Why You Should Get A Divorce Kit

Jan 2, 2008
Divorce is always a difficult experience whether for the husband or the wife. The process not only involve a lot of emotional and legal issues, it also involves a lot of expenses. The expenses begin when you first ask your lawyer to explain things to you and to fill up your forms. Fortunately, you can easily cut your costs these days with a handy and reliable divorce kit. What is this and what can you find in a kit?

What You Can Get From a Kit

A kit for divorce is usually a thorough do-it-yourself package with organized instructions on what you need to do and forms that you need to fill up. Kits may also include reminders of rules that you need to be aware of and tips on how to conduct yourself in court.

Before getting a divorce lawyer, kits are usually useful to help you save on preliminary expenses. Some kits however can be used under certain circumstances to help you represent yourself in court. Quite a number of people have already had successful divorces in this manner. Good kits can therefore save you from legal expenses. Some kits can sell for as low as $30 dollars. That is still considered cheap compared to lawyer fees that can reach a couple of hundred dollars.

Kits for divorce are usually ordered from online divorce sources. Some kits can actually be delivered right at your doorstep. There are however, more convenient versions that can be downloaded online. You then simply have to fill up the forms with your computer and have them printed. A divorce kit doesn't just save you money. It also saves you a lot of time.

What You Need to Remember

Because of the convenience that it offers, a divorce kit may seem like the perfect alternative. Not all kits however can solve every single legal divorce problem. Here are some things that you should know about kits and their uses:

- You may need a lawyer to handle everything. This is especially true if you have a complicated situation or case. You and your spouse for example may have a lot of debts to settle between the two of you or you may not agree with the demands of your spouse as to property settlement or child custody and support.

- There are different laws on divorce, depending on the state you are in. You need to be certain that your kit is applicable for the state you are in. Moreover, your kit should be updated and have steps and forms that are in current use.

- Divorce kits are only good for uncontested divorce. If you need to serve divorce to your spouse, you need a different kind of kit.

- Some kits may be incomplete. If you buy a kit without checking it first, you could later learn when you submit your documents that you are still missing a few pages. The best way to get a complete and reliable divorce kit is to buy one that has been put together by people with real legal experience.
