Until now I’ve had a lawyer to assist with interim custody orders and property. Ex had withdrawn from representation to self represent. Should i do the same as now every email he sends instead of to his lawyer will be to mine. I’ll be paying for his and my correspondence. I think he’s relying on the judge siding with the next family consultant and doesn’t see much gain in pursuing representation from here on. My lawyer earlier suggested he might do that and that i didn’t want that to happen as it would get even more costly. I don’t have much savings anymore, should i also self represent at this point?
It depends how complex your case is at this stage, as well as how much time you have on your hands and how much knowledge you have. If you feel you can do it successfully, I would. Lawyers in some cases can be such a waste of money.
