Divorce is painful enough, without having the insult of high lawyers’ fees added to your emotional injury. If both husband and wife are willing to work together, agree on the disposition of assets and sign all documents in order to obtain the divorce, then should be your low cost alternative to costly lawyers.

What Is Divorce ?
The legal process with which to end a legal marriage.


Unlike the bitter battles portrayed on the television, 75% of all divorces are actually Uncontested and No Fault, and end within the first 5 years of marriage. This means that you and your spouse are parting amicably (at least in legal terms) and have come to an acceptable arrangement on how to divide assets and responsibilities.

Uncontested, No Fault divorce is an action completed through forms, and there is generally no court appearance in most states.

What Happens To The Children, Support, Health Insurance, House, Furniture, Bank Accounts, Debts, And Retirement Benefits ?
If you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement on the disposition of assets or other issues, then it is not an Uncontested divorce. You should consult a lawyer (You can see our Lawyer Referral Page.)

However, in an Uncontested divorce, you and your spouse have already determined how to handle and dissolve all the issues common during married life. We will get this detailed information from you in order to complete the appropriate state forms on your behalf.

How Long Does It Take Until We Are Divorced ?
That depends on which state you live in.

For Example (from the time you file your papers with the state until divorce is granted)

New York 4 to 6 months
Wisconsin 120 day waiting period (6 months)
Pennsylvania 4 to 5 months
California 6 months
Texas 60 days
