Pro Se Divorce Attorney in Washington State

What is Pro Se Divorce

Pro se means that you represent yourself in the case and plan to file the necessary documents without a lawyer. In agreed divorces it is not uncommon for people to choose to represent themselves. That said, people who act pro se often seek advice from a lawyer.

This method of divorce should only be used in agreed cases, since the risks of self-representation are reduced. This applies to almost all cases, not just divorce. While a person can represent themselves in a contested case, it is risky. Family law and court procedures are complex. If your spouse hired a lawyer you’ll be at a huge disadvantage.

With a pro se divorce you choose what you need. We’ll provide the necessary forms along with guidance on how to file the documents with the court. Your primary role will be to work with your spouse to reach an agreement and draft the paperwork. If you need help, your pro se lawyer will be available to offer advice and assistance.
