Do I need a lawyer to get divorced?

If you really want to, and if you are able to do so, you can apply for a divorce yourself. In legal language, this is known as ‘acting in person.’

But you will not be exempt from the legal, procedural and formal requirements of conducting Court proceedings. For example, you must ensure that the documents you file in Court are in the correct format, that you have paid the correct filing fees, and that you have filed your documents through the Electronic Filing System.

Most importantly, the Family Court cannot give you any advice on what you should say or do. Only a qualified lawyer can give you independent legal advice on the merits of your case.
