Good morning. You are not required to have an attorney to request the court order. It could be helpful to you so that you make sure you frame your request in a manner that is more likely to be granted. For example, you will want to make sure request is needed for something other than the ordinary support of your girls because the court will not grant it for costs that are deemed to be the responsibility of the parents; rather you will want to make sure the money is being requested for something not legally required to be provided by the parents...such as private school, camp, etc.
I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!
