One hour per month
That’s all the time I was initially offered to see my two children after my wife and I divorced back in 2001. I was distraught. But I wasn’t willing to accept this. I couldn’t afford a solicitor, so I decided to get clued up and represent myself in court. There were many ups and downs during the process, but in the end I was able to gain much more contact with my sons and we have an excellent relationship to this day.
18 years of experience
The process of representing myself in court inspired me to support others in the same situation, first as a McKenzie Friend, and then as a qualified lawyer and barrister. I’ve helped people overcome challenges such as obtaining a more favourable divorce settlement or gaining more access to their children. Now, I’ve put all of my knowledge and expertise from supporting people in the Family Courts for 18 years into this comprehensive training course.
Representing yourself in court is not a stupid idea
Maybe you can’t afford a solicitor to represent you, or perhaps you think you can do a better job of it yourself. Whatever your motivation, the truth is that you don’t have to be an expert in the law to represent yourself in court. But you do need a little insider knowledge about the rules and processes, and some thorough preparation. You need to know how to give the judge what they need to make their decision, and increase the chances that the outcome goes in your favour. If you prepare and do things properly, you can represent yourself without damaging your case and feel proud of rising to the challenge.
Guiding you through
The Represent Yourself course will walk you through the whole process step by step, and I’ll answer any questions you have and support you all the way. After the live session, you’ll have lifetime access to the course recording so that you can return to it whenever you need to, at your own pace. The course is simple and easy to follow. You’ll also get access to a private Facebook group just for students to discuss any aspects of the course or your situation. It always helps to chat to people who are going through the same thing as you.
I’ve been where you are now – you can read more about my story here – so I know how it feels, but I also know that YOU CAN DO THIS.
Imagine how much more confident you’ll feel walking into that courtroom with all this knowledge behind you.
