It’s smart to establish a support network. There are people who can help you.
Facebook is a great resource because there are Groups for just about every aspect of legal matters. I suggest that you go on Facebook and search for words that are your area of interest. For example: pro se, wrongful conviction, mother, father, custody, corruption, etc. You will be able to communicate with people who are representing themselves in matters similar to yours.
Try to identify others in your area who are representing themselves in court. Help one another.
Join the Lawless America group on Facebook, and join the Lawless America state group for the state where your legal matter is. For example, if you are in Texas, simply search in Facebook for Lawless America Texas. Most of the state pages are www.facebook.com/LawlessAmerica(state-name).
If you have a friend or relative who is an attorney, ask if he or she could give you some help from time to time.
