The answer is it depends. Legally, you do not need a divorce lawyer. Your life is at stake, but this is not criminal court. If you have virtually nothing to divide, no children to worry about, you can probably do your own divorce.
However, if you have a claim for alimony, or a defense to it, or have children, or assets and debts to fight over, chances are you need counsel. The more issues there are between the husband and the wife, the more likely there is a disputed issue (or several) and you will want someone on your side.
Additionally, you might want other professionals to assure that you will get what you are entitled to. That could be a CPA or even a psychologist. For more information, come in for a consultation.
