Divorce and Unrepresented Spouses

As your Mahopac divorce lawyer and New Fairfield divorce lawyer, I frequently encounter clients’ spouses who do not retain an attorney.   Separation agreements with spouses who are unrepresented by counsel are more likely than agreements where both parties have counsel to be invalidated by courts as unconscionable or taking advantage of the unrepresented party.  To minimize the risks of this happening, I advise pro se spouses in every written communication to obtain independent counsel, and before talking to them in person or on the phone, I will confirm they want to proceed without an attorney . I also advise them that  I am not their attorney, and that anything they tell me is subject to disclosure to my client.  The agreements themselves has in bold letters in numerous places that the unrepresented spouse is aware of his or her right to counsel.

As of the date I wrote this entry, I have never had an agreement invalidated by a spouse.
