If I can’t afford a divorce attorney, will the Court appoint me one?
The Court will not appoint you an attorney if you cannot afford one to represent you in a family law proceeding. The Constitutional right to an attorney applies only to criminal proceedings. For that reason, the government must appoint a free attorney to criminal defendants.
As family court is a civil proceeding, you have the right to hire your own attorney, but you will not be given a free one. If you want an attorney in your family court proceeding, you are going to have to obtain one the old-fashioned way: You’re going to have to pay for it.
