LAWS & RULES. All laws and rules that apply to attorneys apply to those parties that represent themselves in court. The Judge will not sign orders that are incorrect or incomplete, nor will the Judge give you legal advice or make corrections for you.
You should read Title 20 of the Wyoming Statues (the divorce laws) and the Wyoming Rules of Civil Procedure. Most of the District Courts in the State of Wyoming have a courthouse or county library where these laws and rules can be read. You may also look up the laws and rules on the Wyoming Judicial Branch website. To find the laws, under State Law Library, select "WY Legal Materials." To find the rules, under Supreme Court, select "Court Rules."
LEGAL ASSISTANCE. Neither clerks nor judges can help you fill out forms or answer questions. If you have questions that cannot be answered by the packet, you may need to seek the advice of an attorney. Here are resources for finding an attorney.
UNAUTHORIZED PRACTICE OF LAW. The purpose of this classroom and the packets is to assist those persons who are completing their own divorce. It may be the unauthorized practice of law for a person who is not a licensed attorney to assist others with their legal matters. Such practice could subject a guilty party to punishment for contempt of court.
