We are looking for a very experienced paralegal to prepare uncontested divorce cases in all jurisdictions in Massachusetts. Most cases involve no real property or children. The cases are also filed by parties that are working together amicably to end their marriage. No cases involve protection orders, child neglect/abuse, etc. Each case is for a couple that simply wishes to end their marriage as economically as possible and without an attorney, although some may seek legal advice before or during the process. Further, the parties have already reached an agreement on everything (e.g. division of property/debts and child support/custody, if applicable).

The process involves you receiving a questionnaire completed jointly by the husband and wife. Based upon their answers you complete the appropriate pleadings and any known local forms. If clarification is needed regarding answers or incomplete responses, you draft one email requesting the necessary information and reply back us not. You will work anonymously and never be required to contact the client directly, not even via email. You would only draft emails that we send to the client. This is truly a 100% “back-office” operation on your end.

You must be very experienced with the Massachusetts dissolution process as well as the pleadings/forms. If you are experienced it should not take to much to complete an entire set of initial and final pleadings. Keep in mind these are very simple cases so both the initial pleadings and final documents are prepared at the same time.


• know all pleadings and forms that are required and how to complete them given the answers provided in the client questionnaire.
• require little supervision and know from Massachusetts family law experience what to do and how to do it.
• You must be a self starter and motivated to timely complete all tasks. Unfortunately, we do not have time to train you.

We offer a flat fee per case. We pay $30 for each completed case involving no children. We pay $40 per case involving children. We will pay you upon receipt of all the completed pleadings and documents. You will not be an employee, but rather a contractor providing case prep services. There is an opportunity of 2-5 new cases per day, 7 days per week. After earning over $600 you will receive a 1099-MISC as required by the IRS.

We will work with each other via email, although we may speak via telephone as needed. The process is rather simple, we email you completed questionnaires you then simple review the questionnaire and accept the case or you may request additional information or you may reject a case. In the later if a case does not meet our requirements you will reject the case. A case may be rejected because and you return all the completed case documents to us via email. If any clarification is needed this is addressed via email as well.

If this opportunity sounds interesting to you please provide us with your phone number, name and best time to call you. Please include a brief resume or summary of your relevant experience. There is no need to provide a cover letter but if you want to explain in a few sentences why you are qualified and would like this opportunity that would be welcomed. Do provide enough information to demonstrate you have the pertinent level of experience we seek.

Let us know how many cases you feel you can complete each day. When you respond use the subject “Massachusetts Telecommute Paralegal.” Failure to complete this subject line as indicated will most likely result in your application not being processed.
