Paralegals and Divorce: DIY Divorce Serving Murrieta, Temecula, Lake Elsinore, Perris, Menifee, Sun City

The cost of a divorce can strain already limited family budgets. By utilizing the services of a Legal Document Assistant to fill out and file your paperwork, but represent yourself in the case, a divorce can cost thousands of dollars less as compared to hiring attorneys.  Kristin Harrison, an LDA, serving Murrieta, Temecula, Lake Elsinore, Perris, Menifee, Sun City, and all areas of Southwest Riverside County, is saving families thousands of dollars by filing the necessary divorce paperwork WITHOUT hiring attorneys.  LDAs were referred to as Independent Paralegals until 2001, when legislation changed the designation to LDA.

When two people want to end the marriage co-operatively, and are in general agreement about issues connected to their children, division of property or assets, and want to avoid the high cost of a legal fight, a Legal Document Assistant can be the middle ground between trying to file the paperwork on your own, and hiring attorneys to file it for you. Legal Docuement Assistant’s work well for people who want to avoid going to court  to fight over the terms of the divorce.

LDAs can also work with one person without the involvement of the other party.  If one person wants a divorce and the other person does not want to co-operate, California family law allows for one person to initiate and complete the divorce process without the co-operation of the other party.

If a person or family attempts the divorce process with no assistance, time and effort is often wasted with repeated trips to the court house because of mistakes, incomplete, or missing forms.  Repeated trips to the court, repeated attempts to fill out the paperwork properly, will increase the length of time spent and frustration of trying to complete the divorce.

A Legal Document Assistant can help you fill out the paperwork properly and make sure all the necssary forms are completed, saving you time and confusion. If you represent yourself in the case, you can save thousands of dollars over hiring an attorney to represent you to the court.

There are many alternatives to spending thousands of dollars on a divorce, but it is the two people divorcing who have control over that.  By choosing to work with an LDA,  families can go through a very difficult time without the added financial burden of the high cost of an adversarial divorce.
