Without legal document preparation assistance, your issues will likely go unresolved or wrongly resolved against you. One of the biggest challenges in the court system today is the increasing number of self-represented individuals and pro se parties.
As the numbers of those trying to handle matters on their own concerning uncontested divorce, small claims, family adoption, name change, summary administration, estate planning documents, LLC setup, and eviction cases continue to grow, courts are responding by improving access to justice. As such, this only empowers people to solve their problems and turn to legal document preparers to help them with the paperwork.
Statistics show that in some states, as many as 80% to 90% of self-represented individuals and pro se parties are not represented by an attorney, even though their opponent has a lawyer. These “pro se parties” have increased substantially in the last decade. One reason is because of the economic downturn and poor economic conditions. In addition, issues such as housing and domestic relations are also adding to them.
Some of the largest legal aid organizations in the nation reported recently that 86% of low-income Americans receive inadequate or no legal aid for the legal problems they face. In Florida, state courts continue to see a staggering number of self-represented individuals and pro se litigants, which only grows.
Equal justice under law should provide everyone access to our legal system, no matter the individual’s economic status. Some individuals also choose not to hire an attorney for their own reasons and feel they can represent themselves in court.
As such, South Florida Document Assist has been helping Floridians who are acting aspro se parties to assist in document preparation with Florida legal forms and Florida legal documents in many uncontested matters that may arise.
So, what do we do about the fact that the legal system is nearly impossible to navigate for many people without a lawyer? One way to resolve this issue is for those who cannot afford an attorney’s services to seek out the services of a legal document preparer.
If you are suing someone or being sued in small claims court, there are forms that a nonlawyer can prepare for you that comply with the State of Florida and the Supreme Court. Should you be dealing with an issue regarding a family matter, eviction, criminal post-judgment, or summary administration – probate matter, you can represent yourself and obtain assistance with the court filings in many instances.
Before you decide to be self-represented, you should learn more about what this means. You will not have an attorney to represent you in court or provide legal advice. If you find yourself in this situation like many individuals and pro se parties, know there is also real justice for you. By researching and utilizing the appropriate resources, you can confidently represent yourself as a pro se party in many situations.
