Franchised Divorce Paralegal Service In Valencia

You probably don’t know what I am talking about when I say franchised Divorce Paralegal Services, but what I am referring is the “We The People” type paralegal services and talk about the differences.

First of all, if you live in Valencia, CA, there is not a We The People document preparation service. This was a franchise location which essentially means the people that worked there were not actual skilled divorce paralegals. The franchised document preparation service works much different than what our service provides.

(By the way, we provide a full service divorce solution throughout California. If you are looking to get a divorce and would like assistance, please give us a call for a free phone consultation at 661-281-0266. We have a full service and self-help service.)

The reason I bring this up is because we are often asked how we are different from other types of services. And we are able to distinguish ourselves from these franchised services in the following ways.

We are the ones that hold the legal document registration and have the experience specializing in divorce. Not only do we only handle divorce and family law related issues, but we have worked for the courts, worked in the court’s divorce self help centers and worked for some of Los Angeles Counties largest divorce law firms.

This is not the case with franchised types legal services or even the folks that provide numerous different legal document preparation services.

The folks that purchase franchise legal service business don’t have the experience to handle your divorce case. In fact, they don’t even handle the divorce paperwork at their location. They are usually just a conduit between you and the people actually preparing the divorce paperwork. This means that you are completing a questionnaire that is sent (out of state in some cases) and prepared by people employed for the master franchise owner.

Here is why you should be concerned with this. Who do you ask when you have questions? If you are not working with someone who has experience working with the courts and understands procedures, how do you expect to successfully negotiate the divorce process.

I felt I needed to bring this to light because we get way to many calls where people have gone to other services before finding us and who were not able to get their divorce case completed because they either lacked the skills to complete their divorce or the people they paid to help them with their divorce or they never got a return call once they gave their money to them.

The point it to use a service that is licenses, who has experience and who will get the job done.

Here is a pointer. It won’t be the cheapest guy on the block!

Do You Have Unanswered Questions About Divorce | Santa Clarita Divorce

I just had a client in the other day who had a ton of questions about divorce.  At one point in the conversation, he breathed a noticeable sigh of relief.

I knew what was happening, but still asked him what was going on in his head.  He said that he had so many unanswered questions about divorce that they just kept rolling around in his head.  He went on to say that he had tried to figure things out by researching online, etc but that without someone actually explaining them to him, he was having difficulty making sense of it all.  After speaking to me for about 15 minutes, he had all the answers.

So even though I write tons of content on our blogs about divorce, there is still that void of information. What I think it is, is that you can read about certain aspects of how divorce works, but it is difficult to apply what you read to your own situation.

There are also a lot of “What if’s” that people have about divorce.  Again, this goes back to applying the divorce process to your own particular situation.

So what do you do if you have unanswered questions about divorce.  Well, for starters, you can get a lot of information off this blog your reading right now.  Make sure to do some searches on our blog (not Google) and you will find more than 1000 articles that we have written.  In addition, we have over 100 videos and podcasts we have done.

But even after you do this, you are still going to have questions.  The best part is that we have the answers to your divorce questions and help answer them and apply the divorce process to your specific situation.

So after spending some time reading and learning, make sure to give us a call so we can discuss what exactly is happening and address your concerns so you have a better understanding of the divorce process in Santa Clarita.

How To Get Affordable Access To Divorce Services In Santa Clarita

I have spoke about the issues surrounding the high costs of obtaining legal services for divorce.  The costs are outrageous and folks going through divorce are no longer willing to pay these high costs.  Why?  Well, for one, they don’t see the value in what attorneys are offering.

Divorce attorneys are starting to feel the heat as more and more attorneys enter the marketplace and more and more potential clients opt for other solutions to assist them with their divorce.

Take our divorce services for example.  What started as a simple divorce document preparation firm now resulted in our handling even the most complex divorce cases that go to trial.  Of course, our clients are representing themselves, but they are saving countless thousands in legal fees.

The benefit is that they have professionally prepared divorce documents and access to our legal document assistants that have worked in the courts, for large law firms and in the self help centers who can provide information on court procedure and how to get through their divorce.

Demand for our divorce service in Santa Clarita is very high right now and I believe that divorce attorneys are losing business to us.  Of course, there will always be a need for legal advice and representation in court, but outside of that, we are able to take a divorce case from start to finish.

The interesting thing is that attorneys are trying to find a way around this and not lose business to companies like ours.  There is a lot of talk about unbundled divorce services, otherwise known as limited scope representation.

Whenever a client of mine has to use an attorney, I always advise them to use an attorney for in a limited scope fashion instead of an outright retainer for their services.  This is a more cost effective way of hiring an attorney for your divorce.

