Delaware State Courts Representing Yourself
The court process can be very complicated. Representing yourself may take a lot of time, may be difficult, and may be confusing. The Court will expect you to follow the same rules attorneys must follow. If at any point throughout the Court process you are not sure about representing yourself, you should talk to an attorney.
Please remember that COURT STAFF CANNOT GIVE YOU LEGAL ADVICE. If you have a question about what options you have or what you should do, you should talk to an attorney. Just because you talk to an attorney does not necessarily mean that you must hire that attorney to represent you. Ask the attorney if he/she is willing to meet with you for a consultation to answer your questions without having to hire that attorney for full representation. Also ask before you meet with the attorney what fees, if any, are involved for the consultation.
