Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
You are not required to hire a lawyer to request spousal support. A party to a divorce is allowed to represent themselves.
With that said, if your spouse has a lawyer, it may help to have one. You have the ability to file a motion asking the judge to order your husband to pay your attorney's fees if he makes significantly more than you do.
