The Danger of DIY Divorce

On Behalf of | Aug 6, 2018 | Categories: Divorce, Family Law, Firm News |

Cheap online “do it yourself” divorce kits seem like a good idea, particularly if you and your spouse are in agreement.  However, there are inherent hazards and dangers associated with the kits.  Thompson Law Office can quickly help with an uncontested divorce or even if it is contested.

Online “fill in the blank” divorce kits that you can purchase are rarely accepted by the Court in Central Kentucky.  The judge fortunately wants to know that all of the laws and rules are met prior to granting a divorce.  However, just because the do-it-yourself kits often do not work, it does not mean that a couple cannot obtain a quick and easy divorce.

In today’s culture, the word “divorce” often brings up mental images of long, drawn-out court battles and exorbitant legal fees.  However, every divorce is as unique as the clients themselves.  Thompson Law Office is experienced in handling all types of divorces.

Many times, the divorcing couple has already agreed to how they wish to divide the marital estate and simply need the paperwork to make it legal.  This is referred to as an “uncontested divorce”.  On the other end of the spectrum is the “contested divorce”, where ownership and/or control of anything and everything is up for debate.  Regardless of how simple or complex your divorce is and where it ends up falling on that spectrum, Thompson Law Office is here to help guide you through it.
