Under forms, you will see different sections with family law headings. Each of these forms are fillable from your computer. You do not need to pay for your forms when most of the forms for the state of California are available for free at this site.
Have an attorney review your paperwork prior to submitting them to the court
After you have filled out the paperwork needed for your divorce, child custody, etc, I would highly recommend you have a licensed attorney that specializes in family law, review your paperwork. You can still represent yourself, but you want to make sure that your motion is not denied or your paperwork is rejected because you have omitted something that the court requires.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.
