Product details

Automated Florida Family Law Forms is a comprehensive collection of 190 forms, including both the Florida Supreme Court Approved Family Law Forms and the Florida Rules of Procedure Forms promulgated by the Florida Bar's Family Law Rules Committee. Also included are an additional 50 forms from board-certified matrimonial attorney and well-known Florida family law practitioner Brenda Abrams, drafted or approved based on her many years of successful practice. Automated Florida Family Law Forms is updated on a continual basis with new and revised forms to help you and your clients stay ahead of the curve.

Say good-bye to cutting and pasting, and the increased chance of error that goes along with traditional document preparation. Intuitive and powerful, yet simple to use, Automated Florida Family Law Forms allows you to complete client forms, save relevant case information and print out signature-ready forms with a few keystroke. Here's how:

Smart Formatting. Because it's fully automated with HotDocs®, appropriate pronouns and verbs are inserted for you, correct formatting is applied, and paragraphs properly numbered - everything complete in a fraction of the time it used to take. Calculations are performed automatically, including the Financial Affidavits, Child Support Guidelines Worksheet, and Marital Settlement Agreements.
Increase Accuracy and Eliminate Repetitive Typing. Enter case-specific information once and it is automatically inserted throughout the form where that information is required.
Easily Save Information. Save data you enter after completing a form into an "answer file" and use it to automatically complete other forms.

LexisNexis™ Automated Florida Family Law Forms includes the HotDocs® Player™ and is designed to work with your existing word processors, so there's no need to purchase expensive upgrades or additional software. Click here to view system requirements
