Owing to cuts in legal aid, many people now choose to represent themselves in court. The legal term for self-representation is ‘litigant in person.’ Yet, while it is perfectly possible to file your own court documents and argue your own case in a family law court, it is wise to be aware of the pitfalls.
Divorce is a complex legal process charged with intense emotions. Without understanding the details of your legal position, you can pursue a hopeless case or end up with a poor settlement. In both instances, you will end up paying or losing more money than you would hiring a specialist and experienced family lawyer. A good family lawyer will always act in your best interests, as well as offering you guidance, comfort and protection at a stressful time in your life.
Having said that, some people have no choice other than to represent themselves. In this case, we would offer the following advice:
