Why spouses should not share a divorce attorney

For many Florida spouses, the end of their marriage is not expected to be a bitter or highly contentious affair. Plenty of couples are content to simply go their separate ways and want to process their divorce with as little acrimony and stress as possible. To that end, some will consider using one attorney to complete the entire divorce process, in the belief that this will further reduce tension and also lead to lower legal bills. In reality, however, there are plenty of reasons why spouses should retain separate legal counsel, no matter how cooperative the divorce might be.
