When people decide to get a divorce, they often assume that they will be able to handle the process on their own. After all, there are many resources available online and in libraries that can provide information about the divorce process.
In addition, there are now many do-it-yourself divorce kits that claim to make the process easy and straightforward. However, what these resources don't always mention is the role of paralegals in the divorce process.
Paralegals are professionals who provide assistance with legal matters, and they can be valuable assets during a divorce. While paralegals cannot represent clients in court, they can provide important guidance and support throughout the divorce process. They can help with document preparation, research, and communication with the other party's attorney.
As a result, paralegals can play a vital role in ensuring that the divorce process runs smoothly. However, it is important to remember that paralegals are not lawyers, and they cannot give legal advice.
