Pro Se Litigation – Using the Internet

Posted On May 25th, 2016 by Michael Dunham

This week we’re talking about resources available to you if you have to represent yourself in your divorce case. You’d be amazed what you can learn from doing internet searches. Google whatever question you might have about how to handle some aspect of your case, and you’ll probably be pointed in the right direction. The internet is also very useful in finding sample forms and letters for you to use for particular purposes, from pleadings and motions, to discovery requests, and even settlement demands.

One word of caution when relying on the internet for forms and such is to make sure whatever you’re doing is appropriate in your particular jurisdiction. I would recommend you start with some sort of primer or other overview of the law applicable in your specific state. Nolo.com and Findlaw.com are good examples of resources for this kind of general information.
