Case: Divorce of Husband and Wife after 6 year marriage. The Husband hired our office, and the Wife represented herself, along with assistance from her local JAG office due to the fact that the Husband was a military member. The Wife had already moved out of state and did not want to attend the court hearing in Rhode Island.
Result: My client and she worked together while I communicated with the JAG officer in order to reach a resolution that was satisfactory to both of them. She chose not to make the trip to put it on the record given the written contract we were able to negotiate.
