FLORIDA LEGAL DOCUMENTS AND LEGAL FORMS PREPARATION

DID YOU KNOW THAT MANY PEOPLE URGENTLY NEED HELP WITH THEIR LEGAL MATTERS?

Without legal assistance, their issues will likely go unresolved or wrongly resolved against them. One of the biggest challenges in the court system today is the increasing number of self-represented individuals and pro se litigants. As the number of self-representing individuals and pro se litigants in civil, family, probate, estate planning, divorce, eviction, and small claims cases continues to grow, courts are responding by improving access to justice. This only empowers people to solve their own problems and turn to legal document preparers to help them with the paperwork.

In some states, as many as 80% to 90% of self-represented individuals and pro se litigants are not represented, even though their opponent has a lawyer. The number of these “pro se litigants” has increased substantially in the last decade. This is because of the economic downturn and poor economic conditions. In addition, the issues like housing and domestic relations are also adding to it.

Some of the largest legal aid organizations for low-income Americans in the nation reported recently that 86% of low-income Americans receive inadequate or no professional legal help for the legal problems they face. In the State of Florida, state courts continue to see a staggering number of self-represented individuals and pro se litigants and this number only continues to grow.

CAN I REPRESENT MYSELF IN COURT?

Equal justice under law means that everyone should be provided access to our legal system, no matter an individual’s economic status. Some individuals also choose to not hire an attorney for their own reasons and feel they can represent themselves in court. As such, South Florida Legal Doc Prep Services has been helping Floridians who are acting as pro se litigants to assist in document preparation of the appropriate Florida legal forms and Florida legal documents in almost any uncontested matter that may arise.

So, what do we do about the fact that the legal system is, for many people without a lawyer, nearly impossible to navigate? One way to resolve this issue is for those who are unable to afford the services of an attorney to seek out the services of a legal document preparer. It is important to go to someone who has years of experience working behind the scenes for lawyers.

WHAT DOES SELF-REPRESENTATION MEAN?

If you are suing someone or being sued, there are forms that a nonlawyer can prepare for you which are compliant with the State of Florida and Supreme Court and is knowledgeable of the procedures of the court system. Should you be dealing with an issue regarding a family matter, civil matter, breach of contract, negligence, landlord/tenant issues, criminal records, probate, etc., you can represent yourself and obtain assistance with the court filings. Before you decide to be self-represented, you may want to learn more about what this means. Just know you will not have an attorney to represent you in court or to provide you with legal advice. If you find yourself in this situation like so many self-represented individuals and pro se litigants, just know that there is real justice out there for you as well.
