Divorce advice from a non-lawyer is no advice at all
Yesterday, my client told me that his friend advised him to etc, etc in connection with his divorce. With all due respect to his friend, the advice he gave him was horrible. Why his friend, who is not an attorney, let alone a New Jersey divorce attorney, would give him any advice is beyond me. What’s even worse is that my client was ready to follow that advice because his friend, who has gone through a divorce, seems like an expert.
I don’t care who the person is, if the person is not a divorce lawyer in the state in which you are getting divorced, the advice should be taken with all of the salt in the world. In other words, do not rely upon it. Instead, pick up the phone and call a good divorce lawyer and get advice from him or her.
