Family Law Self-Help Program
Can the Self-Help Program Help You Protect Your Rights as a Father?
Yes, most times it can. If you and your ex get along, are already separated, and she has served you with self-help paperwork, you can protect your rights as your own attorney through self-help forms. Use of these forms can save you money, and keep a good co-parenting relationship intact, regardless of who starts the process.
The Florida Courts website provides a list of self-help forms for family law matters, including:
- Divorce (Dissolution of Marriage)
- Judgments and Orders
- Parenting Coordinating
- Parenting Plan
- Disestablishment of Paternity
- Representation Forms, Petitions, Supplemental (Modification) Petitions, Answers, and Supporting Documents
- Temporary/Concurrent Custody
Quality Advice for Self-Help Litigants
Would you like a father’s rights lawyer to review your self-help paperwork? You can benefit from having a licensed attorney look over your self-help forms to make sure everything looks okay. Our legal team at DADvocacy™ Law Firm can do that. Let us read the legalese and calculate the math for child support orders and other obligations.
However, if you are dealing with a governmental agency as an opposing party, such as the Child Support office, the State Attorney’s Office, or the Department of Children and Families, we recommend you run – not walk – to an attorney’s office for a consultation. It is vital that you seek the professional advice of an experienced family law attorney. We offer traditional representation with father’s rights attorneys who have extensive experience with the Child Support Office.
