My girlfriend wants to file a modification of child support. She's dirt broke, no job. Thus, can't hire a lawyer. She has severe anxiety disorder and can't represent herself properly. I've had a little bit of legal training and I feel that I would do a good job if I could speak on her behalf although I'm not an attorney. Is there a way to get the court to allow me to represent her?

No. You must be a licensed attorney to do this. However, most counties have pro bono (free) or legal services programs for the indigent. Check with your county bar association about these.
Nope! you need to be an attorney
