Much legal information is available online but an experienced divorce lawyer can give you advice tailored to your case as well as predictions on possible outcomes of various options based on experience. Furthermore if you choose to consult a legal adviser only after negotiating an agreement and subsequently discover that some of your legal rights are not met it may be difficult or disastrous to try to amend the agreement at that juncture.
