Acting for yourself in Family Law proceedings (‘Litigants in Person’).

Any online search will generate an array of information, cases and legal jargon. Our team are experienced and can centralise the process for you. Even the Judiciary’s own Practice Guidance recognises that:

‘Most litigants in person are stressed, worried and operating in an alien environment. They are trying to grasp concepts of law and procedure about which they may be totally ignorant'.

Acting for yourself

They may well be experiencing feelings of fear, frustration, bewilderment and

disadvantage, especially if appearing against a represented party. The outcome of the case

may have a profound effect and long‐term consequences upon their life.

They may have agonised over whether the case was worth the risk to their health and

finances, and therefore feel passionately about their situation.

The stakes couldn’t be higher where children and family finances are concerned.
