Can I file a partition lawsuit and represent myself?
Question Details: I am a tenant-in-common with my ex-husband. He has refused a reasonable offer on the house that we still jointly own. The sale of the house was not specifically addressed in the divorce decree. I now want to file a partition lawsuit to force him to sell the house.
Yes, you can. Any joint or co-owner of real estate may file a partition action if his or her co-owners do not agree with him or her as to what to do with the property; and any natural person (not a trust, LLC, or corporation) may represent him- or herself in court "pro se."
