Los Angeles Divorce Lawyers for Pro Per
Self-Representing divorce proceedings

Family law services

Self-representation with the guidance of an attorney may make the most sense as it can save the time, money and frustration of doing it on your own.

  • Do you want to do you own divorce but don’t know how?
  • Are you in agreement with your spouse on how you want to divide your assets and share custody of your children?
  • Is your divorce already behind you but you and your ex spouse agree that a current order needs to be changed?

Committed to keeping divorce expenses low

Not everyone needs to be represented by an attorney. You and your spouse may understand and know your rights in a divorce and can work out the details on your own. Some of the problems you may face in attempting to do your own divorce are figuring out what documents to file, when to file them, and everything that is required to get your divorce finalized.

Our lawyers help people who would like to minimize the expense of a divorce or modification of an order and need help with the paperwork. We offer self represented or pro per divorce legal services for clients who wish to represent themselves without an attorney.


“This approach reduces your expenses yet ensures that your divorce is executed properly according to California law. We are committed to working with all clients to keep their legal costs low.”
-Barbara Hammers, Senior Litigation Partner
