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 self help facilitators

KiosksQueue
1. Eligibility and process

Cut phone volume and staff time spent with the public. Offer very detailed online legal information on steps involved in filing a legal case, be it the petitioner or the respondent.  Offer various screening tools so people can figure out answers to common questions by carefully stepping through a guided online experience.

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.

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.

Modules

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.
