Legal Document Preparer
Legal Document Preparers can be an affordable solution to helping with legal issues in a professional, affordable, efficient, and confidential manner.
A legal document preparer is an experienced professional authorized to prepare legal documents for a client, but only at the client’s direction. Because legal document preparers do not practice law, they cannot make suggestions as to what a client should do in a particular matter. Still, they provide invaluable assistance with routine legal tasks that can be confusing and overwhelming to untrained citizens. They can provide legal information to a client, not legal advice.
A legal document preparer can help take away the enormous aggravation and stress in preparing your legal documents. One of the most stressful and time-consuming documents to complete in divorce is a Form 8.
A Form 8 Financial Statement is a Supreme Court form used in most provinces by family law litigants to exchange financial information. It has six parts: 1) Income, 2) Expenses, 3) Property, 4) Special or Extraordinary Expenses, 5) Undue Hardship, and 6) Income of Other Persons in Household.
In my divorce, I had to complete five Form 8s. Every time there is a delay in your divorce it will more than likely require you to complete an updated Form 8. I can assure you they are far worse than filing your tax return.
