When couples desire an amicable divorce, sometimes they prefer not to retain lawyers. This is understandable because their divorce settlement is usually amicable, and the attorneys can be expensive. They might think that having lawyers in the divorce case is unnecessary because their divorce is amicable. Or, they worry that their partner will view the presence of an attorney as adversarial. But, there are times when an amiable divorce does not necessarily involve the involvement of an attorney.
