Can I represent myself in family court in Florida?

DIVORCE ATTORNEY NAPLES/FORT MYERS | FAMILY LAW LAWYERS FORT MYERS

You can but we would not recommend it. You would be held to the same standard as a licensed attorney in the state of Florida. The court will not help you or do any handholding whatsoever when it comes to the rules of evidence. You will have to know how to introduce things into evidence, how to keep things out of evidence. What are the proper objections to be made? All of those things that you will have to know, and you would be fighting at an unfair disadvantage if you are going against a licensed attorney in the state of Florida.
