The law says that you are held to the same standards as a licensed attorney if you choose to represent yourself. The judge is prohibited from giving you any legal advice and cannot tell you how to get what you need. You should hire an attorney to assist you in your case.
Yes. There is nothing wrong with that. Many times a domestic violence intervention worker in some counties will fill out the paperwork for you to sign. Keep in mind that you are signing the document under oath. Make sure the content is correct before signing it.
