When you are facing a family law matter, having an experienced attorney at your side can help you find answers to your questions and feel supported throughout the process. Sometimes, however, you wish to handle the matter yourself. In these cases, it can be difficult to know how to locate the relevant paperwork that you need to complete in order to move through the process, or how to make sure it is received by the proper authorities. Let’s look at some helpful resources that can point you in the right direction.
Locating the Appropriate Forms
If you are filing for a divorce, petitioning for child support, or hoping to resolve any number of family law matters, you can find a list of all relevant documents here. You can download the forms you need and complete them by hand or on your computer. The individual forms contain directions on what information you need to provide and how to proceed with making sure the form arrives at the proper destination.
Some websites offer do-it-yourself packets for a variety of family law issues, like this one. Often sponsored by the Northwest Justice Project in Washington state, these DIY packets offer an overview of each legal matter, such as how to file a motion to adjust a child support order, or how to file for a divorce. Each packet provides all the required forms, instructions on how to fill them out, and how to file them. While DIY packets are designed to be user-friendly, questions may arise as you complete the paperwork. If you need assistance, it is helpful to reach out to an experienced family law attorney who can help you find the answers you need.
Support When You Need It
While some individuals find DIY packets useful and are able to resolve their legal matter on their own, many people prefer to work with a seasoned family law attorney to ensure they receive the best possible outcome.
