Online Divorce- Helpful InformationMonday, August 25th, 2014, 7:02 pm
Attention couples seeking divorce in the Queens and greater New York City area: read this if you're considering using one of the many programs available to obtain a divorce online. It may seem like you're saving money without the hassle of retaining a Queens divorce attorney, but what you may think it convenient could end up causing more turmoil, result in unanticipated legal issues and therefore even more money out of your pocket if you're not careful.
Simply put, online divorce doesn't cover all the bases we can provide you here at the Queens office of FK Law Group. Although it may be easier to pay your bills or do your grocery shopping online, divorce is not a "one-size-fits-all" process, and only an attorney can provide you with the individualized attention you need while taking steps to end your marriage.
Divorce procedure varies greatly from couple to couple, depending on an assortment of serious factors, such as assets, children, and the current nature of your relationship with your soon-to-be ex-spouse.
It's not surprising that an increasing number of New York couples seeking divorce are opting for or at least considering online divorce, but don't let those online divorce programs make you blind to the substantial benefits a qualified divorce attorney can provide. Only a divorce lawyer fluent in the nuances of divorce in the state, and familiar with your family's particular situation, can appropriately address the needs of your family during the difficult process. Programs don't have the legal knowledge to adequately assist you with the complicated issues many couples face throughout the divorce process.
NY Courts Suggest Retaining a Qualified Divorce Attorney
It's possible to obtain divorce forms through the New York Courts website, but they provide information with a disclaimer of sorts. Their statement says it best. Here's the note provided on the site:
"The New York State Unified Court System offers free instruction booklets and forms for people starting a divorce.
Before you use the booklets and forms, we strongly suggest that you give serious thought to using a lawyer for your divorce, even if you believe that your divorce will be “uncontested” (i.e., your spouse will not oppose the divorce in any way). There can be a lot more to think about than just ending the marriage and filling out court papers. (For example, there may be property to divide between you and your spouse, or you may need an Order of Protection and/or child support and other financial support, among other things.)"
