Online Divorce Mill
Most Charge $300; Others Claim $139-169 is the Total Price But Have Many Hidden Fees, such as a $125 "Expedite" fee (or you have to wait 10-12 days to get your docs) or a $199 "Premium Package" Fee; Constant Up-Selling
Unknown - None Required
Almost Always in Another State or India
Likely None; Maybe Through THEIR Local District Attorney or State Attorney General for Blatant Consumer Fraud, but Very Difficult For You to Pursue; Also, No DA's in India; If Things Go Wrong, You're On Your Own
Unknown; High Risk; Hit or Miss; Low-Quality Training; High Turnover of Untrained Low-level Staff
No - State Forms Only - No Local County Forms - Every Case Has Local County Forms
No - Not Qualified: But Doesn't Do It Anyway; Some Will Upsell You to Local Lawyers for Legal Advice or Other Legal Services, but Only AFTER You Are Fully Paid
Generally No; Low-Quality or No Customer Support; No Reason To Provide Quality Support; High Turnover of Low-Quality Untrained Staff; You're On Your Own
Always Claimed, but Often There is Rampant Up-Selling of Undisclosed "Expedited" Service Or Other Add-ons
No - If You Need Legal Advice or Additional Legal Services Such As Mediation or a QDRO, or If Your Case Blows Up, They Will Up-Sell You To a Local Lawyer Who Has Subscribed Your Zip Code and Pays for the Referral; Why Not Start With That Local Lawyer at Similar Cost and Be Covered for All Risks?
$300 for a Few State Docs; THAT'S IT. No Reliable Client Support; No Legal Knowledge; No Legal Advice; No Local Knowledge; No Accountability; No Professionalism; Rampant Up-Selling; Many Hidden Fees and Shady Practices; This is Not a Good Deal! This is High Risk! If You Never Stop Paying for Their Mistakes, That's NOT a Cheap Divorce
