What Are the Risks of Online Divorce Services?

It’s no secret divorces can be expensive. According to some estimates, the average cost of a divorce in Florida will cost around $13,500 without kids and $20,300 with kids. The more complicated a divorce tends to be, the longer it takes and the more expensive it becomes. Some online companies have begun advertising affordable divorce services, tempting people who want to save money by buying into the service. However, not all of them are trustworthy.

These services are mostly like any other online service; they provide bare-bones support and appropriate legal forms for a legal divorce.  The problem with this method for divorces is it treats the process as a simple and uniform, though no two divorces are exactly alike. This cookie-cutter approach often leaves people on their own to fend for themselves, which might not result in the best-case scenario.

The more complex a divorce is, the more likely the generic formula provided by an online service will not be able to address your concerns, leaving you with more questions than answers. You then are left with the task of making decisions you might not fully comprehend, which might not be easy to resolve later.

Likewise, while these online services may promise a quick and easy divorce, they might not mention the extra fees and prices tacked on until you check out. So, what started as a $200 divorce might become a $800 divorce after all is said and done.
