Frequently asked questions

You are able to represent yourself in a Queensland court, however you may wish to contact a lawyer to discuss the more complex legal matters that you may find difficult to navigate without legal training or experience. If you choose to represent yourself, you must have knowledge about the law and the court process.
Some individuals choose to represent themselves rather than seeking legal advice. This is commonly because:
- An individual cannot afford legal representation or believes the legal fees are excessive;
- An individual does not qualify for a grant of legal aid;
- An individual does not want to engage a lawyer; or
- An individual believes they can effectively run the litigation on their own.
The duration of court cases depends on each individual case. The case could take longer in court if it is complex and requires more time, for example if there are significant disputes or witnesses that need to be called.
The cost of legal representation will depend on your individual situation. For example, for some cases, only one court appearance is required, however for other matters, more than one court appearance is required, rendering the process more expensive.
A lawyer can help you by:

- Discussing your individual situation which may include complex legal terms or issues;
- Explaining what you could be entitled to when you divide your property;
- Explaining your responsibilities and obligations when discussing parenting arrangements;
- Raising issues that you may not have been aware of; and
- Helping you with negotiations if a dispute arises.
