Pro Se Litigation

Some individuals represent themselves in a divorce case because they:

  • cannot afford to hire legal representation; or
  • become dissatisfied with their attorney and think they can do a better job.

This is known as Pro Se Litigation.

If you are having problems seeing your child under your current visitation order and are unable to resolve this problem with the custodial parent; or if you do not have a divorce decree or court order, Pro Se Litigation may be an option for you. If you plan to represent yourself, you will be responsible for completing and filing all legal forms.
