Can we both use one attorney in a Missouri divorce?

Yes and no. In most uncontested divorces, only one attorney is involved, but that attorney can only represent one party. The other party is technically unrepresented, and the attorney involved is not the attorney of record for both spouses. However, a skilled divorce attorney will be able to still assist the unrepresented party with working through the case, as well as answer their questions, without actually providing legal advice to that party or breaching their attorney-client relationship with the client.
