6 Things a Divorce Attorney Won’t Tell You — FYI Divorce

If you can manage it, get through your divorce with as little family law industry personnel involved as possible. Almost every person that works in the family law industry and even your friends will say, “you need an attorney!” Newsflash, they don’t REALLY know and if they work in the industry, they have ulterior motives. […]

I worked on divorce cases, both contested and uncontested in California for many years and I have to say that I agree with most of the points made in this blog post. The family law industry is just that, an industry whose main goal is to extract as much profit as possible.

Going Pro Se in an Attorney’s World – 5 Things to Remember at Settlement — FYI Divorce

Good tips.  If representing yourself in a divorce case be sure to visit the local law library as they will have excellent legal textbooks also known as treatises on various legal subjects including divorce (also referred to as domestic relations among other terms). These textbooks will have valuable information on the divorce laws in your state.

For California I have found that the Nolo Press books are excellent at providing basic information and guidance. For contested cases the Rutter Group Guide for family law is excellent and can be found in just about every county law library in California.  Search for a public law library in California at this link: Search for a law library in California

Readers in other states can search for a law library in their area at this link: Search for a law library in your area

If you are representing yourself in a divorce case in California you can get limited assistance through a family law facilitator in your local courthouse.  They cannot represent you but can often help walk you through the basics. You can search for the family law facilitator for your California county at this link: Family law facilitators in California
