The high cost of retaining a lawyer in the family-law process forces many people to mortgage their homes, take out significant loans from banks, and borrow money from friends and family members. For those who don't meet the requirements to obtain Legal Aid, high legal costs make the court process inaccessible. You can self-represent in the family-law court. However, the court process can be complicated, confusing, and frustrating. Individuals who self-represent are responsible for informing themselves about the court's procedures. They are held to the same standard as parties who have legal representation.
