About This Information
This information is for people who will not have an attorney to help in a divorce or parental rights and responsibilities case.
A person who goes to court without a lawyer is said to be pro se. There are many reasons to go to court without a lawyer, but anyone who does is taking certain risks.
Before filing a divorce or parental rights case on your own, or responding to a case filed by your spouse, we urge you to speak with a lawyer. If there is no way for you to hire a lawyer, call Legal Advice & Referral Center (LARC) at 1-800-639-5290 or apply for help online.
If you choose to use this information to help you appear pro se, you do so at your own risk. We have tried to make this information as useful as possible, but it is not a substitute for legal advice or representation. We cannot be held responsible for your use of this information.
Avoid hasty decisions! No matter how anxious you are to be done with this case, the long term effects must be carefully considered.
