The term “Pro Se” can bring preconceived notions of failing miserably in the court system against the other party’s attorney. The idea of going it alone in the courtroom throws some people into fits of anxiety and nervousness that may keep them from pursuing any legal issues in court–out of fear.

When taking your ex-wife to court for a divorce and/or for child support obligations, it’s important to understand that many fathers go through the court system alone. There is no rule that says you must have representation when litigating civil cases–or criminal cases, for that matter.

There are many benefits to taking your ex-wife to court Pro Se. In addition to saving money on outrageous attorney fees, you also can utilize the help of a legal coach at a fraction of the cost if you want a little assistance in submitting the proper paperwork, meeting deadlines and understanding any confusing legal terms that may be very important to your case.

One of the main benefits of self representation is that you are your own “expert” in your case. You are the person that knows all the facts, all the information pertaining to the case. When hiring an attorney, hundreds of dollars of legal fees go to the attorney while you are explaining your case and helping get the lawyer up-to-date on what’s been going on. By knowing what’s going on with your divorce, you are the most informed person in the courtroom, and shouldn’t have to shell out additional money just to share your story to a lawyer that will never quite know the ins and outs of the marriage.

If you still feel uncomfortable going entirely Pro Se, you can always hire an attorney to be your co-counsel. This means that you are still representing yourself, but your attorney is there to assist you and offer legal guidance throughout the court process.

Bail Bonds – Just Like Real Cash /maricopa-county-courts/going-to-jail/phoenix-bail-bonds-going-to-jail/bail-bonds-just-like-real-cash/ /maricopa-county-courts/going-to-jail/phoenix-bail-bonds-going-to-jail/bail-bonds-just-like-real-cash/#comments Tue, 14 Oct 2008 18:41:55 +0000 Maricopa County Court By Michael Russell

Life can be special, especially if you’re living the life you dreamed of.  Everyone wants to have a long and fulfilling life.  Everyday you would like to experience something new.  Something that makes today better then yesterday and tomorrow better then today, but, life isn’t perfect and you shouldn’t expect it to be.  You grew up in this world, by the time you reach adulthood, you should know that there will be bad days.  Hopefully you have enough maturity and it helps you overcome the trials and tribulations of life, but for some people, life can become a nightmare.

There are so many things you can do in your life, but you need to be smart.  There are rules you must live by and if you chose to break those rules, then you may have to pay the consequences.  The biggest consequence you could pay, is to be arrested.  If your actions aren’t considered major, then you’ll probably get to go home, but if you committed, or you’re arrested on the suspicion of committing a serious crime, then you’re going to jail.

How long will you stay in jail?  Well, that depends on what you did.  If your crime was so heinous, then the court may decide to keep you in jail until your trial.  But if the court decides your crime doesn’t require you to stay in jail, the court will give you bail.  What is bail?  Bail is a fee the court charges you, to make sure you will appear in court.  You only have to pay a percentage of the bail amount.  If you appear in court, then your bail money will be returned, but if you don’t, then the money will be forfeited over to the court.

If you have a lot of money, then making bail won’t be a problem, but most people don’t have that amount of money easily available to them.  If you don’t have the money and you can’t find a relative who has, then your best chance of making bail, is with a bond.  The bail bond, just like cash, is issued as a guarantee that you will appear in court.  You can get a bail bond from a bail agent.  The agent will usually charge around 10% of the bond amount.  The bail bond is a contract and you will need someone to co-sign the contract.  The bail bond, just like cash, will be forfeited if you don’t appear in court.  But the major difference is, if you forfeit your bond, the person who co-signed for your bond will still be liable for paying off your bond.

Bail bonds are a good tool within the court system.  It allows people with low incomes, to be able to acquire some of the same rights, as people with high incomes.  But bail bonds are also a business and the fees can get steep, depending on the length of the bond.  Of course, the best thing for people to do, would be to live their lives within the law and never have to worry about whether they can or can’t make bail.
