Thinking about representing yourself in court?
Everyone knows the cost of legal representation can be extremely expensive. Consequently more and more people are exercising their right to represent themselves in Court proceedings.
All court proceedings however, require the formal preparation and drafting of legal documentation to facilitate the legal process. It is an unqualified waste of time and expense for a person contemplating self representation to attend Court only to have their application or submission rejected or thrown out due to lack of preparation and formal documentation.

Statement of Issues

Your Position Statement will give the Court further insight into how your present circumstances affect you and your dependants quality of life.
