Bed & Board


#1

The main reason that it takes time is because of the time and effort involved with an attorney preparing for this hearing. Also, it generally takes about six months for there to be enough time on the court calendar for the case to be heard.

So if you do not have an attorney and are able to write the Complaint and prepare the other docs yourself and have the STBX served then it is only time consuming right? Or is it ABSOLUTELY necessary to have an attorney?
I have the complaint done and I am going to go for a consultation for an attorney to review the docs but I have no intention of having him represent me. Is it mandatory with this type of situation to have an attorney or is it ok to represent myself?

You can represent yourself. There is no requirement that you have an attorney.

Good luck.

I just wanted to know what makes a divorce from Bed and Board time consuming and expensive? Is it lack of preparation of client or is there multiple court dates?
