About DivorceLawInfo.com and Richard Granat
This blog is authored by Richard Granat, a family law attorney based in Maryland, who is the publisher of this and other divorce web sites. One of my passions is figuring out how to help people divorce peacefully and get on with their lives, without spending thousands of dollars on legal fees. If you have children, the money is better spent on your children rather than on legal fees.
In the early days of the Internet, I become intrigued by the potential of the Internet as a means to lower the cost of legal services. In 1998, I established Granat Legal Services, P.C., to demonstrate the concept of a law firm delivering legal services over the Internet.
A virtual law firm is one which offers legal services in online at a price that people of moderate and middle income can afford. At about the same time I also created the Divorce Law Information Center to provide automated legal forms to consumers directly to enable them to represent themselves. Since then our enterprise has grown to over 40 state specific legal form web sites.
