Turning California Divorce Document Preparation Business Upside Down
This is kind of just a plug about our business not a whole lot of incites like the rest of our several hundred videos that we’ve normally done.
I just want to kind of let folks know that we have been acknowledged as one of the few individuals, me specifically who has been able to take this business of legal document preparation from what is normally been a part time or on the side type of job.
Legal document assistants are generally there to help lowly income individuals who can’t afford attorneys, basically help those people through a certain legal matters.
And I’ve turned that idea upside down and what we have done is instead of going after low income families, because honestly there are hundreds of programs, pro bono attorneys and system in place for those folks.
I’ve turned this on its head and we now have created the legal document profession, at least from our view point, no one else is doing this yet aside from us and our target market is people with higher incomes.
People who would normally use an attorney, who don’t want to spend the money on an attorney or to have amicable case where divorce attorneys just aren’t necessary. And we’ve taken a lot of business away from attorneys.
It’s not that we are harming them, we don’t compete with them. In fact, we don’t do the same thing. We don’t give legal advice or go to court.
We’re handling cases where people who are trying to get through their divorce on their own, they want to save some money.
So we’re not helping the low income or people without money. We’re helping people who want to save money, who probably have money for attorney but there’s no need for it or they don’t want to spend the money on an attorney.
By turning this upside down we have established our self and for probably the first times are running a successful legal document preparation business and helping people in the higher income earners get through divorce. Complicated cases, the idea is that there is somewhat amicable and trying to begin through it together.
The reason I bring this up is I receive a phone call from someone who does this as well, what we do and they basically said they’ve been doing this for 18 years and they have been able to turn this into a successful full time business and I think what it boils down to is flat out turning this process on its head.
Not going after the target market that this industry was specifically built for and what honestly the association called the California association of legal document assistants.
They promote that this business should be for low income earners and we have gone against the grain on that 100% and probably one of the first times turn this into a business model that really helps people that don’t have a help available to them.
Talking about, if you are low income there are hundreds of program out there, free services, pro bono services, self-help centers, etc. If you are the 80% or 90% of people who don’t qualify for free services, that is the biggest chunk of society that we’re going after.
And it’s been a very successful model for us. So, I apologize for the plug on our awesomeness but I just wanted to let our folks know that’s what we’re doing, that’s what we’re here for and we have now been deemed the go-to-folks in California for affordable divorce cases and assistants.
