Divorce / Legal Separation

How does this work?

You fill out our simple divorce questionnaire (see below) to provide us the information we need to prepare your documents.  Once we receive the completed questionnaire and payment, we will have your documents ready for your review in 7 - 10 days (often sooner).

What is E-filing?

People Paralegal is subscribed with Odyssey File and Serve enabling us to electronically file your divorce papers for you once you are 100% satisfied with them.  You may never even need to go to the courthouse!

We save you money

 We understand the strain a divorce may have on your pocketbook, and that is why we offer affordable, flat-rate document preparation services.  No hidden fees.  

Let us simplify

Preparing for a divorce or legal separation can be emotional, which makes it even more difficult to muddle through stacks of forms you may receive from the courthouse.  We strive to make this process as smooth and easy as possible for you.

What do you mean by contested divorce?

A divorce may be considered contested if the parties cannot agree on the division of assets, debt and child custody, parenting time and child support.  One party files with the court and requires the other party to be served and file an answer/response to the court.

What do you mean by uncontested divorce?

A divorce is Uncontested if both parties agree to the terms of division of assets, debts, and child custody, parenting time, and child support.  Both parties agree and sign the documents as one filing.  This saves money and time. 

A divorce or legal separation can be very emotionally draining and difficult on all parties, even when they are in agreement.   The legal process of divorce may also involve issues of spousal support, child custody, child support, distribution of property and division of debt.  We can efficiently prepare documents  to express your wishes for all those issues.