Attorneys have realized the need to provide limited scope divorce services because of the high cost of full attorney representation.  They realize that many people are unwilling to pay the high fees or flat out can’t afford it.  And if they want to capture some of that revenue they are going to have to figure out a way to offer services that are a little more affordable.


Divorce Service The Buzz Of Santa Clarita

Lately I have heard from several different sources that our divorce services are being talked about by many people in our Santa Clarita community.  And yes, the talk is all good.

This past week I was at BJ’s Brewery in Santa Clarita and sitting at the bar.  I struck up a conversation with 2 younger guys sitting next to me.  Long story short, they both worked for web developers here in Santa Clarita.  One worked for Scorpion Designs and the other for NextClient.  These companies provide a variety of web services for attorneys.

After mentioning who I was and what I did, they stated that they had recently been contacted by someone that does family law and told them that I was their competition.  I was quite fascinated to learn that another person in the legal industry had noticed my site and to the point that they told their web developers that I was their competition and that they wanted to have a website like mine.

It felt good to be acknowledged for the hard work that goes into writing my blogs and providing the divorce information in Santa Clarita.

The second time I heard folks talking about me was from one of my clients.  They said they were at a Santa Clarita hair salon having their hair done and in the chair next to her, she could hear them talking about my company and mentioning me by name.  The said the were explaining what a good, valuable service we provide.

So it was nice to hear, on two occasions, that people are talking about our divorce service.  We have certainly met a demand for providing a professional, affordable divorce service in Santa Clarita.

To those that are out in Santa Clarita talking about our divorce service and spreading the word, we thank you.  Please continue to talk about us and send us your friends, family and acquaintances.  We will take good care of them.


Divorce661 Meets Growing Demand For Affordable Divorce In Santa Clarita

As our business continues to grow by leaps and bounds, it is only because we are meeting a growing demand for affordable divorce services in Santa Clarita.

I believe the demand for affordable divorce services has always been present. The problem was that, until we arrived, there had not been anyone providing this service.

Furthermore, there has not been anyone talking about or marketing this business model.

People are starting to realize that they do not need an attorney to get divorced. Even in cases where folks were traditionally hiring attorneys for their divorce case, they are turning to us for an option that will not break the bank.

We are finding ourselves handing more and more complex divorce cases where people are interested in saving money, but at the same time receiving a high quality divorce service. Our clients are able to negotiate the divorce process and represent themselves due to our expansive knowledge on divorce and family law matters.

Where traditional document preparers stop at simply just filling out forms, we have taken it several steps beyond and assist people further by explaining the divorce process, how things work and prepare people to go into court when necessary.

We are the only ones to do this, because we are the only divorce service in Los Angeles County who have worked for the Los Angeles Superior Courts, Self Help Centers and major area family law firms. Nobody else has the experience we have therefore they are limited in the information they can provide.

Despite the fact that we provide a superior divorce service, we have kept our pricing model consistent with that of our competitors. We did not think raising our prices would make much sense. Instead, we felt that with our knowledge and expertise, we would simply provide a more valuable service for the same price.

Do You Need A Divorce Minute Order | Santa Clarita Divorce

What is a divorce minute order, when will you need one and how do you get one.  All that and more is answered by the article by Tim Blankenship with and discussed in the below video.

First off, let’s talk about what a divorce minute order is. A minute order is simply the court clerks detailed notes of what happened in a hearing or trial.  So you won’t have a minute order unless you have been to court.  So if you have had a trial or hearing and need to know what orders the court made on that date, you would get a copy of the minute order.

Now, why would you need one?   Most people will never need a minute order, but there are circumstances where you will.  One such circumstance is if you go to a hearing at divorce court asking the judge to make order after you had filed a motion.  So let’s say you filed a motion for spousal support or child support, the hearing was held and the judge made orders.

If you are representing yourself, the judge may ask you to prepare what is called an Order After Hearing.  It essentially is a “Order… After… The hearing.  You have to type of the order of the court and would use the minute order to get the exact language of what the judge ordered during the hearing.  When you submit the order after hearing back to the court for the judge’s signature, they will verify the language of the order matched that of the minute order.

In the video above we go into a little more detail about how to complete the order after hearing, but that will be for another blog post and another video down the road.

Now, now to you get a minute order.  This is quite simple.  All you need to do is go to the court room your case was heard in (if it was recent) and give the court clerk the date of the hearing and request the minute order.  If it has been several weeks and there are no future hearings, your file may have made it back to the storage area, in which case you would request it from the court clerk’s office.
