What exactly is Doc Prep?

Document Preparation is where you hire us to draft your legal documents on a flat fee basis. At Best Law Firm we recognize that some people do not need or cannot afford to have a lawyer address every aspect of their case. We offer legal document preparation services and hourly legal consultations. You will have confidence knowing that your matter is handled properly without all of the costs associated with hiring a lawyer full time. Call us to schedule your consultation at (480) 219-2433. If you need additional help along the way, we will provide hourly consultations as you go through the process and have additional questions.

We can draft just about anything you need related to your family law issue. We draft everything from the initial documents to the final decree. Common documents that we draft include:

  • Divorce Documents
  • Custody Agreements
  • Custody Petitions
  • Petitions to Establish Paternity
  • Divorce Decrees
  • Property Settlement Agreements
  • Modifications
  • and more…

Once your documents have been drafted, they need to be filed with the court and served to the opposing party. We can arrange to have your documents filed on your behalf to help you avoid any issues with the court. We can also arrange the Service of Process required by the courts.

This is the most common question we get asked by new clients and unfortunately the answer is, it depends. It depends on the complexity of your issue, the willingness of everyone involved to co-operate and how much work you want to undertake. But we offer packages to help you get started and understand the costs.

Our “Dissolution” Package costs $295. This includes drafting of all of the court documents necessary to start the divorce process. But keep in mind that the court charges a filing fee directly to you at the time of filing. The cost for a new divorce petition is $338.

Dangers Of Drafting Your Own Documents

Individuals often come to us after trying to do it alone or after experiencing a court disaster. But some mistakes cannot be fixed. It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you can handle your situation on your own. Do-It-Yourself forms make legal matters seem very simple. Unfortunately, there are many dangers to using these template legal forms. Most of them are not specific to Arizona law which is a community property state. Because of the potential dangers, there are several reasons why people should come to Best Law Firm to have their legal documents prepared.

You are held to the same standard as an attorney when you deal with the legal system.

You simply can’t know what you don’t know. And not knowing can lead to costly mistakes that can haunt you for years.

You may think that you understand the forms, but you may not understand the legal significance of what you are doing and the long-term effects it can have. A form cannot anticipate future problems or provide protection. A form cannot counsel you about additional legal documents you may need.

Non-lawyers who prepare documents cannot give you legal advice, suggest strategies, or advise you about your rights. As experienced attorneys, we are able to provide the guidance you need to avoid problems. Our clients benefit from the peace of mind that comes with knowing an experienced attorney is preparing their legal documents and answering their questions without the high costs associated with having a lawyer do everything.
