How To Succeed In A DIY Divorce

We All Need A Champion

If you are concerned about the cost of hiring a lawyer, yet also worried about going through the divorce process alone, you have options. The law firm of David R. Bruegel, P.C., in Mason, Michigan, offers a unique coaching service to help you avoid the pitfalls that many people encounter when attempting a do-it-yourself (DIY) divorce.

How The DIY Divorce Coaching Service Works

The divorce process is surprisingly sensitive and nuanced. Proper courtroom behavior is critical. A single poorly chosen word can open the door for a negative result. Failure to appear and act in the expected manner in the courtroom can cause irreparable damage to a case.

Attorney Bruegel will review your case and inform you about how it will proceed. He will discuss the steps you need to take. Perhaps the most valuable aspect of this service is his coaching on how to present your case and yourself in court. This coaching will be customized based on your situation, the specific courtroom and the judge involved. He will educate you about when you should speak and when you should not speak. He will help you understand the power of words in the courtroom and emphasize how a few well-chosen words can make all the difference. He will assist in scripting your statements if needed.

With coaching, you will understand how to present yourself professionally and properly in the courtroom. Your courtroom demeanor will contrast against your opponent, who may not act with the appropriate reserve and respect.

How Is This Different From Hiring A Lawyer?

While you will get the benefit of attorney Bruegel's decades of experience, you will not have an attorney completing your documents or representing you in court. You will be given a clear path to follow at a fee that is significantly lower than the typical hourly rate you would encounter if you hired an attorney to represent you from start to finish.
