There’s no requirement under Ohio law that you have an attorney represent you in your divorce case. However, generally it’s a good idea to have the advice of counsel in any legal proceeding including termination of your marriage. Even if you have an agreement and your spouse’s attorney has prepared the documents for filing with the court, you should hire an attorney to review the documents. You need to be informed about your rights, the law, and your options. And an attorney can provide information that you need to know to make decisions because those decisions can have long-lasting effects. And if you are thinking about representing yourself in court you should know that you will be expected to know and follow all of the rules of procedure and rules of evidence. Is this something you are prepared to do?
