I am in the process of a divorce. I can handle all the paperwork myself I just need someone to go to court with me because my husbands lawyer is a shark. Can someone give me a heads up on how this process works. If the lawyer I hire only handles the court part of my case however does he or she know what to ask for the day we are in court. Does he/she spend some time before our court date reading on up on what has happened so far?
Also, anyone have a ball park figure on how much something like this costs? Do I just pay an hourly rate? What if I'm only in court 2-3 hours?
