Use Online Divorce Where You Can

Online divorce is always a wise choice for an uncontested divorce where the parties are in agreement, there is not a large marital estate, there are no complex legal issues and there is no domestic violence or the threat of domestic violence.

Avoid Unlicensed Online Divorce Mills

However, the whole point of online divorce is to keep your cost down. If you pay $300 to an unregulated non-lawyer online divorce mill and you end up paying for their mistakes forever, that’s NOT a cheap divorce.

Avoid Traditional Divorce Lawyer Churners and Grinders

Traditional California divorce lawyers want to charge you a $3500-$7500+ retainer fee and get rid of that retainer as fast as possible to get you onto the $300-$450 billable hour treadmill.

That’s because they don’t know what else to do.  Churning through client money is the only thing they’ve ever done. And they have not been among the very few competitive California divorce lawyers who have adopted online divorce as an additional service offering.

Traditional lawyers will trick you into hiring them by scaring the crap out of you on some issue that could happen in your case but almost certainly won’t. 

Then, when they’ve got your money, you have to disclose your assets and debts to them as part of the California divorce process. So they know EXACTLY what cash and assets you’ve got as well as your credit card balances.

All they need to do from that point is churn. Requests for Orders, Discovery Requests, Discovery Responses, Hearings, Interrogatories, Postponements, Trial Briefs, etc., etc. until your cash and assets are gone. 

If your spouse has a lawyer too, the 2 lawyers will do their dance until neither one of you has cash or credit left. Then they’ll recommend that you settle your case and tell you what a great job they did.

Don’t fall for this nonsense. There are times when you will need such lawyers (and if your simple uncontested blows up, you will need such lawyers), but not in a simple uncontested California divorce.

Avoid unnecessary and dishonest lawyer churners. Know your cost up front.

Get the Best of Both Worlds

Hire a savvy, competitive local California divorce lawyer who offers online divorce to protect your legal and economic interests and safeguard you from the high risks of unregulated online divorce mills and dishonest traditional divorce lawyer churners.

You get all of the protection of using a California divorce lawyer at a fraction of the price of the dishonest traditional divorce lawyer churners. 

And if any problem does arise, or even if your case completely blows up, you already have a California divorce lawyer on your team. You only use your California divorce lawyer when you need your California divorce lawyer. And you only pay for services you need. You do not automatically overpay just because something MIGHT go wrong.
