Do I Really Need A Lawyer?

Midsection of woman reading book

Lawyers in Florida charge anywhere from $250 to $1000’s of dollars an hour, depending on their expertise and reputation. If you’ve been charged with a serious crime or sued for millions of dollars, hiring an attorney is definitely worth whatever it costs, but there are situations where representing yourself is not so risky and can save you a great deal of money. For uncontested matters that simply require that forms be properly executed and submitted, hiring a Florida document preparation service can give you the support and confidence to handle many legal matters on your own.

How A Florida Legal Document Preparation Service Can Help

Most people feel comfortable picking up the phone and negotiating simple disputes or sending a letter or email, but feel like “a deer in the headlights” when confronted with legal forms and procedures. That’s where a document preparation service can help you Identify the forms that need to be filled out, where they must be filed and the applicable deadlines. In addition, you can give the information they need to fill out the forms for you, making sure that this is done accurately. Providing information that is objective and available to the public is not considered legal advice, but this valuable support helps people avoid crushing legal fees.

What Types of Legal Matters Are Most Suitable for DIY

Many legal matters can seem simple at the onset, but become much more complicated later. For example, your “uncontested” divorce or probate matter may become contested after the papers and filed and served, so hiring a lawyer may become necessary later. That said, there is usually no harm done by starting out on your own with the presumption that the matter will not be contested. Family law matters such as uncontested divorces with no children, premarital agreements and separation agreements can be handled without an attorney as long as there is an agreement between the parties. Sometimes people work with a mediator to establish the terms and hire a Florida Document Preparation Service to fill out the forms. Small business filing such as partnership agreements, incorporation and forming limited liability companies usually do not require representation by an attorney. In fact, many attorneys refer their clients to Florida legal document preparers for this type of service.

What’s the Most Common Drawback of Self-Representation?

The most typical complaint from individuals representing themselves in uncontested matters is that their documents keep getting “bumped back” by the court. In other words, the forms are not properly filled out and are rejected. This can happen several times, greatly extending the time-frame for the matter and delaying the benefits of its completion. A Florida document preparation service can help you avoid this frustrating scenario by assisting you in creating accurate and precise documents that the court clerks won’t bounce back to you.
