I did not ask if the divorce is contested or not. I asked what the forms required to commence proceedings were.
Also, am I allowed to represent myself in a contested divorce in Florida?
please address the second question, am I allowed to represent myself in a contested divorce in Florida. Thank you.
I know it's been said that the person who represents himself in court has a fool for a client. My problem is lack of funds, as is my wife's. Any suggestions? Maybe an attorney to review my filings instead of completing them? I'm a CPA and have worked with litigation support in family law cases. I know my way around the financial affidavit, lifestyle analysis, and equitable distribution schedules (even though these may not be necessary in this case). I think i can cover the filings but may need an attorney. What say ye?
