Legal Question in Family Law in Virginia

Show Cause

I filed a show cause because the paternal grandparents won't obide by the court order for reasonable visitation. Went to court and was told by the judge that they have hired an attorney. New court date has been set. Should I have an attorney represent me? Do I need one?
