Do I Need An Attorney If We Agree On The Terms of Our Divorce in California?

If you have made the decision to get a divorce in California, you are clearly capable of doing what is right for you. If you and your soon to be ex-spouse have also agreed on how property, assets, debts, and custody (if applicable) will be handled, you are also in a far better position than many people who choose to divorce. That is great news.

Once you and your former spouse have reached an agreement on all of these things, the next step is to deal with the legalities of getting a divorce. Do you need an attorney to help you do this? The simple answer is no. You can file a divorce petition on your own in Los Angeles or Ventura County. You can also use websites and online legal document companies to find all the necessary forms.

While most people believe do-it-yourself forms and services are the best and most efficient options when trying to keep costs down, you should be aware that there will be additional fees of $435 per spouse which will not be included in the costs of legal documents purchased online. You will also be responsible for reading all of the information contained within the documents, supplying all required documentation, and making sure that all information is filled out correctly, or else you risk delays and setbacks in navigating through and completing the divorce process in Southern California.

On the other hand, if you have agreed to all terms of the divorce, you do not need to spend tens of thousands of dollars (or more) on attorney's fees. That is precisely why our founding attorneys, Jamie Kurtz and Courtney Glickman launched Los Angeles, California based, Simply Divorced. They each spent many thousands of dollars in attorney's fees during their own divorces, which was frankly unnecessary.

In order to save others from having to spend thousands and thousands of dollars to complete their uncontested divorces, these two talented and experienced divorce attorneys launched Simply Divorced. For a one-time flat fee, our attorneys encourage you to save your money for your future, rather than throwing it away on divorce attorney fees. Simply Divorced attorneys eliminate the stress and the confusion of handling your divorce, all the while providing personal support and advice to help you progress through your uncontested divorce in Southern California.

Our $3,500 flat fee includes concierge-style service throughout the entire divorce process (which in Southern California will take a minimum of 6 months). Your divorce will be handled by our experienced divorce attorneys, and you will never have to worry about receiving an outrageous invoice for hourly billables.

At Simply Divorced, we help you get divorced simply and inexpensively, without taking on the aggravation of handling the paperwork and legal requirements on your own. We are happy to answer any questions you have about our services. Please contact us today, and we'll help you to begin the process.
