COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS TO OUR PARALEGAL:
  • HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO FINISH MY DIVORCE? it takes 6 months in the State of California to obtain a divorce
  • CAN BOTH PARTIES ATTEND THE PARALEGAL MEETING AND BE INVOLVED TOGETHER?  Yes.  So long as both parties can work together.  We are not mediators or therapists; we simply are drafting the required documents as directed by the client. 
  • WHAT IF WE START THE PROCESS AND MY SPOUSE WON’T COOPERATIVE ANY MORE? HOW DO I FINISH MY DIVORCE? Our Paralegals draft initial divorce documents in a legally precise way, that most, can finish up their divorce by “Default”; or they hire an attorney if needed

  • WHAT IF I CAN’T PAY MY COURT FILING FEE?  You can request a fee waiver from the courts.  These are additional documents filled out by you and filed with your initial divorce documents.  The court may waive fees; may issue a hearing date for you to appear regarding your income; or ask you at a later date to pay your filing fee.
  • ARE THERE ANY FEES THAT ARE NOT INCLUDED IN MY DIVORCE?  Yes, we do not cover any process server fees; additional filing fees that the court may request; or additional legal matters that arise from the opposing party contesting the divorce
