I'm sure it's not exactly news to anyone, but divorce is a drag. You're already at some level of emotional overload or like me, in a state of high anxiety combined with a hollow feeling of failure. Although my marriage had been long and emotionally complicated, my ex and I were determined to spend as little money as possible on bringing our partnership to an end. We wanted what monies we had managed to save throughout our marriage to be used for the benefit of our son and ourselves, not to line the pockets of the judicial system.
When I was finally ready to take the leap a quick google search brought NetDivorce near the top of my browser. Under $200 to get a divorce sounded just fine to me so I signed up and have zero regrets. I was very slow to get through the whole process but my slowness had nothing to do with the service and everything to do with my off-the-charts anxiety and irrational fear of making a mistake that would cause problems for me down the road. I asked a million questions and some of them I'm sure were pretty lame, but every response I received was not only very quick in turnaround time but respectful and kind. I tried not to use them as my therapists and stick to the law, but when I did meander off into anxious explanations and the electronic version of nervous chatter, I received nothing but understanding and good humor in return. I'd say the secret to the process lies in carefully reading and following the extremely detailed directions for readying your documents for court. They look like overkill at first but once you start in on the gathering process, it quickly becomes apparent why the directions even include how to set down a piece of paper before moving onto the next. The legal world is not my world so I took it all very seriously.
I will never use NetDivorce again because I don't plan on having another legal wedding in my lifetime but if I did need another divorce they are the first place I would go. I would highly recommend their service to anyone. The website is goofy and kind of homespun with animated faces and directives, but it is clear and easy-to-navigate and I'll tell you, when you're feeling as scared as I did slogging through the many documents modern divorce generates, those goofy cartoon directives brought a smile to my face and reminded me the world wasn't ending, I was just filling out some papers. I don't hesitate to give NetDivorce five stars in every category. Thank you Peter and Ed for your service and your humanity!
