Litigant in Person

Frequently this is referred to as an alternative to using Solicitors, Barristers or QCs. Where a person is unable to generally fund a Legal Team, they need to understand the protocols of being in a Family Court. Not having the time to learn ‘Legaleaze’ they will frequently use the services of a McKenzie Friend to advise them on procedural matters and how to present a case.
