You do not need an attorney to file for divorce although it is always recommended to have your own counsel. There are options and resources available for non-represented parties, more formally called, “pro se litigants”.
Indiana Legal Help has a library of divorce forms and settlement agreements to use as a guide.
It is also helpful to consult the following resources as you navigate your divorce:
- Indiana Child Support Calculator
- Indiana Child Support Guidelines
- Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines
- Co-Parenting Education Requirement
- Verified Financial Declaration Form
- Our Family Wizard
Before signing a final settlement agreement or representing yourself in a court proceeding, it is worth your time to consult with an attorney for a case evaluation. While a family law attorney cannot tell you how to practice law, he or she should be able to advise you on your rights and your case as a whole.
