Shonda Robinson's Secretarial Services Disclaimer are not law firms, and are not acting as your attorney. This informational and qualified document service is not a substitute for the advice of an attorney. We cannot provide legal advice and can only provide self-help services at your specific direction. We are not permitted to engage in the practice of law. We are prohibited from providing any kind of advice, explanation, opinion, or recommendation to a consumer about possible legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms or strategies. This site is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship, and by using this site or our document preparation services, no attorney-client relationship will be created between us. Instead, you are representing yourself in any Court matter you undertake. As part of our document service we include a review of your answers for completeness, spelling and grammar, as well as internal consistency of names, addresses and the like. Although we review your documents for typographical errors and proofread your documents prior to delivery you are ultimately responsible for correcting any and all errors in your documents. As a matter of policy we will make corrections and minor revisions at no additional charge. At no time do we review your answers for legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. This site and its services are not a substitute for the advice of an attorney.
If you need legal advice for your specific problem, or if your specific problem is complex, you should consult a licensed attorney in your area. We are not responsible for any loss, injury, claim, liability, or damage related to your use of this site or any site linked to this site, whether from errors or omissions in the content of our site or any other linked sites, from the site being down or from any other use of the site. In short, your use of the site is at your own risk.
In some cases we will provide you with a blank form as part of our document preparation packet. For example, we prepare forms for dissolution of marriage, but we generally do not prepare the Family Law Financial Affidavit, or a Child Support Guidelines Worksheet. We provide you with a blank form.
Court filing fees are never included in our document preparation fees. Court filing fees are separate and to be paid directly to the clerk of court when you file.

First time payments for all document preparation services are to be paid in advance. Established customers may pay after work is completed and will be billed when the documents are ready to be sent. Payment is due immediately upon receipt of the invoice. We reserve the option to delay the release of your documents until after you have paid. In that instance, we will advise you of the cost of your documents according to time logged, and then send you a request for payment.
All payments are final. Refunds will be issued at our sole discretion. In general, we will issue a refund if no document preparation work has begun. We consider that document preparation work has begun when we have collected your information from you verbally; or we have sent you a form or questionnaire to collect your information. We may, in our sole discretion, issue a full or partial refund even though your document preparation work has begun. Issuance of a partial refund or full refund is not to be considered an admission that we made errors in preparing your documents. Issuance of any refund is our attempt to defuse a potential dispute.
First Time Customers - We may answer questions before you decide to use our services, however, our obligation to you officially begins when you make payment. If before making payment, your inquiries whether by phone or email, require us to spend undue time with you -- we will direct you to make payment immediately. And we also may advise you that we must charge you for future phone calls and email correspondence.
