You have tried to save your marriage. You have prayed for your relationship to be restored. Maybe you have tried counseling or even a mediated separation but you still find yourself filing for divorce and facing the end of your marriage.
The idea of handing over thousands of dollars for legal fees is like one more nail in the coffin. Attorneys are expensive and often make matters worse, all the while charging you hundreds of dollars an hour.
In California, it is not necessary to use an attorney for a divorce. This is especially true if you and your spouse believe there is a chance of working together to reach a fair settlement.
The paperwork required by the State of California for a Divorce or Legal Separation is overwhelming for almost everybody. It is time consuming, complicated and held to rigid standards by the Courts. We complete all the necessary paperwork and file everything in the appropriate county courthouse. You never have to worry if you have filled out the forms correctly or if you even have all the forms required for your process. We take care of everything and explain it along the way.

The majority of attorneys charge to work on your case on an hourly basis, with the average hourly rate being between $200 and $400. Attorneys with expertise in specialized areas (such as family law) may charge much more. In addition, you can expect that the attorney will also charge you at an hourly rate for paralegals and other support staff. The paralegal's time, for example, may be billed out at $100 to a $150 an hour, or perhaps more.
Our fees are based per document; not per an hourly basis as divorce attorneys charge. There are no hidden fees. Any and all personal information you provide Divorce Document Assistance with, will always remain completely confidential. We provide great customer service with 100% satisfaction.
