I have been calling attorneys for weeks trying to file for a simple divorce but they are charging way too much money. How can I file for a divorce in Florida if I do not have a lot of money and without having to do everything myself?
The only other option used to be to file for divorce by yourself which is hard to do. First you need to know where to go, what divorce forms you need, how to complete them, pay a notary, take them to court and then wait for a court hearing.
Welcome to the age of legal document preparers! Also known as legal form assistants, nonattorneys, glorified typists. They are not paralegals (and if they are they cannot call themselves that), but regular people that have dedicated themselves to help people solve their legal problems without the expense of hiring an attorney.
Yes, they cannot litigate your cases and cannot give you ANY legal advice. You do have to tell them what you need and they are not responsible for the end result, you are after all representing yourself, but you will not have to figure out everything on your own.
For example, at Apex Legal Document Preparation Service, if your divorce is in mutual agreement you will not have to step in a courthouse...ever! They are a member of the Florida Association of Legal Document Preparers and they have learned of an Express No-Court Florida Divorce available to anyone that has lived in the State of Florida for the last 6 months. Most attorneys do not even know this type of divorce exists and it's 100% legit. The best thing is that it's a cheap divorce in Florida, signed by a judge and mailed to the petitioner and respondent directly. It's not only a cheap divorce, it's also a quick divorce in Florida, typically taking only 30-45 days. Oh did I say cheap? For an Express Simple Divorce they charge only $280. That's it. Besides the court filing fee they never charge a single penny more for their Quick Florida Divorce.
