Can I save money by representing myself in court?

Minimizing Costs of Divorce

In addition to the parties agreeing on issues of disolution of the marriage in a divorce situation, another way to minimize the cost of divorce is to represent yourself in court. The party filing for divorce will have to pay what is called a docket fee, which includes court costs, however, if the parties can agree to resolve all matters of the marriage, this can be a way to obtain a cheap divorce and resolve the issues in the matter. Sometimes, if the nature of the disolution is complicated or involves children, it might behoove both parties to consider having a legal professional look over any documents you obtain online to make sure both parties are protected. However, this fee is usually minimal, especially if the attorney does not have to file an entry of appearance on behalf of one party or the other.
