Pro Se Divorce for "Do It Yourselfers"
Achieving a fair and equitable mediated divorce without an attorney or the high costs...
The legal term pro se means, “for oneself”. And if you’re considering a pro se divorce , you probably have questions about your specific situation. Many pro se divorce couples believe they must visit a lawyer to file an initial court action. That’s not true in Florida, where mediation is available even before you file a court action. The Florida Supreme Court certifies mediators to help pro se divorce couples resolve even the most difficult conflicts without ever involving a lawyer. In other words, mediation is not just for uncontested divorces; it is available to help you resolve all the issues that you have been unable to resolve on your own and cross the "finish line" without the stress, contentiousness, and costs of traditional attorney-driven divorce.
"Pro se divorce is an efficient, cost effective and lower stress solution for many couples; but it isn't for everyone. Call me and I will gladly give you a free and honest assessment of your situation and a straight forward take on whether or not pro se divorce is a good fit for you and your spouse or partner." – Roger Benson
