Has anyone here completed their divorce without lawyers? It’s amicable between both of us and we are agreeing of the separation of assets. Do I still need to get a lawyer or can I do this on my own?

Married almost 23 years and now separated but still living together (though on the road 3/4/5). Both kids are grown. I know whether we reconcile or split, we’ll be ok. Need to figure out next steps

Divorce or not? Loveless marriage, but love our 2 children and enjoying being close to them. Seeing my brother struggle with joint custody and think this is not for me. Too lazy/busy to rock the boat.

Has anyone experienced your spouse/ex turning your kids against you? My toddler son is aggressive towards me and uses words not normal for toddler vocabulary. MIL also adding fuel to the fire.
