If I qualify for half of my husbands pension can I file on my own?
If I qualify for half of my husbands pension can I file on my own? Do I have to have a lawer?
Thank you for your question,
The question isn’t do you have to have a lawyer, but SHOULD you have a lawyer. And the answer is that where there are pension benefits that need to be divided, you should definitely have a divorce attorney handle your case.
