Filing your divorce papers online


There are many services that offer divorce papers online and that advertise low-cost divorce fees. This many seem tempting but what you may not know is that these types of offers rarely include court fees or provide you with swift answers or action when you might need it the most. This is the key difference between using a solicitor and getting your divorce papers online. A solicitor will tailor their legal advice and sort out any financial or child custody issues as they arise in a way that suits you and promotes your interests. Online services cannot do this with the same degree of service.

Financial issues and those relating to the custody of any children of a marriage are the most difficult to deal with should you choose to complete your divorce papers online. Such a service may suit those couples who have a straightforward divorce situation - such as having no children or complicated assets to redistribute. It would also suit couples who have agreed between themselves on how ancillary matters should be dealt with following their divorce. However, often these matters are not as simple as you presume. For example, you may have agreed on details with your spouse, but then find out later that what you have agreed upon has actually put you at a disadvantage or has denied you something that you are legally entitled to. If you are using a divorce solicitor they will be able to tell you what you are entitled to following a divorce, and will be able to negotiate a financial settlement that best suits your needs and situation.
