Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Divorce

Coaching, Consulting, Document Preparation and Filing

If you are facing an uncontested divorce (there are no disagreements between you and your spouse or partner about division of assets, property or child/spousal support), you may choose to prepare and file all of the necessary documents yourself to obtain a legal divorce in the state of California.

If you are planning to prepare and file your divorce documents yourself, and you would like to make sure that they are properly filled out and ready to file, Divorce Helpline attorneys can review them and make any recommendations to keep them from being rejected by the court. For a fee, we are also available to answer questions and give you legal and practical advice in person or over the phone to support you in the DIY divorce process.

Once a petition is filed with the court, your Judgment of Dissolution will be granted either by default or by a settlement agreement filed with the court. You can learn more about these types of uncontested divorce by reading our FAQs. You can still file your documents yourself in a contested divorce, but in that case, you must have a settlement agreement or the court will decide any unresolved issues.

Divorce Helpline can offer you the greatest level of privacy and expediency in a divorce proceeding through our Private Judge service. If you have questions or you are frustrated with the litigation process, contact us today at 1-800-359-7004 to find out how we can help..

Call us at 800-359-7004 and speak with one of our friendly staff who can help you figure out your next steps.

I would like to let you know how much your firm helped with my divorce last year. Allison and the entire staff made what was the most difficult time in our lives so much easier. My ex-husband and I are able to be friends and now with a grandchild on the way, I can’t begin to tell you how nice that is. Again, I can’t thank you enough for all that Divorce Helpline did for me. I look forward to hearing from you.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your legal advice. You helped in not only clarifying some legal issues, but also explained how to communicate with my ex-husband in such a manner as to keep him from shutting down or getting defensive.
We were on the “fast track” and boy was it fast. Worth every penny! Start to finish (Judgment) was about eight weeks! Everybody on your staff was delightful! RESTORED MY FAITH IN LAWYERS.
I ended up with full physical custody, and girlfriend is not allowed access to my son in any way. I really have you to thank for this. I gave your ideas to my lawyer. I’m still a bit shocked that it worked out so well.
