Can I Represent Myself in Dallas Family Court?

While individuals can represent themselves in a family law matter, it is not advisable. Before considering representing yourself in court, speak with an experienced family law attorney. It could save you time, money, and frustration in the long run. Family law cases can quickly become heated and legally complex. If you act as your own attorney, you will be held to the same standards as an attorney when preparing and filing court documents and representing yourself in court. If you make a mistake, your case could be delayed, or dismissed, or you could end up responsible for paying the other party’s attorney fees. Not hiring experienced representation at the start of your family law matter could cost you dearly!
