In recent years, divorce forms have become more accessible online. This has allowed couples seeking a divorce to go through a pro se route. Pro se means that the party is not represented by an attorney. These online forms allow the pro se party to prepare pleadings such as complaints on their own and file them with the Court. It offers an accessible option to those individuals who cannot afford an attorney. However, though it may seem easy and inexpensive to do the forms yourself it is best to be careful and still consider obtaining an experienced divorce attorney.
Online Divorce packets are free and easily available on your respective superior court’s website. Do not fall into the trap of paying for online divorce forms. It is important to pick the proper packet as there is normally two one for without children and one with children. Make sure to research before starting the divorce process by reading through articles available on lawyer’s websites. Consider consulting a divorce attorney. Paying a small consultation fee just to speak with an attorney about your case and receive legal advice could save money and stress on the backhand. Even if you have already started your divorce process, you can still consult with an attorney on the case. In the consultation, the attorney will give you a retainer quote which is the cost to take on your case.
Downfalls to using Online Divorce Forms
Remember once the Final Judgement and Decree of Divorce is signed and filed by the Judge the divorce is final. This means the Settlement Agreement incorporated into the Final Decree is final as well.
