My question involves court procedures for the state of: Illinois
We have been summoned to court for a divorce decree dept that occured 18 years ago. If I go with my wife, will I be allowed to speak? There are many key points that I want the judge to hear and I think I'm a little better at getting them across then she is. I want to make sure all the bases are covered and the judge hears our side correctly.
Her ex has an attorney ( for the small amount of money involved it not smart for us to obtain one). We do not. Can I represent her (whatever the legal term is called) for me to do the talking?
