What is a divorce paralegal?

Using the Service of a Paralegal

When trying to save a little time and money in filing for divorce, parties may want to consider using the services of a divorce paralegal to help resolve issues or draw up documents to be filed in court. The services of a paralegal can often save money because, while most are knowledgeable about the laws in question, they're not admitted to practice law in court. Paralegals would be to attorneys as physician assistants are to doctors. They oftentimes possess knowledge such that they can look over forms and settlement agreements and decide whether the attention of a divorce attorney should be sought to resolve the matter.
