I am representing my own petition in a Family Court to set aside an ex parte divorce decree against me. Every time I appear before the Court the Hon'ble Judge asks me if I have a lawyer and I say No.
My case is pending almost for two years now and I have mixed experiences. I did some mistakes like I attached some documents with my petition only later did I realsied that I should have not disclosed my cards so early and I could have waited until my evidences were recorded or the arguments took place. I even didn't mention the rule or section under which I filed my petition and this was objected to. I also learnt that its tricky in the courts. And it helps if you know the tricks. Sometimes it helps if you have an idea about the opponent's next move, or the pros and cons of your own move.
I take paid guidance from a lawyer. I draft my petition, reply, rejoinder, written evidence but I let the lawyer do the finishing work. Now I always talk to a lawyer about strategies, court procedure, rules etc. Apart from that I do a lot of online research. I know I have taken a risk but I am ready to face the consequances.
So its not impossible, but it depends and in your case only you can decide weather you are equipped with the skills to represent yourself in the court of law.
All the best!
