Online divorce service MyDivorcePapers.com (MDP) works with many prospective clients, who are unsure whether they should hire a lawyer or handle the forms on their own. While it can be a challenging decision, the company insists it’s quite simple to determine the validity of DIY on a case-by-case basis. Here’s what they recommend.
One: Diagnose The Conflict Levels.
If you’re uncertain of how to handle the divorce papers, MDP suggests that you first start with the desire itself. “Is it a one-sided decision or something both parties want?” said a company representative. “Most cases go to trial, and that’s generally because most divorces are one-sided. If it’s something only one spouse wants, then it could be an uphill battle.”
Two: Develop A Paperwork Plan.
If the plan is to file for divorce without hiring a lawyer, then one should next develop a plan for how to go about it, the company advises. “Many people look at DIY divorce cases as being totally on your own, but it doesn’t have to be that way,” said the representative. “You can mutually agree on an attorney to help you fill out the paperwork, or you can use a forms prep service to walk you through the process.”
MDP notes that the attorney option — even in a no-conflict setting — is much more expensive than doing it yourself or with a forms prep service. “While it may be cheaper to fill out the paperwork on your own, it’s much more time intensive and subject to error,” the rep added.
Whichever path a couple ends up going, the final step in the DIY process is to file the papers — or have your attorney file the papers — with the county clerk, the company states. “Waiting periods differ throughout the country, so you may not see immediate action, but the less conflict, the faster it will go,” the rep said.
MyDivorcePapers.com provides affordable divorce forms solutions for those looking to file for divorce. Paperwork can be completed and compiled in 45 minutes for immediate use.
