Can I represent myself if I don’t want to use a lawyer on my Florida Divorce?

You have every right to represent yourself. But even if you think your case is really simple you should at an absolute minimum pay for a consultation with a lawyer . It is hard to know what your rights and responsibilities are without using an attorney. If you aren’t aware of your rights you won’t know to ask for them. Or you may end up giving away what you don’t need to. And if you don’t know the Court rules of evidence, you may be precluded from having important testimony or evidence heard or seen. And that could lead to you losing an important part of your case.

Judges cannot waive the rules of evidence rules because you aren’t an attorney. In the long run using a lawyer could end up to be cost effective, and also save you alot of time and aggravation. Be aware that divorces are quite often not as simple as filling out a form that you find on the internet. They may not address all issues on your case. (some of which you may not be aware of) And if the correct language isn’t used in your paperwork, you could have a problem that comes back to haunt you in the future. Remember, the judge is not your advocate and isn’t there to correct any mistakes that have been made in your paperwork.
