We complete many important tasks online. Many of us pay our bills, file our taxes, and manage our investments online, so it seems only natural to consider using an online divorce service to dissolve your marriage. However, divorce is not as simple as paying your bills and no two cases are exactly alike, so it is crucial to hire a knowledgeable attorney to handle your case instead of a one-size-fits-all online divorce service.
Why You Should Not Rely on an Online Divorce Service
Online divorce services are not designed to cater to the individual needs of every client. If you have complex assets, a multifaceted prenuptial agreement, or you believe your spouse is hiding assets, these are issues that cannot be addressed through the cookie-cutter forms provided by an online divorce service. An attorney, on the other hand, can provide personalized attention and advice that an online divorce service cannot match and, if necessary, discover any hidden assets.
Additionally, it is important to keep in mind that the internet is not always reliable. Your divorce forms will contain a lot of sensitive, personal information, including your social security number, addresses, assets, credit card information, and more. The last thing you want is for this information to fall into the wrong hands, putting you at risk for identity theft.
Although an online divorce service seems like a more cost-effective option for putting an end to your marriage, the mistakes you may make as a result of choosing this option may ultimately end up costing you more in the long run, both financially and emotionally. Considering the profound impact the outcome of your case can have on your future, it is crucial to hire an experienced attorney to represent your interests and advise you throughout the process.
