Online Uncontested Divorce FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

You don’t!  We suggest that Online Divorce PRO is a convenient gateway to a local Legal Document Assistant who will save you from the high risk of hiring an online divorce mill.  However, the primary point we are making to you is that you should be aware that you now have other options.

You don’t have to hire a high-risk unqualified online divorce outfit for $300 and pay for their mistakes forever.  And you also certainly don’t have to hire an old-fashioned local divorce lawyer in your town on a traditional basis and pay him or her $3500-7500 for services you don’t need in your uncontested divorce.

Most Legal Document Assistants in California do NOT offer genuine online divorce – with a client portal for you to log into and provide all of the data in your case from the comfort of your home or office. Not all Legal Document Assistants have the competitive edge to sign up for Online Divorce PRO service. We hope that you will reward those who do.

Online Divorce PRO stresses to its Legal Document Assistant sign-ups that they keep their fees down.  If we see any LDA overcharging, we don’t let him or her on-board.  Our LDA’s really should be the most competitive AND the most affordable.

That’s why Online Divorce PRO is an excellent tool to connect you with a Legal Document Assistant in your area.

Regrettably, yes.  Divorce is a business that went online easily and as early as 1999. Because the online divorce mill could be anywhere in the world and because your state’s laws and consumer fraud regulations don’t apply to them if they are outside your state, they came to realize that they can do almost anything they want to you and your case. You have very little, if any, chance to resolve any issue arising from the fraud or incompetence of any out-of-state divorce mill.

See a good overview of the rampant fraud from unqualified online divorce mills. Also, see the Online Divorce Association of America which has been trying unsuccessfully to get online divorce mills to agree to a basic Code of Ethics. They won’t. Why should they? Online divorce fraud pays them very well, and you can’t touch them. Why would they stop?

When the con-men in the divorce mill business see any attempt to name and shame them, all they do is put up another 2 or 3 so-called “online divorce review” sites, which are owned by the divorce mill they recommend.  As a result, unsuspecting divorce consumers are tricked into hiring what they think is a reputable online divorce company.

Online divorce mills are almost completely fraudulent and incompetent, and YOU, the California divorce consumer, are the target.

First, bear in mind that you pay Online Divorce PRO nothing. Our LDA finder service and our California divorce document preparation are free to you.

More precisely, you pay the Legal Document Assistant in your area, and they pay Online Divorce PRO for the services we provide to them.

All Online Divorce PRO Legal Document Assistants are independently owned and operated.  As such, each Legal Document Assistant determines the fees to be charged and the services to be offered.

However, you will find that most Online Divorce PRO Legal Document Assistants have recognized the wisdom of offering competitive fees, often close to the average $300-$450 fee (including all of their monthly fees that are not disclosed to you upfront) offered by many unqualified divorce mills.

There would be very little point to a non-competitive, over-priced Legal Document Assistant signing up for Online Divorce PRO service when we advertise the wisdom of lower fees coupled with unbundled services and numerous virtual techniques.

Most Online Divorce PRO Legal Document Assistants are in the $500 to $900 range per case for a complete uncontested divorce, depending on what is involved in your uncontested divorce.  Be sure to check what services are included in the offered fee. With an Online Divorce PRO LDA you will always know your flat fee upfront and you will know what is included.

The vastly increased value of such an offer, compared to the risk of using an unqualified divorce mill, makes Online Divorce PRO Legal Document Assistants an attractive proposition for a savvy divorce consumer.
