Greetings. Yes, you can always attempt to represent yourself in court, BUT it is important to remember that there are no example forms at the court house for a complaint dealing with equitable distirbution or alimony. These two claims are the ones that you need to worry about. I clearly would not advise anyone to do this themselves…as it requires a knowledge of civil procedure, the local rules, drafting, motions practice, etc.
Better to pay for it and get it done right the first time, as you may never get a second time to fix it.
After what you have said about the indecent liberties, I would also caution you that having someone do the child custody issues right would be a key for me! Good luck.
