About Paralegal Services
(Provided by Divorce Source Staff)

Paralegals are not trained as lawyers, therefore they are not able to provide you with any type of legal advice. You will hear this response quite often when going through your divorce, because it is very easy to ask the wrong person a question that does not seem to be legal related, but actually is.

Paralegal services are great for helping you prepare your divorce forms. They provide typing service that may save you some time and money. Be sure to have a clear understanding of the cost (whether it is per page or on an hourly basis). If you have retained a lawyer for your divorce, most likely there is a paralegal on staff. Paralegal services typically aid the pro se individual or someone who is simply filing a motion for modifications.

Be sure the paralegal service you choose has been properly trained and has been experienced with the divorce procedure in your area. Completing divorce forms can be some what of a tricky thing, and it is not uncommon for the court or judge to revoke the forms.
