LegalAtoms - 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.
