Hi, this is Dave Ward and this is number 10 in our series of the top 10 mistakes we see people make when they’re getting divorced in Georgia. The 10th mistake that I see people make so often is trying to represent themself against the party who is represented by an attorney.

I frequently get asked the question is it possible for somebody to represent themself in a divorce. The response that I usually give is it’s sort of akin to say asking if it’s possible for a dentist to give themself a root canal. I suppose it’s possible but it’s not where any rational person would do. This is particularly true in a situation where the other side is represented by an attorney.

Attorneys are going to be familiar with and understand not only the procedures of the court but all of the rules of evidence. They’re going to understand the deadlines that are involved; when things have to be filed, when things have to be turned over and all those types of things and if you’re going to choose to represent yourself, you’re going to be held up to exactly that same standard and I can tell you from my own experience for trying cases against unrepresented parties, it very, very rarely works out well for the unrepresented party because they simply are not equipped with the tools necessary to do and understand what has to be done at various points throughout the case.

You’ve just finished our series on the top 10 mistakes we see people make when they’re getting divorced in Georgia. It’s important to understand this list is non-exhaustive. There is almost an unlimited list of mistakes that we see. These are just the ones that we see most often. If you’re looking at a divorce and particularly if you’ve reached this point or you’ve watched all 10 of our videos then it seems pretty clear at this point that there is something going on and I always tell people, it’s important to speak with an attorney at the outset of the process. Don’t wait until some point later on. Having good information at the outset can make a tremendous difference going through the entire process.
