Online Divorce? Think Divorce Deja Vu

I’m a DuPage County uncontested divorce lawyer. I offer flat fees because I know people want to save money.

Are you sane? Then you don’t want to waste money on lawyers. So you might be temped to use a website to create your divorce documents.

But beware. You might experience “divorce deja vu” when you have problems years after your divorce.

You are taking great risks if you let a website spit out divorce documents for you. Websites are not lawyers. They cannot go to court with you. I am a lawyer. And I will go to court with you.

If you already know you need a lawyer for your uncontested case, contact an uncontested divorce lawyer here.

What is “online divorce”?

In Illinois, a person has to go to court once to get a divorce. It can’t all be done online.  People often ask me about online divorces because they’ve seen ads for it. But those ads are just for document preparation. Those “online divorce” sites are risky. They ask you for a bit of information, then spit out forms.

Avoid problems with a lawyer

One current client of mine was divorced years ago. Now, she is back in court because her divorce papers were laughable. Why? She used an “online divorce” website, and not a lawyer.

Another client of mine used forms spit out by a website. The forms contained information that is not permitted to be included by law in court files.

Some divorces cases cost people many thousands of dollars. Many lawyers who take those cases are very good. I have some of those types of cases. However, I also want to help people get amicable, quick, and affordable divorces in DuPage County.
