What Can Happen When You Go Pro se in Family Court?
Over a year ago Sarah Dalton went to the Supreme because of what she had experienced in a very dysfunctional Family Court process.
Tuesday (03/03/2014) Sarah Dalton went to court Prose against her ex and Susan Bixby of MittelAsen (who was representing her ex). You may remember her case going before the Supreme Court of Maine last year (see links below).
When I talked with her on Monday she had prepared herself for the worst. She was going back into the court which had given her such a hard time.
In a twist - Judge Moskowitz encouraged the two parties to negotiate out of court. They did and Sarah has gone from having a minimum of supervised visits to three days of unsupervised visits a week. In Sarah's own words this was "miles ahead of where we were" - not perfect but better than what she had.
What is even more amazing is that she accomplished this Prose and should stand as an example to the 74% who go into court that one can represent themselves and have a positive outcome.
