POWER OF ATTORNEY
Get an Inexpensive Divorce without a Lawyer
Divorce filing can be an emotionally and financially draining experience, and disentangling the life you built with your former spouse is never easy. In addition to all the issues involved in dividing your property, you may also need to worry about childcare, living arrangements, and the difficulties of starting over.
If you are getting a divorce, you owe it to yourself to make the process as simple and painless as you can. The many legal issues that surround divorce can feel overwhelming, and the perception that every divorce is a legal nightmare hasn’t been helped by its dramatic portrayal on television and in the media. Expensive divorce lawyers are counting on this assumption and want you to believe that no couple can handle the process on their own.
An Uncontested Divorce Is Easier and More Cost-Effective
But there is a simpler, less-complicated, and cost-effective way to handle your divorce without a lawyer. If you and your spouse are on friendly terms, or can at least negotiate how to split up your property and handle issues related to your children, then you can pursue an “uncontested divorce.”
Uncontested divorce agreements are the least expensive way to dissolve your marriage and avoid the huge costs of hiring lawyers. This can enable you to quickly get back on your feet and to put that money towards your new life. Uncontested divorces are also more private, lowering your stress levels and helping both of you move on.

We are truly the best option when it comes to divorces:
- We often come across people who have tried to do it themselves: they prepare the initial petition, fill out everything the clerk hands them and have the false satisfaction of feeling like they are accomplishing something. That only last until it’s time to file the final paperwork: that’s where 99% of people get stuck. And rejection after rejection, they get more and more frustrated with the process, and finally hire us to finish what was started sometimes years before.
- Same goes for people who use online-only services. The only difference is that they pay hundreds of dollars to have software fill out the forms. The result is the same: they also hit the wall of the finals.
- Let us assist you in your uncontested divorce case. We have handled literally THOUSANDS of cases this past year — we clearly know how to prepare the paperwork and word the settlement agreement between the spouses in a way that will be approved by the court. And you’ll agree that our fees are extremely competitive.
The 6 months and 1 day
Some of our customers are genuinely surprised that it takes that long in California to be divorced. It doesn’t matter whether you are in agreement, have no minor children, nor assets. It’s still 6 months and one day from the day the respondent is served.
In the good old days (pre-pandemic), we used to be able to get the final judgment back from the court in 2-3 months, and we were typically able to “beat” the deadline of the 6 months — our customers even if not legally divorced just yet, knew that the paperwork had been processed and approved already.
Because of the increased time it takes the court to review cases, even if we file the final paperwork packet (”the finals”) as soon as possible, we can no longer guarantee that you’ll be divorced right when the 6 months and 1 day have passed.
