My husband got deported back to Mexico about 14 years ago and I haven't heard from him since
If you want it to have things go as smoothly as possible... you could represent yourself, but as it has been said, the only problem would be ... you’d have a fool for a lawyer.
No one should ever take action based on a response to an AVVO question since meaningful legal advice has to take into consideration factors that have NOT been disclosed or discussed.
You do not say if there is real estate, if there are children, etc., which is something to discuss with an attorney to help you.
We are allowed to provide limited scope representation, which is doing your paperwork only, but even then you would need to pay the attorney you hire to do the paperwork for conferencing with you to make sure what is in your paperwork is true and correct.
The foregoing is general information only, and this communication does not create an attorney-client relationship. Always conduct a detailed, in-depth, in-person consultation with an attorney before deciding on a legal course of action, since meaningful legal advice has to take into account considerable factors that have not been disclosed or discussed.
