Online divorce is becoming a more enticing option for couples who’ve come to the end of their marriage and are committed to a civil and amicable divorce. The biggest problem with an online divorce, however, is choosing which service offers the best value and support for the price.
While the competition is fierce among online divorce sites, we’ve worked hard to bring you an objective and detailed perspective over what each site offers and whether it is in keeping with your goals.
Please remember: divorce can be a challenging life event, particularly when one spouse doesn’t want it. And according to recent statistics, around 80 percent of all marriages have one spouse, who would rather stay and work through the marital issues.
If you’re looking at divorce forms completion services, such as MyDivorcePapers.com or iDivorceForms.com, then you SHOULD BE one of the 20 percent. Online divorce works best when both parties agree that the marriage should come to an end. It works best when both parties work with each other to limit tension and frustration for themselves and any children involved.
It behooves both of you to find the common ground needed to go with an online divorce. By keeping attorneys out of it, you can reach an equitable agreement designed on moving both your lives forward instead of holding you back. It won’t take nearly as long, and you’ll walk away in a better financial situation. Plus, by keeping it just between the two of you, you’re less likely to have as many challenges co-parenting.
Bottom line: know what you are getting yourself in to with your divorce, and don’t make the mistake of thinking every case requires the same solution.
We can help you find the online divorce sites best suited to your situation, but you’re the one who knows your situation best. Trust your instincts and make decisions with your head instead of your heart. Good luck!
One of the biggest mistakes that divorcees make when ending their marriages is this: they refuse to accept any of the blame and believe that it was “all their spouse’s fault.” While it very well may be true that one’s spouse did most of the things that led to the divorce, this short-sightedness does more […]
Divorce often brings out the worst in people, and if you want a front row seat to see exactly what that means, then simply become a divorce attorney. They are at the frontline of bitterness and have a ton of stories to share. Recently a few did just that on reddit, and we were stunned. […]
Laura Lifshitz recently took on the theme of grieving your divorce for YourTango, and it’s a sobering reminder of what happens when the finality of calling it quits soaks in. Lifshitz, normally a funny lady, goes a much more poignant path with her reminiscing as she struggles to come to terms with the fact that […]
A second marriage isn’t something that you want to enter into lightly when you’ve lived through the pain of divorce. While you probably already know that, you still may not be asking the right questions of your new spouse-to-be. To avoid any messy “I do” re-dos we suggest sitting down and having a conversation. Then, […]
Divorce may make relationships seem toxic, but the experience can actually be a great learning opportunity that prepares you for the relationship of a lifetime.

It may not seem like it when you’re going through the rough spot, but there really are a lot of positive divorce outcomes if you hang in there and fight for them long enough. Thing is, you may already be experiencing some of these outcomes and not even be aware of them. That’s okay. It […]

In a November 2014 piece from Psychology Today, the experience of “friend divorce” is dealt with in part.

Attorneys may not be the first people you turn to for relationship advice, but you shouldn’t be surprised at just how capable they are of dispensing it.

Michele Weiner-Davis, in her much talked-about examination of infidelity for Huffington Post, has one particular piece of advice that really leapt from the screen for me.
