Peace of Mind

Although you can obtain “do-it-yourself” books and kits or utilize “internet” services to prepare your divorce or other legal documents, without the knowledge or background to understand how you should complete these documents, you could do yourself a greater injustice by not completing the documents correctly. Many of the books are only published once every year or two and cannot keep up to date with frequent changes in court procedures, local rules, or required forms needed when filing for divorce and other family law matters. Additionally, many internet services will not inform you if your divorce or other legal documents are later updated, and court procedures or local rules have changed. This could cause potential problems for you when you attempt to complete and file your legal documents for divorce or other family law matters.

By utilizing our service, you can be assured that we have the legal knowledge and experience to complete your legal documents for divorce and other family law related matters pursuant to your request and save you valuable time by allowing our service to properly prepare and process everything for you. We offer a “full service” to all of our clients, meaning that we will not only prepare your legal documents, but will also file and process all of your legal documents through the court in addition to assisting you in serving your spouse with the necessary legal documents for divorce or another family law matters, should you need us to do so.

Why spend numerous hours trying to decipher all of the many legal documents required in addition to spending even more time going to the court and standing in long lines only to possibly have your documents rejected or be told that you are either missing documents or your documents have not been completed correctly?

Let our experienced Paralegals and Legal Document Assistants assist you in preparing your documents right the first time!
