Look, I am a divorce attorney so don't expect me to recommend or endorse you being your own attorney. While you know the facts and truths of your circumstances better than anyone else ever will, the mechanics of getting a marriage dissolved can be tricky.

The devil is in the details. How debt obligations are dealt with is a huge problem. With the current economic climate, issues related to the repayment of debt, as well as lack of credit, are tough to tackle. Does completing a quitclaim deed alleviate your obligation to pay the mortgage? Absolutely not. It is amazing how often that mistake is made. What if your soon to be ex is eligible for bankruptcy... will the joint debts he agrees to pay be discharged leaving you responsible to the creditors? Maybe, but there are things that can be done in crafting the divorce settlement order that offer you protections.

If kids are involved, then for too many reasons to list - GET AN ATTORNEY! Maybe you can't afford an attorney with a high hourly rate to handle the entire case start to finish, but you can't afford not to at least have a consultation regarding the child-related issues.
