Do I need a lawyer?

While you do not need a lawyer, it is highly recommended that you get a lawyer if you can, especially if the other parent has one.  If you cannot afford a lawyer, you may be able to find sources of free or low-cost legal help on our OK Finding a Lawyer page.

If you are going to be in court without a lawyer, our Preparing for Court – By Yourself section may be useful to you.
