Are you thinking of hiring a Divorce Attorney to do your divorce?

You can certainly hire a divorce attorney to prepare your divorce paperwork, but you might not actually need to. Have you ever considered doing the divorce yourself, via the assistance of a professional legal document service? A Legal Document Assistant (LDA) is a person who can help in-pro-per (self-represented) clients prepare and file their divorce paperwork without the assistance of an attorney.

While a Legal Document Assistant cannot give actual legal advice, clients who know what they want with regards to the divorce details, can generally direct the Legal Document Assistant, or legal document service, in how they want their divorce handled, so that in turn the Legal Document Assistant can draft the appropriate documents based on the client’s direction. This of course means no attorney retainer is required.

Are there other advantages to using a Legal Document Assistant (LDA) as opposed to a divorce attorney for my divorce?

In addition to not having to pay a retainer to a divorce attorney, some professional legal document services will quote a flat fee for their work, which means you will also not be charged for every email, phone call and correspondence, as you would if you hired an attorney.

Additionally, many of our clients have reported that by using a service like ours, they actually minimized the emotions that can sometimes come into play when an attorney is involved. If you do choose to use a legal document service it is important that they associate with legal professionals within their community, should you actually “need” legal advice. If things become more complicated down the road you can always hire an divorce attorney at any time.
