The EnlightenedDivorceBlog™ Strives to Be
the Most Relevant Divorce and Family Law Related Website
on the Internet!
I want to share with our readers something major that we've begun to
undertake, that as far as I know few have attempted.
I intend to make, over time and as quickly as
Michael Peterson and I are able given the demands our day-time family law practice, well
reasoned sample legal pleadings, discovery requests and exemplars, sample
declarations, points and authorities, and more that I've accumulated
over 31 years of family law litigation, practice, and mediation for free!
It is one contribution to the
InternetofEverythingDivorce, which for me means sharing specialized knowledge in the pursuit of better
informing others including legal consumers, divorce attorneys, and family
law judges about what we do all day long. Call me "crazy" (or
obsessed) because what Mike and I hope to provide will help to blow the
roof off the arcane legal guild of tacit agreement by family law attorneys
who, as with any other professional class for centuries, have controlled
access to their expertise. Google.com will help make this happen whether
here, or on the next website your visit.
The good news for lawyers is that this information sharing will only improve
our usefulness to our clients, and our personal satisfaction. The good
news for you - the family law legal consumer - is your own empowerment.
My intent is not to obsolete lawyers, because that isn't going to
happen, nor should it. Our is an honorable profession; it is just that
some don't need us as much as others do. There is a middle road.
Below I provide you the link to our new Divorce and Family Law Sample Forms
Portal. However, I do have some self-serving requests, before you enter
and some terms of engagement. These are as follows:
That you read and agree to abide by our
Disclaimer. By clicking through to our Thurman Arnold Forms Library, you are deemed
to have done so.
- That if you are a legal professional or manage a family law related website,
you not copy our content but instead link to us and provide us direct
attribution. Please summarize our content in your own words (or link directly) to us.
- If you are a legal professional and have something really well reasoned
and written, we invite Guest Blogs that will feature your practice in
your own locale. This includes Mental Health Professionals and Forensic
Accountants. Our standards are very high, however.
- That you understand that while we will provide the date of our sample form
uploads, we don't have the time to go back and update them if the
law changes. Again, we are just a small law firm and it takes huge time
to manage our divorce website pages. You use our materials at your own risk.
- That you be patient. I am pre-announcing this before I've gotten the
proper amount of materials uploaded, but am looking forward to working
hard to provide more divorce exemplars this coming weekend.
That you not call our office for questions unless you are prepared to engage us for a
Second Opinion, because our staff just can't handle the calls and we can't handle
the time, unless you are willing to pay us for that level of service.
We would be honored to talk to you if you feel we can provide you value;
otherwise, our contribution is what you find on this website and I beg
you to honor that so that I don't become exhausted in my efforts!
Importantly for us, please help others to find us, and this connectedness
comes in the form of
AVVO reviews, and/or
Google + Reviews. Social media is critical to helping others find us (we know, not
your "other"), and in sharing what we hope to give away. If your
time on our site wasn't wasted, please consider hitting a button or
two before you move on.
Finally, we pray that you always try to not "blow yourself up"
in your family law related cases, or consider that
going nuclear with aggressive attorneys or litigation tactics will only bite you hard, financially and emotionally!
We wish you a "mindful divorce"!
