We live in a world where we can now do pretty much anything online. Legal websites have popped up promising you that ‘quick, easy, cheap’ divorce. But everything comes with a price. There are some pretty hefty consequences in not doing your divorce right the first time.
1. No Divorce Is Simple
While it may seem like a simple split to some who mostly agree on everything, that can change in the blink of an eye. Divorces that might look easy tend to morph into a monster at the drop of a hat. Your spouse may currently agree with the plan you have put together, but as time goes by they may not be so nice. Discussing division of time with a child, assets, and debts is a very difficult and stressful discussion. Often times when couples are stressed, they start reverting back to the communication problems that caused the divorce in the first place.
2. You Get What You Pay For
Quality legal representation is expensive. There is a reason it costs a lot, because really understanding a person’s case, researching case law, and then representing them in a court room setting is extremely complex. It would be difficult for anyone to be able to do it without proper legal training. Online forms are unable to understand suttle nuances in the law like an attorney would. Having a person guide you through the process is key to getting your divorce completed correctly and quickly.
3. Outside Prospective
It is easy to get wrapped up in the strong emotions of divorce. It pays to have an attorney on your side that can provide valuable insight to your case. When you are faced with a choice, an experienced attorney will be able to explain all the different options and possible consequences of your choice. Making an informed decision on your future is incredibly important. That is something an online service just would not be able to do.
