Anyone who goes to court without a lawyer takes a serious risk. These cases can be complicated and it is recommended that you consult a lawyer to best protect your interests, especially if there are issues regarding parental rights and responsibilities of children, property or pension/retirement benefits.
Recent changes in court rules now allow a lawyer to represent you for a portion of your case, which can reduce costs. Read more about "unbundled legal services."
Even if you appear in court without a lawyer, you will be required to follow the court rules. See Family Division Rules.
