Should I use an app to complete my divorce?

If you have minimal assets and no children, your first thought may be to file for divorce and go through the whole process without representation. Some of our readers may feel this plan will save them a lot of money and get the process done quickly.

While it may initially save them some money, in many cases, it can come back to haunt them later. There are many apps and programs out there that claim you can go through the divorce process by yourself. While you definitely can, it does not mean that you will get results that will have a positive impact on your future. Not only that, but you may also forget to file some sort of paperwork, which can often frustrate a judge who already has a packed family court schedule.

Even when there are no children involved, couples may have more assets than they initially assumed. They may have to take into account things like real estate, student loans, retirement accounts, taxes, credit cards and investments. If these are not properly discussed and taken into account, one individual may be left dealing with all the debt or may lose assets that could be very beneficial to their future.

Even if you think your case is super simple, it does not hurt to reach out to a divorce attorney and discuss your case. The attorney may be able to bring things to light that you never thought about and that may be very important to your case.
