Did you know that the average cost to hire an attorney for a family law case if California is $2,500 and that their average hourly rate is $300.00 per hour? I’ve had a Family Law practice for over 22 years and I am always surprised by the number of individuals who choose to represent themselves.  I understand why, it can be costly to hire an attorney. 

The State of California has recognized this fact as well and designed the system for you to do it yourself.  The State has reduced the number of documents required and provides pre-printed forms; it  should be easy, but it is not. I have watched over the years while litigants representing themselves fail to file the right documents or file them with incorrect or missing information, often resulting in a failure to have their case heard by the Judge.  This “do-it-yourself” system is missing one very important element – comprehensive help for the litigant.  Yes, some counties offer Self-Help Centers but these centers are on a first-come first-served basis and have very limited hours. 

This is why I have developed a comprehensive workshop so that you can “Do-It-Yourself/Not By Yourself.”  For only $250.00, my all-day workshop will take you through all of the necessary steps from the commencement of your Paternity case:

  • filing your paternity motion
  • writing your personal declaration to get your point across to the Court
  • navigating the child support system
  • filing your paternity motion
  • tips for the the mandatory mediation process
  • how to handle yourself before a Judge

I am reminded of the saying “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. When you complete this course you will have the knowledge and confidence to represent yourself for the life of your case.  Register now to learn how to DO-IT-YOURSELF/NOT BY YOURSELF.
