Can I enter the courtroom with a 'written outline' I can refer to, in order to argue my case more effectively before a judge?

Q: First time family court appearance in 'pro se' mode and seeking advice on how to represent myself. I consulted with a legal aid, but I won't have the opportunity to seek additional advice, as my first appearance is scheduled for tomorrow. Any general feedback is greatly appreciated.

A: David's Answer: Yes, you can either have an outline or notes in front of you for the initial appearance. That said, if you financially qualify, you may be appointed a free attorney by the Court. Otherwise, you're best advised to retain an attorney to represent you. Schedule a consult with a Bronx family Law attorney for a full assessment.
