If you and your spouse decided to file for divorce, your next step is to
execute the actual process and, considering how much of what we do these
days can be carried out online, using an online divorce service might
seem like a tempting option. After all, it costs less than hiring an attorney
and everyone is interested in saving money. However, if you cut corners
on your divorce, chances are that this seemingly convenient approach might
end up costing you in the long run.
Read on to learn more about the risks you face in choosing to use an online
Improper filing: Divorce is not a one-size-fits-all process and, as such, anything can
go wrong when you go down the path of using an online service. It will
not account for the specific complexities of your case and you risk improperly
filing your divorce papers.
Questionable preparation services: The internet is vast and endless and not every site you come across is
trustworthy. When you use an online service to prepare your divorce, you
are providing very personal information out there and putting yourself
at risk for identity theft and other personal risks.
Your ex might hire an attorney: You might be interested in shortcuts, but it is possible your soon-to-be
ex-spouse will hire an attorney. If this is the case, he or she will have
the upper hand in this situation since an attorney will be able to help
guide your ex-spouse through the process and ensure everything is properly filed.
