I wouldn't personally go this route. If you think your partner can't self rep, then I'd go with a family law lawyer. (either way, he needs to compose himself in court).

What if things go badly in court? What if the "cousin", makes mistakes, because they do not know family law? Seems like a good way, to cause friction in the family dynamic.

The phrase "No good deed goes unpunished" comes to mind.
