Do I need an Attorney?

There is no legal requirement that you must use an attorney for your divorce, contempt, child custody, child support, visitations issues, paternity cases or any other marital litigation. Due to the complexity of the various family laws and procedures, a person without a lawyer in court is usually in an inferior position. Additionally, even if both spouses or individuals intend on resolving their case through mediation or settlement, failure to use a lawyer can end up causing the most important paperwork involving your rights and the rights of your children to be deficient or improper.
