The Perils of DIY Online Divorce

 Posted on December 00, 0000 in Divorce

online divorce, DIY divorce, Lombard divorce attorney, Lombard divorce lawyer, IllinoisWith the advancement of the internet, it is possible to enjoy all the goods and services we have become accustomed to without ever leaving home. We can order our groceries, style a new wardrobe, do our banking, pay bills and chat with our doctor all from the convenience of our homes. However, the internet does not make us all experts on everything. It is not recommended that you file for divorce online, where scams and false information can be common.

If you are contemplating divorce, the American Bar Association hosts an informative research page providing answers to frequently asked questions and a divorce term glossary. Reputable sites can be helpful but beware of lesser sites offering a quick and affordable online divorce options.

Websites offering you a quick, affordable online divorce can prove perilous for the following reasons:

  • These sites are often marketing ploys guaranteeing you a cost effective and quick uncontested divorce that in the long run may cause you more financial hardship and pose a possibility of identity theft;
  • Preparing divorce paperwork without the benefit of an experienced divorce attorney can lead to professional looking documents without legal substance that are often refused by the court;
  • Filing these documents can also lead to court sanctions because they violate various Supreme Court rulings;
  • These sites may offer you a quick dissolution of your marriage but may also impede the proper division of all assets and debts, especially when it comes to real estate issues;
  • If you have children, you could also experience unresolved custody issues and just further fuel the fire for possible custody conflict.

It is also questionable that these sites are hosted by practicing, licensed attorneys. If you are planning to file for divorce, your best option is to contact an experienced divorce attorney in your area to receive the legal representation you deserve to protect your assets, your identity and your future.
