My wife and I are modifying our divorce
decree by mutual agreement. I have not been represented throughout. The divorce was final just over a year ago. It has been amicable. The language below is in the “non represented party form.”
Can I remove the “However, I have waived that right?”
Is choosing not to be represented the same as waiving the right?
Is this form limited to this one action?
I don’t suspect anything will ever come of it, but I don’t necessarily want to give up my right.
Here is what the form says:
That I have the right to employ counsel of my own choosing and I understand that it may be in my best interest to do so. However, I have waived that right.
That having been advised of the foregoing, I, the Defendant, have requested that the said Attorney for the Plaintiff, prepare a Joint Petition for Modification of Decree of Divorce which the cause may be submitted without notice and such other pleadings and agreements as may be appropriate.
