Welcome! You do not need a lawyer. There is so much helpful information on this site and many people here who've successfully done it themselves. The VJ guides will tell you everything you need to know and as long as you follow them step by step you should have no problem! Many of the people on here who have had lawyers have paid ridiculous amounts of money for them to do nothing. It's just paperwork, it's not that hard and it's definitely not worth spending thousands of dollars on, the process is expensive enough!

Anyone else posting only in Spanish will have his/her post removed. It's English-only in the upper forums. At least provide an accompanying English translation.

In addition, a blanket statement of "You do not need a lawyer!" is irresponsible advice. We have no way of knowing the OP's entire situation, or willingness, or time commitments, or abilities. Yes, it's exciting to have a self-help resource like VJ; however, it's also true that some people absolutely need outside help. We don't know what we don't know. Please keep this in mind. :)
