The internet plays a substantial role in our lives. Many of us pay our bills online, manage investment accounts, and even pay our rent all with the click of a button. With such a heavy reliance on the world wide web, it seems only natural to consider it a viable option for dissolving your marriage. Unfortunately, divorce is not a one-size-fits-all process and entrusting this process to an online divorce service is a major mistake that can cost you. Continue reading to learn more about why you should not turn to an online divorce service to end your marriage.
The Dangers of Using an Online Divorce Service
No two divorces are exactly alike. What might work for one couple, will not work for another. Online divorce services cannot adequately address the different hurdles each couple faces, especially when the issues are particularly complex. If you own a business or have exceptionally complex assets, an online divorce service might lead you down a disastrous path. Although it is possible to obtain a post-divorce modification for child support, spousal support, and child custody, you generally cannot modify property and asset division. Moreover, even though you can request a modification in some circumstances, they are not easy to obtain. It is far better and cheaper to get it done right the first time.
Additionally, not everyone trusts their spouse. If you believe your soon-to-be ex-spouse is hiding marital assets, an online divorce will not help you uncover this issue. An experienced attorney, on the other hand, will investigate the situation and ensure you receive what is yours.
Lastly, while you might be comfortable with handling your divorce online, it will not stop your spouse from securing skilled legal representation, which will give him or her a major advantage in this process. If you wish to protect your interests and ensure you receive a fair divorce settlement, you will need an attorney on your side to guide you through the complexities you will encounter. It will save you more in the long-run and ensure that you can live with the outcome. Unless you are able to obtain a post-divorce modification, keep in mind that the terms of your divorce decree will likely impact your life for many years to come.
