It is very expensive to hire a lawyer to represent you in your divorce. There is no doubt about that. There are also alternatives, and no one must hire a lawyer. Many, many people represent themselves in the family law courts. The State of California recognizes this fact, and has invested substantial resources into educating the public on the idea of self-representation.
If you find yourself heading toward the family law courts, and you cannot afford a lawyer, you owe it to yourself to take a look at the online self-help center maintained by the Judicial Council of California /Administrative Office of the Courts. The home page can be found by clicking here. From the home page you can click through to an area dedicated to families and children. There you will find information about child custody and visitation, child support, paternity, and more. From the homepage you can also click through to an area dedicated to divorce and separation, where there is great information on the basics of divorce, separation, and annulment.
This self-help website has pages and pages of information. It is a fantastic resource, available 24 hours a day, and all for free. If you need information and education about California’s family law system please visit the self-help website.
