DISCLOSURE FROM NONLAWYER
Kenneth Rodman, told me that he is a nonlawyer and may not give legal advice, cannot tell me what my rights or remedies are, cannot tell me how to testify in court, and cannot represent me in court.
Rule 10-2.1(b) of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar defines a paralegal as a person who works under the supervision of a member of The Florida Bar and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a member of The Florida Bar is responsible. Only persons who meet the definition may call themselves paralegals. Kenneth Rodman, informed me that he/she is not a paralegal and cannot call himself/herself a paralegal.
Kenneth Rodman, told me that he/she may only type the factual information provided by me in writing into the blanks on the form. Kenneth Rodman , may not help me fill in the form and may not complete the form for me. If using a form approved by the Supreme Court of Florida, Kenneth Rodman, may ask me factual questions to fill in the blanks on the form and may also tell me how to file the form.
I can read English.
In general, we will send your completed documents within 7-10 days from the time you provide the facts and information necessary to complete the documents. We frequently are able to send your documents to you in less than 7-10 days. However, we do not guarantee a faster turnaround time, unless you submit payment for Rush Delivery, and we agree to it. If you have requested document preparation assistance for an Answer or other time sensitive documents, we will make every effort to accommodate your deadline. We try, but cannot guarantee, to complete Answers and return them to you within three calendar days.
For documents other than those for family law, we intake your information through a questionnaire. We send you the questionnaire after you submit payment through our site. Please answer all items on the questionnaire as completely as you can. If an item does not apply to you or your situation enter N/A. Returned questionnaires that are handwritten may be sent back to you with a request that you type it; or may entail additional charges over and above our flat fee.
It is your responsibility to proofread, check facts, make sure the documents are correct, etc. If you find errors, please contact us as soon as possible, and we will make corrections and resend at no additional charge. There is no charge for minor revisions; it is our discretion what revisions we consider "minor". We request that you proofread your documents as soon as you can. We cannot guarantee that even minor revisions will be made at no charge, if you wait more than 30 days to request them. Revisions requested more than 30 days after you have received your documents are subject to additional charges. Please proofread your documents thoroughly. We do our best to prepare error free or as close to error free documents as possible. However, we do make mistakes, and software is not perfect. Please try to find all errors at one time, and request corrections only once. This site, the site owners, or legal document preparers working through this site shall not be held responsible for any mistake, error, or omission in preparing these documents.
As far as we know, we are under no obligation to store your documents. As a courtesy, we generally retain your documents for 30 days, but do not guarantee that we will do so. We may store them for 30 days as a courtesy in the event that you request minor revisions or corrections, as 30 days is our time period to request those. If you request minor revisions or corrections on documents that we prepared more than 30 days prior to your request, we may still make those revisions or corrections, but you are required to send the documents to us in a format that we can revise, such as a .doc file, .docx file, or .rtf file. We cannot correct or revise pdf documents.
First time payments for all document preparation services are to be paid in advance on this website or through another way we have agreed upon. From time to time, at a customer's request, we accept payment through Google Pay, Paypal or other payment processor. If you need another way to pay, such as money order, or Western Union, please let us know in advance, so that we can accommodate you. Established customers may pay after work is completed and will be billed when the documents are ready to be sent. In that instance, we will advise you of the cost of your documents according to time logged, and then send you an invoice. Payment is due immediately upon receipt of the invoice. Documents will not be sent until payment has been made.

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.

Kenneth Rodman and Legal Doc Pro of Hillsborough County are not law firms, and are not acting as your attorney. This informational and legal 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. We do not predict outcomes and have no responsibility to know whether your documents are legally sufficient or not. 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 legal 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.

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. The Child Support Guidelines Worksheet is available on the Florida Supreme Court's site and includes a child support calculator.
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.
