront divisions of assets and property, there are important tax implications that should be taken into consideration. You and your ex may agree on a seemingly fair divorce decree that ultimately leaves you in debt and spending a lot of money on tax expenses.  You need a skilled Murfreesboro divorce attorney to ensure that you understand both the short-term and long-term impacts of everything that you have agreed to.
