Pro Se Survey - Legal Access
Thank you. We now have enough completed surveys to publish our results. We will be sharing those results very soon. And we will also post our next survey.
This is the first in a series of surveys about access to the legal system. This survey is for pro se litigants to share their information with us, so that we can learn how to help. If you are representing yourself in family or civil court, whether you initiated the case or it was initiated by another, we appreciate your participation.
Many people have participated in our survey in the short time that its been posted. We almost have enough information to draw some tentative conclusions. If you are a pro se litigant, and have a moment to complete our survey, you'll be helping us serve all Florida legal consumers better.
We haven't been able to locate recent or reliable information or statistics about pro se litigants in Florida. As legal document preparers, we often hear stories from our customers about their difficulties in accessing the legal system. With this survey, we are trying to take a more scientific approach so that we may be able to bring about change. We are in the process of developing additional surveys targeted towards other groups - legal document preparers, court personnel, judges, and attorneys.
Participation in our survey is completely voluntary and does not hinge on receiving any services or referrals through our association. We believe that pro se litigants are often at a disadvantage, and strive to help them overcome barriers to legal access. Completion of the survey is confidential.
