Here is how our service works: breaking down the
The how it works boxes scattered across our site are only a glimpse
of everything that happens behind the scenes. Of course you won't
have to worry about it because that's our job. However, to truly
appreciate this liberty and opportunity, we feel that it is crucial
for you to really understand how divorce is done in this do-it-yourself
fashion and how our services tie into it.
Here is what
enables us to do your divorce:
The answer is simple. It is You and Your Constitutional Right
to represent yourself in court.
In other words,
- Did you ever dispute a ticket in court? If so, did you
bring a lawyer? You have the option to, and few people actually
do, but the majority don't because they exercise their rights.
- The same concept applies to a no-criminal legal matter
like divorce. You didn't need a lawyer to get married...
so why do you need one to get divorced? Popular belief perhaps?
Here is the bottom line:
If you and your spouse can settle your differences regarding
property, children, support... outside of the court room and
sign an agreement (divorce forms) saying so then you don't
need a lawyer. Simply file the forms and let a judge approve
the proposed agreement and terms of divorce.
Either that or you can let the Judge decide what happens
to the kids, pets, cars, debt, property, assets... because
the Judge knows best. That also means that you and your spouse
will pay lots of money to your respective lawyers or as we
call them "expensive negotiators" where at the end
of the day, no matter how expensive they are, the decision
still rests with the judge.
Divorce in a Nutshell:
The process is similar in most states and fairly simple:
- You file the divorce forms asking the court for a divorce
based on terms stated in the forms.
- You notify the other party (your spouse) of the proceeding
and show the court that you did so.
- The court sets a date for you to be seen by a judge. Your
spouse usually doesn't have to attend.
- The judge goes over your forms and puts in requested orders
(child support, property, etc...)
- The judge may ask a few questions before signing the forms
and thereby finalizing your divorce.
Note that the first and most important thing is filing the
forms. It gets the case started and tells the judge what you
want done in your divorce at the end. We take care of the
forms because the rest is just a walk in the park in uncontested
Here is what we do in respect to the divorce process:
We collect payment and information
regarding your case. The information is collected using a
questionnaire available for download at the end of the ordering
process. You complete the questionnaire and send it in to
us for processing.
Our staff prepares your divorce
forms based on the said information. Once that is done, we
email you with the forms. You review them on your computer.
If adjustments need to be made, let us know and we will make
necessary adjustment. If you are happy with the forms and
no adjustments need to be made, let us know and we will provide
you with further instructions. You will sign and file the
forms according to those instructions. We also help you do
whatever else needs to be done...such as serving the spouse.
The court will arrange a date
for you to be seen by a judge. Notification usually happens
when you file the forms or shortly thereafter by mail. Don't
be intimidated by the fact that you will go in front of a
judge. You are simply there to ask the court to grant you
a divorce. It is a risk-free procedure and it is simply the
way it is done by law. Your spouse typically does not have
to attend. Check with us to be sure. We provide you with instructions
on how to handle the court date. The judge will ask you a
few simple questions regarding the case... mostly just to
confirm the requests. To help you answer those questions and
give clear statements in the process, we provide you with
sample courtroom statements which you can use to draft your
own set of statements. The judge will give you the divorce
judgment and sign your forms. It all typically takes only
10 to 15 minutes and you will be officially divorced thereafter.
The best thing about it is that this method is already widely
accepted by the courts and it's as legit as getting somebody
to prepare your taxes.
Our Guarantee, or safety net, ensures that we
produce the proper forms since they are [as mentioned above] the
most important part of the divorce process. If we fail to deliver,
you get your money back.
We hope you can follow along and see how everything ties into the
- Free unlimited adjustments.
- Free sample courtroom statement.
- Free maiden name re-instatement.
- Free Marital Settlement Agreement.
- And more...
Why choose us?
We have successfully divorced enough people to safely say that
we are one of the best in the industry. Our company is also one
of the few that still uses real people (paralegals) to prepare your
forms and instructions. Most everybody else has moved to automated
software systems because it's cheaper...yet the cost of their service
is typically more. Go figure. And while an automated system is good...it
doesn't comprehend the logic necessary to do divorce forms right.
