You may do as well by yourself as with an attorney. It all depends upon which court commissioner you draw and how well you are able to speak for yourself. My advice is to retain an attorney because temporary orders can often become permanent ones. Temporary orders are very important. If your husband obtains full custody and placement, he may well ask you for child support.
Some judges usually agree with a DA's recommendations, others do not. Judges are free to impose a sentence as they see fit. They are not bound by anyone's recommendations. However, they often give great weight to a DA's recommendation unless the defendant shows why that would be unfair.
Definitely. The purpose of maintenance is to allow a spouse to enjoy the kind of lifestyle they had during the marriage. If she is inheriting that kind of money she has no need for maintenance. be sure and talk to an attorney so you get your way in court.
