    Default Do you have a right to a lawyer in a divorce case?

    When you are getting divorced do you have a right to an attorny just like when you commit a crime?

    Also, can a spouse REFUSE to sign papers?

    Q: When you are getting divorced do you have a right to an attorny just like when you commit a crime?

    A: No. Some places, however, have lawyers who will represent you for free or for low rates. Ask around.


    Q: Also, can a spouse REFUSE to sign papers?

    A: Well, that's an extremely general question so the extremely general answer is: it depends.



    If you want to give us facts and details, that would help.

    Sorry...

    I live in Maine. I was wondering if there were any lawyers around here who would represent you for free and how I would go about finding one.

    Also, when I say 'papers' I mean the divorce papers that say that you're legally divorced once they are signed. I forget the name of them. >.<
