Q: Do I need an attorney in court?
A: You may take care of your own case in court, but judges will hold you to the same rules of ethics, rules of conduct, and standards of procedures as a licensed attorney. Mistakes can have serious consequences and impact you for the rest of your life.
Q: Can I handle my own uncontested divorce case?
A: Yes, if you fully understand domestic laws and civil procedure. You must be aware that, if the documents required by the judge are incomplete, the judge may refuse to grant your divorce.
Q: Can I handle my own bankruptcy case?
A: Yes, if you have a full understanding of the federal laws of civil procedure and the bankruptcy court’s local rules, as well as federal laws related to bankruptcy (U.S.C. Title 11) and both state and federal law related to the exemption of property. You should be aware that, by filing a bankruptcy case, all of your property becomes subject to the bankruptcy court’s jurisdiction.
Before you file a bankruptcy petition with the court, you should fully understand whether you are placing yourself in jeopardy or losing any of your property to the bankruptcy trustee. You should also fully understand any debts that may be excepted from discharge and the effect of the bankruptcy filing on secured debts (i.e., creditors that have collateral for their loan).
