Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
I am very sorry to hear about your dilemma, but will do my best to provide you with advice and guidance on what to do next. No, the legal processes take the same amount of time whether you are represented or not - the timetable for that is set by the court. However, the process will be much more difficult for you as a litigant in person if you have no legal knowledge at all as everything you are directed to do will obviously take you far longer than it would take an experienced lawyer to do. E.g preparing the grounds of appeal, the skeleton argument, putting together a bundle and evidence, preparing statements and so forth.
The law about the appeal is likely to be the most difficult - you should consider instructing a lawyer.
