Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the questions that we commonly encounter. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, reach out through the Contact Us section. Our goal is to help as many people as possible and we are happy to answer questions about our services and resources.

Can I get legal advice from Litigation Survival School?

Litigation Survival School offers education to help you make better legal decisions for yourself. We do not offer legal advice and the education that we provide should not be considered legal advice. The crucial difference between what we provide and legal advice is that we teach general principles and rules without applying them to your specific facts; legal advice usually looks like telling you how the law applies to your specific situation.

Who would benefit from taking Litigation Survival School courses?

While Litigation Survival School was designed with people who are going it alone in mind, there are several different categories of people who greatly benefit from our courses:

  • pro se (unrepresented litigants) -- people "going it alone"

  • Represented parties who want to better understand what is happening in their case and better assist their attorney

  • Even attorneys who are new to litigation!

Can you help me decide which of your products will work for me?

Absolutely! Contact us with the details about what you need to accomplish, what your deadlines/upcoming court appearances are, what your budget is (if applicable), and any other details that you think might help. We are happy to either set up a phone consultation or send you some ideas through email.

Can you help me find a good attorney?

The short answer is yes. The longer answer: while there are certainly bad attorneys, there is no attorney that is "good" for everyone. We will help you define your litigation values, your objectives, and your communication style/needs so you know what to look for in an attorney. We will also help you craft questions to find the best person to fit those needs.

What other litigation tasks can you assist me with?

As part of divorce coaching, we often

  • aid clients  with obtaining records that are available directly from outside sources, without involving the Court or the other person;

  • consult with third parties such as counselors, doctors, and other providers to educate them about the court system and the cases they are involved in;

  • help clients develop better communication with their attorney(s);

  • practice with clients the things that they will need to do in Court;

  • and much, much more.
