Do I need a lawyer if I mediate?

The answer is yes.

Stephen Rosenfield strongly recommends that each party retain legal counsel for Independent Legal Advice, (I.L.A.), to review the draft agreement and financial forms.  Separation is often the most costly expense you will incur during your lifetime.  Stephen Rosenfield can refer you to family law lawyers to review your mediated agreement.  Be smart.  Before signing your agreement always get Independent Legal Advice.  Remember, each party must have their own lawyer.
