    My daughter is needing to file for divorce.
    I see in Indiana she could file without an attorney, but, is that the right thing to do?
    She has one child, a few cars, most on blocks, very little debt or 401k and mainly everyday personal property.
    Is it best to go with attorney or do it on her own?

    It's best to get an attorney to protect her interests. ESPECIALLY if there are bad feelings on one or both sides.

    It is best to at least talk to an attorney. Sometimes it's faster to file for a separation then divorse. Also sometimes they require marriage counseling before you can file.

    You may be able to YouTube to answer some questions. There are some lawyers that explain things very well. But you will have to find one in your state.

    ALWAYS get an attorney for divorce, even if things are amicable.

    Everyday possessions are trivial considerations...but the welfare and future of a child is priceless. I`d seek counseling.
    Best of luck to all involved,

    Max Damage I'm working on it!

    If it's truly an amicable situation, and there isn't much money, skipping an attorney for both parties makes sense.

    Any other situation, as others have said above, you want at least a consult.

    Here's the problem I've had with attorneys. They hate committing to a direction. Here's the advice you could take this position, you can do this but then this will happen, I've seen where this would work but not in this instance. They don't lead you anywhere, they only provide "options". I hate that. Tell me what I need to do!

    if the daughter and soon to be ex-husband can remain friendly, they should mediate and leave the blood sucking attorneys out of it. Finish it quickly! Everybody loses less in that scenario. Also get the book divorce poison and everyone read it.
