Divorce Without Assets? A Good Lawyer is Still Essential!

January 31, 2023

You might think the term “divorce without assets” means you own absolutely nothing. That’s not always true. In legal terms, assets include everything from your bank account and car to your clothes and furniture. Even if you don’t feel wealthy or have a big bank account, you still own things that have to be sorted out during a divorce.

Why Hire a Lawyer for a Divorce Without Assets?


You might wonder why you’d need a lawyer if you and your spouse don’t have much to split up. Here’s the deal:

  • Protect what’s yours: Even if it’s only a few things, you want to make sure you keep the stuff that matters to you.
  • Paperwork peace of mind: Lawyers handle the complex forms and make sure they’re filed correctly, saving you headaches.
  • Compliance with the law: a layer makes sure that the paperwork complies with the law and all of the legal requirements.
  • Filing with the Court: a Lawyer makes sure that your case is filed correctly, and that all of the paperwork you need for a divorce gets into the system

Choosing the Right Lawyer for Your Situation


When a divorce doesn’t have a lot of assets, here’s what to look for in a lawyer:

  • Experience is key: Find a lawyer who knows exactly how “simple” divorces work and can guide you smoothly.
  • Understand the system: They need to be familiar with the specific family law court where you’ll file.
  • Upfront about fees: Ask about costs right away, so you can find someone who fits your budget.

Small Assets, Big Need for Help


Divorce is never easy, even if you don’t own huge amounts of stuff. A lawyer protects your interests and helps you plan for the future.
