Default Self Representation

I would like to ask a few of the more experienced and knowledgeable people on this site that have represented themselves about the experience. I realize that it is a pretty challenging undertaking as I start the process. This site is a big help with a lot of the laws and just general info. But my ex has a fairly well respected lawyer and I’m nervous that there may be some prejudice on the part of the judge as me coming off as a cheapskate, who refuses to pay for a lawyer. All the lawyers I have talked to say my particular case is to complex for me to self represent. Any feedback on the pros and cons of self representation is greatly appreciated.
