How do I represent myself in court? How to do it in 2018
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”
2018 – New Year, new you? Or the same old issues you feel chained to for many years to come?
It’s easy to feel powerless when you are involved in the family or other civil courts. Easy to feel a hostile ex partner pulls your strings, casts a shadow and dominates your day-to-day life.
It doesn’t have to be like that.
Ask yourself `If I represent myself in court how would that help?’
Some good answers here:
- Because you can.
- You’ll empower yourself.
- You will be stronger and more confident after doing so.
- No one knows the case quite like you.
- Or cares.
Oh…and you’ll save a lot of cash too. If that sort of thing interests you.
It’s normal to think your situation is unique. That your ex is doing new and inventive ways to break court orders and that he/she will continue to do so until Doomsday without any consequence.
But the truth is that nothing is new under the sun. Whatever your position someone has gone through it before and learned whether their response to it has worked or not.
You can learn too: Is what you’re doing working? Has it made things better? Worse? Or made no difference?
Represent myself? Some basics.
Put aside your feelings. Yes, I know it’s a bit Zen…in many cases we’re talking about your children here aren’t we? But if you are the sort of person who would do anything for your kids would that include keeping your mouth shut at the optimal time, focusing about your goals, being realistic about what you can achieve or not lashing out at anyone who is nearby and being patient?
You have way more power than you could ever imagine. And you are defeated only when you give up.
So make 2018 a year things change. Take control of your life. Take control of your own actions and know you cannot change anyone else. The information is out there.
It’s yours to lose. What you going to do different this year?
