Who can help me in Broward County, Florida with legal document preparation? I'm trying to figure out how to do this supplemental petition for child custody, and I can't get it right. My ex lives with my son in Ft. Lauderdale, I live in Altamonte.

Legalese

by Karen
(Hernando County)

I was attempting to read a contract the other day and I couldn't begin to understand it.  Someone told me that's because it is written in legalese.  Can you explain to me what legalese is and why they don't just use regular English?

Where can I get help with understanding these documents?

I bought the divorce packet at the courthouse, and I can't make heads or tails of it. Do I seriously need all these forms???? Where can I get help with legal documents? Is that what this site does?

Thanks in advance.

Why do they use legalese? - Understanding Legal Information

DEAR FALDP,
I'm not trying to be smart or sarcastic, I really want to know. Why do they use legalese? Why do they use wording that is so hard to understand? Is there a reason, besides they don't want us to understand what we're signing? I guess "they" is lawyers, and everybody else that expects me to sign things I can't understand. And "us" is the general public.
