Family Law Self Help Assistance

Family Law Paperwork

Working with a Santa Cruz family law Legal Document Assistant provides you with affordable self-help services as most legal matters do not always require the need for attorneys. We are a self-help, 'do-it-yourself' service, which allows you to be informed and in control of your own family-law case. We can help you prepare and file the paperwork for a court motion if you need to represent yourself in court (pro per). If you find that you are in need of an attorney, we are happy to provide you with affordable, local referrals. By hiring us to help you with the paperwork, you can save on cost even when consulting with lawyers to obtain legal advice.
