Yes. However, of great concern is the fact that a divorce judgment will permanently extinguish certain rights, including the right to equitably distribute your property and the right to spousal support if you do not “preserve” those claims prior to the entry of the divorce judgment. Judges and court personnel are legally prohibited from giving legal advice. Anyone who can afford counsel should be represented in a divorce. Everything you own, including retirement assets, real estate, business interests, commissions, etc. is being divided and at risk. Save yourself some time, frustration, and heartache, contact a divorce lawyer at Paul J. Tafelski, P.C. to assist you with this matter.
