Most people don’t realize that there’s an option to a costly legal battle involving attorneys. That option is hiring a Legal Document Assistance company. These are typically flat-fee based services with some hourly work, but much less costly than completely attorney-driven management of your filing and document exchange.
The best way to use a Legal Document Assistance company is to partner that service with a few hours of an attorney’s time and knowledge for specific questions regarding the law.
The only way settlements are made is by both parties telling their lawyers – or their Legal Document Assistant company - what they will accept. The only person, other than the parties themselves, who can make decisions for the marital settlement is a Judge, and that’s if you go to court.
80% of divorce and legal separation cases are settled out of court. The sooner the parties mutually decide what they want from each other the less legal fees they will pay and the less emotional stress each person will feel.
