What Sets Us Apart from the Rest

If you’re shopping for document preparation services, this page may give you some ideas of what questions to ask.

Why Our Business is Different than Others

Florida Court Forms Preparation Service

  • We are family owned and operated;
  • We abide by a published Code of Ethics;
  • Our office is in Florida.   We are not a dot com business or a nationwide forms-bank run by computers;
  • We lease four suites in the Daytona Beach Professional Building.  We are not a home based or part-time operation;
  • Our employees are all full time.  This is their career and their commitment;
  • Our business structure is real and verifiable.  We are a properly registered Florida corporation, and we hold an active city and county business license.  Our d/b/a for Florida Document Specialists and Florida Family Adoptions are real and verifiable:
  • We are accredited by the Central Florida Better Business Bureau (BBB) where we are A+ Rated and 5-Star Reviewed;
  • We are a certified member of the FALDP, the Florida Association of Legal Document Preparers;

  • We encourage extreme vetting.  Please check us out;
  • We’re accessible. We answer our telephone during business hours;

  • We promptly reply to email;
  • Our website operates with an SSL security certificate.  Please take note of the “https://” and the “Locked” symbol in your browser;

  • We pay for monthly subscriptions for cutting edge data backup/synchronization, customer/case management, and immigration document preparation software;
  • Sensitive information collected in our online questionnaires is encrypted prior to transmission.  We contract with a third party to provide this service.  It is the same online forms provider used by Oracle, eBay, Walgreen’s, and FedEx.
  • We follow the law.  If another service is advertising as a “paralegal, paralegal service, or legal assistant“, and they aren’t supervised by an attorney, they are not following the law.

Value-Added Services that Make Us Different

  • We will never charge you just to talk to you, whether it’s on the phone, or in person, the first time or the 100th;
  • You will work with a real person, not an automated system or a phone tree;
  • We are not a “Virtual Service” – if you see this term, it usually means that someone will just email you a stack of papers to print and send you on your way;
  • Your’re welcome to meet us and tour our offices prior to working with us;
  • All forms and documents are typed by a real person.  All you really have to do is review them and sign;
  • We strive to produce a quality product that will help you achieve your goals;
  • All of our services are quoted at a fixed price.  There are no hidden charges, hourly rates, or surprises.  The price we quote you is for the preparation of every document needed to properly file your case, AND for any additional document that court may ask for at a later time.  Some lesser services attract customers by advertising a low price only to tell you later that important documents such as financial affidavits, parenting plans, marital settlement agreements, and other documents are not included;
  • Some customers need emotional support or a little extra care.   We’re up for that;
  • We accept payments.  We’ll ask for a deposit on all quotes over $200, and we’ll ask that your account be settled prior to filing your case.  We will work with you;
  • Our quote includes a personal meeting with us for signing and notarization of your documents.  For all adoption cases and some family law cases, we will personally meet with you anywhere in the State of Florida.   All of our travel is included in our quote.  For matters where a personal meeting is not feasible, all of your USPS Priority Mail Service (with tracking number) is included at no extra charge;
  • If your spouse or another party to your case is absent and can’t be located, a Florida licensed private investigator will conduct a nationwide diligent search and typically have results for you within 24-hours.
  • Will file your case for you.  You read correctly.  We handle everything;
  • We manage your service of process for you.  This means we will coordinate with process servers in Florida or anywhere in the United States to get your papers served.  We follow up with them, accept their affidavits of service or non-service, and file them with court on your behalf.   We provide all of the postage and office supplies for this at no extra charge;
  • We have State of Florida e-filing capability for your case if needed;
  • As your final hearing draws near, we will prepare your final judgments for you and give you postage paid envelopes to give the court at no extra charge;
  • We will monitor your case docket for irregularities;
  • We provide free, lifetime notary services for former customers;
