In most cases, it’s recommended for a couple using different attorneys rather than using one to represent both sides especially if the couple has conflicting concerns on the divorce since the attorney might not be able to represent two conflicting sides equally. Using one lawyer to solve two sides with conflicting issues on divorce is hard but there are cases when a couple might be able to use the same attorney such as when the couple is sure they will be able to come into terms with their minor conflicting issues, when they need an attorney just for the necessary paperwork, or if the couple is on the same terms on major issues concerning the divorce. During the process of divorce since it doesn’t happen instantly, an issue might come up that wasn’t there at the beginning, which the couple disagrees on causing the lawyer to transfer one client to another attorney.
