The Biggest Issue Regarding Self-Representation In A Divorce Case


What is the biggest issue regarding self-representation in a divorce case?

The most troublesome issue I encounter regarding pro se litigants is poorly drafted orders, invariably, I come across orders every year where the parties were pro se and drafted their final decrees themselves. This is due to their lack of knowledge and training, have post-divorce issues regarding enforcement other orders because they were not properly drafted and entered. This is a real problem that ends up as an unnecessary expense because they will need to pay a lawyer to go back and correct the documents which could have been avoided entirely had they secured the services of an attorney from the outset. I’ll be frank, legal representation is not free it is a valuable service one requiring years of training and significant financial investment.
