Everything You Wanted To Know About Divorce
Divorce Decree PPP.jpg


     When my toilet stopped flushing, I called a plumber. When the air conditioner stopped working, I called the air conditioner repair service. When the red engine light goes on in your automobile, you take to an automobile repair shop. I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea.

When you need a Divorce, you can call an attorney who specializes in divorce. Most people understand how expensive attorneys are, so they look to the internet for a less expensive alternative. This is where you will find all kinds of offers to help you with your divorce. Most offer to sell you their services for anywhere from $99.00 to $139.00. The question is, what are you really buying? Let me explain.

  • 1.     They are offering to sell you a package of Divorce forms that have been filled out by a computer which has asked you a series of questions. These documents are only to be used by individuals who are in complete agreement of getting a divorce, and are willing to sign all these documents in front of a Notary Public. They send these documents to you or you can download them and print them yourself. You do get a page of instructions on how to file them in the courthouse. They also guarantee that the court will accept your documents. {The court will accept a letter from you saying you want a divorce if you file it with the court fees. It does not mean that you are going to get a divorce signed by a Judge) Let me explain what is wrong with this approach to getting a divorce by purchasing a set of documents.

  • 2. You are on your own. In legal language, you are pro se. You are your own attorney and the court expects you to know what to do next. Do not call the computer company, they only promised you papers that the court would accept. They did, job done. No refund. Remember the adage, what can go wrong usually does. It's true. That why I started with the story about the plumber. The toilet did not flush because the pipe going to the sewer under your front lawn was blocked. He knew what to do next. He did not offer to send you a flapper valve and a page of instructions. Same with the other services I mentioned. They are professionals, and licensed to do the work they provide. They also report to a higher authority.

  • 3.  Divorcenters, Inc. is the most expensive document service you will find on the internet. Why, because the individuals that you are dealing with are professionals. Mediators and Attorney's are licensed by the State of Florida. We know what to do next. There are restrictions on each of the services they provide. They follow the rules provided by the Florida Supreme Court.
