The Risks of Using an Online Divorce Service


Divorce can sometimes be a pricey proposition for couples who wish to end their marriage. Although using an online divorce service sounds like a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to accomplish this task, it can actually result in some serious mistakes and may create some unnecessary delays. Ultimately, there is no substitute for hiring an experienced family law attorney to guide you through the process and protect your best interests.

Why it is a Bad Idea to Use an Online Divorce Service

Every divorce is unique in its own way, even if you and your spouse agree on every key issue. Unfortunately, online divorce services do not account for the subtle differences in each case and, instead, offer a cookie-cutter approach without any legal advice on how to navigate the provided forms. Moreover, you might even receive forms that are unnecessary for your specific circumstances, which can add to the confusion.

If your spouse is hiding assets or marital property, this is another issue the online divorce service you use will not take into account. Without an attorney to look into the matter and ensure all assets are accounted for and divided fairly, you may end up missing out on your rightful share of marital property. In your attempt to save money on your divorce, you could end up losing a lot more than you bargained for.

Additionally, it is important to keep in mind that the internet is not always completely trustworthy. The information you provide, such as your credit card information, bank information, social security number, and more can all fall into the wrong hands if the site you are using is not secure, or worse, a scam.

Ending a marriage is a difficult experience in itself, so forego any unnecessary headaches by hiring an attorney instead of using an online divorce service.
