Online Divorce = Risky Business
Sometimes people call me who have used a website to generate their divorce “paperwork.” In other words, they used some website to generate a bunch of stuff of unknown quality, and they want someone who knows what they are doing to check it out.
Believe me when I tell you that I have no once reviewed Website-generated divorce paperwork that was decent quality. I have seen forms I didn’t recognize, have NOT see terms and clauses that should have been present, and have seen paperwork that contains so much personal identity information that a kindergarten student could steal that person’s identity.
Let me make this clear: DO NOT USE A WEBSITE TO PRODUCE DIVORCE PAPERWORK. If you do, you are begging for trouble.
