Maybe try a 'divorce coach'.? http://www.divorcecc.com/
? I contacted this person, but never ended up meeting with her, yet anyway.? She seemed knowledgeable on the phone, but again, I never met with her, and she also charges an hourly rate.?
I perhaps plan to contact her again for guidance such as you are seeking.? Good luck and be well.? -Tracy

I thought I would throw out something to see if anyone could help me.
I was divorced when my son was a toddler.
He is now 6 and just finished Kindergarten.
He has official summer vacation for the first time in his life.
The JPA was written very poorly.
Despite requests, my ex has given me no extra time during the summer whatsoever.
Furthermore, my co-parenting rights are being obstructed. And it's getting worse.
Mediation will be a waste of time with my ex, except for a "show" to pretend she is cooperating. She will force my hand and make me take it to court.
1) I would like to modify Child Visitation Time from the original JPA. ?
2) Lawyers did nothing but hurt me last time. Bum deal. Horribly written JPA. And wiped out my savings. My ex will force my hand and take me to court if I want anything changed.
I would like to do all the legwork, file the paperwork, act as my own attorney. But I still would like a knowledgable (paid) advocate on my side, helping me, coaching me, with me doing the "work" while this person provides expert direction/advice. It will be less expensive this way, but hopefully achieve the same goal.
Can anyone please help me or direct me? I need someone to expertly "guide" me, while I do the work.
So maybe a lawyer who will "coach" me through, but not actually take the case?
Or maybe a paralegal skilled with issues related to modifying an existing JPA?
Greatly appreciate any thoughts or ideas.
