There is no legal requirement that you have a lawyer. As a self-represented party, you can file for divorce, negotiate with your spouse, and assuming you reach a written agreement, you can ask the court to incorporate your settlement agreement into your judgment.

It is a good idea to seek legal advice in your situation, especially if the house has high equity and is valuable.
