A study by the Wisconsin Supreme Court found that up to 70% of family cases in Wisconsin included one party that was unrepresented by a lawyer. You can find the study at http://www.wicourts.gov/publications/reports/docs/prosereport.pdf. The study notes: “Most self-represented litigants, however, do not know these rules exist, let alone how to apply them. . . it can result in a litigant not being prepared for hearings or experiencing difficulty presenting information to the court. In either instance, self-represented litigants can seriously damage his or her ability to be successful in court. More importantly, such a lack of understanding diminishes the court’s ability to come to a fair disposition.”
