What is a Legal Document Preparer?
A Legal Document Preparer is a nonlawyer and experienced professional. They assist and provide document preparation services to self-represented individuals. Legal Document Preparers will only provide self-help, nonlawyer document preparation at the client’s specific direction. Legal Document Preparers cannot give legal advice or represent you in court.
A document preparer can assist consumers by locating laws, cases, and court rules. Although, the interpretation of this legal information may be considered legal advice, locating them and providing them to consumers is perfectly fine. For example, on many of the instruction sheets for Florida Family Law Supreme Court approved forms, a Florida Statute is referenced, but the statute itself does not appear. Many Florida Statutes are straight forward and do not require legal interpretation. Providing the statute itself to the consumer may be all that is needed for the consumer to make an informed decision.
Many consumers do not know the steps to follow in their case. A document preparer can explain procedures so that the consumer knows what to do next. Our document preparers can explain procedures from a Supreme Court Approved form.
Legal forms can be complicated and often present a frustrating task for clients. Our legal document preparers help consumers prepare and complete forms with information provided by the individual. A document preparer may not select forms for a consumer to file, but we can show the consumer which forms are required according to the court’s written instructions.
While many consumers may be able to fill out forms themselves, they may not be aware of specific formatting requirements such as font, font size, margins, etc.
Legal document preparers may not offer legal advice, but there are no rules to say a document preparer should not actively listen to their clients. Asking questions that help the client arrive at their own decisions or acting as a sounding board may be the most valuable aspects of hiring a document preparer.
The cost of legal representation from a lawyer in Orlando is more than most people can afford. So, for consumers who do not require legal advice or representation, a legal document preparer may be their best option. We offer document preparation, limited nonlawyer services and legal document services at affordable prices.
