Rocket Docket Legal Software is Windows-based document assembly software that leverages the power of HotDocs and Microsoft Outlook to fully automate legal forms in common practice areas such as criminal law, real estate, and divorce proceedings.
Much of the drafting work that attorneys do is repetitive, such as entering the same client data in multiple places and cutting and pasting boilerplate text back and forth between documents. When this happens, the possibility of error increases dramatically. Rocket Docket Legal Software helps lawyers avoid this problem by guiding them through a custom interview and then customizing the forms with the case and contact information. Rocket Docket then automates the process behind the scenes, merging everything into the proper forms and letters. This means an attorney can save significant time and remain error-free. Rocket Docket also incorporates jurisdiction and practice area-specific calculators, ensuring that no miscalculations occur.
This systemization is especially important when jurisdictions update laws and filing requirements and the court will no longer accept outdated forms. For example, in 2015 New York adopted a number of new rules that altered many of the uncontested divorce forms and formulas. If an attorney is using automation software that does not reflect the new forms, those filings might be rejected, which poses a serious problem.
Rocket Docket Legal Software incorporates all of the recent New York uncontested divorce changes into its automated workflows. Attorneys using Rocket Docket Legal Software can be sure they are using the updated forms. They can also be certain that their maintenance and child support calculations are correct, as the software will automatically calculate pursuant to the statutory formulas and insert that information into the correct form.
