DO IT YOURSELF DIVORCE
DIY DIVORCE LAWYERS
In some cases, couples may elect to file for divorce on their own. For instance, if there are no disputes to settle, so why should each party spend a ton of money for help with paperwork? However, the no-lawyer option of selecting and completing the correct online forms, completing the statutory child support and maintenance calculations, filing the case with the court and scheduling necessary court hearings on their own can soon become confusing and overwhelming in its complexity. So despite the fact that they have a simple, straightforward case, the legal process can be a nightmare. It also cannot be overcome without help from our do-it-yourself divorce legal consultants.
