Several states operate their own form of divorce services to aid individuals representing themselves in a divorce case. Often, this type of divorce service comes in the form of a booklet with suggestions and advice to consider when facing the entire divorce proceedings. In addition, some localities will provide a step by step booklet to complete the petition to divorce. These booklets will generally be quite immense and tough to get through regardless of the assistance it provides.
Many other types of divorce services are also available online. They will often combine legal kits with some type of direct service. For example, some allow an individual to enter some general information and the software will then fill in the appropriate questions with the respective answer. Others websites state that they provide on call legal assistance, through a telephone line or email, but this again should be checked for some type of accreditation.
Nobody should approach a trial without consideration of some type of divorce service. If financial considerations are not a worry, the best bet is usually hiring an attorney. As a gauge, generally those court cases that contain the least possession disputes or custody debates, require the least legal work. Often, these types of cases can be handled individually with the assistance of one of the aforementioned divorce services.
