Perhaps a recently deceased relative named you in their will as the personal representative of their estate? Maybe you and your spouse have decided to divorce.

You will probably find several DIY legal websites in your search results. Often these sites can give you information and point you in the right direction. Keep in mind, however, the help you get at these DIY legal websites will vary.

First and foremost, there is no substitute for professional expertise in preparing legal documents. The most efficient and affordable way to get your legal documents prepared professionally is to have a legal document assistant prepare them for you.

Advantages of DIY Legal Websites

DIY legal websites are a good source of basic information. These sites often have information about the laws and procedures that relate to your legal issue. Some may contain links to the forms and documents you need to, for example, open an estate for probate or establish legal paternity of your child. These DIY legal websites may tell you the steps of the process you need to follow. Sometimes they explain the meanings of legal terms related to your case. Accordingly, they are a good place to get some basic preliminary information when you are planning to file documents with the court.

Disadvantages of DIY Legal Websites

The best DIY websites just give you information; they provide checklists and blank forms so that you can continue the process on your own. Other than that, you are on your own, For example, you have no way of telling if you are completing the forms correctly or providing the complete and required information on a petition. If you misunderstand something on a DIY legal website, you could lose time, as well as the money you spent on filing fees.  Often people get a false sense of “doing it right” when, in reality, they may be completely doing it wrong. The truth is, the worst DIY legal websites are simply fronts for law firms. They try to convince you to hire a lawyer when you do not need one.

The Best Way to Represent Yourself in Court in California

There are many routine legal processes California consumers can handle on their own. For example, you do not need a lawyer to change your legal name. Unless you are very wealthy, you do not need a lawyer to file divorce after a short, childless marriage. You can even complete a complicated probate without hiring an attorney. With this in mind, however, just as hiring a lawyer for simple legal matters is a waste of money, so is taking the risk of making a mistake on your legal documents. The best choice is to hire a professional legal document assistant to prepare the documents for your case.
