Bucks County Family Law

Can’t I just proceed Pro Se (divorce without an attorney)?

Absolutely! Under Pennsylvania law, parties in a divorce are able to proceed pro se — that is, without an attorney — if they wish. There are significant drawbacks to doing so, however. Studies have shown that spouses filing for divorce without an attorney often fail to efficiently proceed with the divorce and can remain in legal proceedings for months, if not years. Further, the other aspects of a divorce, such as custody, are not simple matters. You are at greater risk of an unfavorable ruling if you are not represented by an attorney.
