If you are representing yourself in a family law case and need legal advice or help with your paperwork, then you have come to the right place. Self Help Legal Services can help you at a reasonable cost when you are:

  • Filing for divorce
  • Seeking alimony
  • Pursuing full or majority custody/time sharing
  • Establishing paternity for visitation rights/time sharing
  • Consensual stepparent adoption

  • My name is Lorraine H. Sherman and I am a licensed, practicing attorney in Florida. I’m also a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator and work as a program mediator for the Eighth Circuit. I have been practicing family law for 16 years, I’ve handled close to 1,500 cases and have conducted approximately 170 bench trials. My law practice has taken me to 37 counties throughout the State of Florida.

    I can help you at all stages of your case from the first pleading filed to preparing for mediation, trial and a final judgment. I can help you with any family law case you have including: asking for majority time sharing, custody, or visitation, filing for divorce or paternity, whether you’re asking for alimony or objecting to alimony, seeking consensual stepparent adoption, whether you want to relocate with the children or if you are objecting to your children relocating.

    You can get the benefit of having an attorney’s help to guide you through the steps of your marital and family law case at a price you can afford. My knowledge, information and experience will equip you with the tools you need to represent yourself in court effectively.

    I offer the professional guidance you need to represent yourself in court at an affordable price. If you are in the middle of a family law case and need the help of an attorney "behind the scenes," then call me at 866-288-4411 today for a free consultation.

    How self-help legal services can help you

    Legal Advice

    I will advise you on your rights and obligations when you are going through any family law case. I can tell you whether you are entitled to alimony or whether you are at risk to pay alimony. I will advise you on the statutory factors related to time sharing or custody and visitation. I will run a child support guideline so you will know how much child support you can expect to pay or receive. I can also advise you of whether you are at risk to pay attorney’s fees or if you may be entitled to attorney’s fees.

    I will counsel you on actions you should take and actions to avoid doing during a divorce or other family law case. I will also provide you with a copy of the standing family court order for your county.

    Filing for divorce? Paternity? Relocation?

    I will personally discuss your case with you and prepare all of your necessary forms. If we meet personally, I can provide notary services and will also provide you with copies. It is not necessary, however, to meet in person. Self-help legal services is a Florida statewide service and all services can be conducted by phone.

    Filing for a modification or enforcement?

    Again, I will personally discuss your case with you and prepare all of your necessary forms. If we meet personally, I can provide notary services and will also provide you with copies. It is not necessary, however, to meet in person. Self-help legal services is a statewide service.

    Do you have an emergency?

    I will fill out the proper form if you need an immediate child pickup order or if you have some other emergency such as danger to the children, lost utility services, foreclosure, etc.

    Resources

    I will provide you with phone numbers and fax numbers for judges, clerks, mediation clinics, court reporters and parenting classes.

    Level the playing field

    If you are up against an attorney, you can level the playing field by having an attorney behind the scenes preparing your paperwork, providing you with critical information and coaching you on important court events.I will help you prepare for trial so you can effectively represent yourself in court. I can give you tips on the basic rules of evidence, advise you on what evidence you should present to the court, and give you the tools you need so you can submit your evidence before the court. I can help you get witnesses subpoenaed and help you prepare your questions. I can also help you get documents subpoenaed and teach you how to enter those documents into evidence.
