Electronic Servicing

This video outlines some things to consider before attending a Family Law court hearing. It will explain how you can plan your journey and what you should consider in advance of the court date, including accessibility needs and what documentation you are required to bring on the day.

LegalAtoms, the leader in electronic preparation and filing also allows law enforcement officials to reliably deliver electronically by relying on read receipts, and making it easier for respondent to digitally sign and acknowledge.

Even before COVID-19, serving clients is a time and labor intensive operation. While COVID-19 made it almost impossible, it led us to question why the universally available technology in delivering messaging and recording acknowledgements is not employed to improve serving reliability and cutting costs.

LegalAtoms provides multi-channel deliver using e-mail, text messaging, WhatsApp and social media.

How it works for the public

1. Eligibility and intake

A petitioner for Conservatorship or Guardianship would visit the LegalAtoms page to get an overview and answer questions online. Here's an example starting point.

2. Create Official Court Forms

Clients complete all questionnaires, ensure all the required elements are completed, and only then they can create a draft of the court forms.  This saves them time, and provides an ideal starting point for the independent counsel

3. E-file

LegalAtoms connects with all major Case Management Systems. Litigants can e-file directly into the system used by the clerks.

create court forms for restraining orders online
4. Collaborate with the Independent Counsel

Litigants can exchange documents, comments on documents, set appointments and hold video calls all from the secure virtual environment of LegalAtoms 

How it works for the Independent Counsel

1. Text/Email Clients Intake Link

Independent counsel can send a nice link to litigants. They can answer the questionnaires or if the case is already started, just upload the PDF documents.  

2. Answer questions in one go

Petitioners can document their questions next to the questions from the court forms. Later when the petitioner requests an appointment, both parties can join a built in video call, and the facilitator can step through all the questions in one go to get to completion with efficiency, and without wasting time on mechanical questions such as which form codes, versions or what's the process ahead.  But rather, focus on the more intellectual, difficult and meaningful part of their job. 

3. Intake and Appointments

Clients can step through online screening to check if they qualify for the free resources and then make appointments without taking time away from facilitators

4. Invoices and Accounting

Uniform way for the independent counsel to invoice the county court. 

Friendly for all ages


How deploying LegalAtoms is simpler

It is a software consists of a cloud based core, and then pluggable modules that allows court officials to manage the entire case lifecycle: from preparation to e-filing, to clerk review, judicial review and serving the parties.

Each module connects with the relevant existing software such as case management systems to allow courts to cherry pick the modules they are interested in without having to change the entire software stack.


LegalAtoms can be tailored for a court serving a few hundred constituents to one serving tens of millions. Such flexibility is
accomplished by offering a core Case Management System (CMS) and with add-on modules.

Each court can determine the modules they want to license based on their needs and requirements.

The modules are designed around specific roles or subarea such as law enforcement or jury management.


Case Prep

LegalAtoms breaks down legal cases preparation into a simple guided experience. Users are presented with one question at a time, along with precise info from court officials and lawyers, all in plain non-legal language. Upon completion, they can download or e-file the case documents.


Case Management System

This is the core engine which serves a court, and the primary user is the Office of the Clerk.

Clerks can move all the case information and all tasks around them online. They can receive court packets from clients, offer assistance, and pass on case within the court system to Judges or even external parties such as the law enforcement for serving the respondent.



Cases are presented in terms of sessions and hearings on a calendar which is more friendly for judges. Judges then can issue orders and pass on to the clerk for subsequent steps.


Law Enforcement

Law Enforcement can service documents electronically to the respondent and send updates back to the clerk



Clients can become aware of the court facilitators and advocates, on what they offer, and whether their situation qualifies for their help. Clients can then share their cases, and communicate with them seamlessly via integrated chat, and voice and video calls for added privacy and surveillance protection



Prosecutors have their view of case management system with ability to file charges and search relationships



Manage all aspects of a jury trials



Mediation agencies allow clients to screen themselves for eligibility, submit case documents, and schedule appointments.


Legal Clinics

Law schools can offer legal clinics to assist courts in providing legal help to the public all while improving the experiential learning modules for their clients
