It’s not surprising that the presence of online divorce companies is increasing. The rising cost of legal fees is hard for the average family to afford and non-attorney companies are jumping at the opportunity to reel in clients.
Websites are springing up every day claiming to provide the cheapest and fastest divorce in Louisiana. However, they are not actually located in your state, but instead are online and their home base is in another state.
Online divorce companies cannot practice law
If there is a problem with the forms they provide, who will fix them and direct you on the proper path? Some online divorce companies offer to fix any mistakes for a fee and allow you to resubmit your information.
However, what if it’s a big problem that requires legal advice from a licensed attorney? They can’t advise you. They can only give you the forms to file based on the information you provided them.
What happens if you don’t know what information to provide and it causes issues with your case?
That’s not service.
Each state has its own laws on divorce and Louisiana is no exception. In fact, Louisiana divorce law is different than any other state in the U.S. You have to follow the law exactly or you risk some serious consequences and may have to file your petitions all over again. We have separation requirements that must be fulfilled or you cannot obtain a Judgment of Divorce.
In some cases, people believe their divorce to be final, but later discover it is not. They try to get married to a new partner, only to discover that the law prevents them.
Now, they have to file another Petition for Divorce, re-serve their ex and wait for a judgment. That can get expensive. Plus, there are more filing fees.
It’s best to do your divorce right the first time.
What we offer
Our firm offers flat rate pricing for uncontested Louisiana divorces across the state. Flat rate fees are more efficient for clients. With flat rate pricing, it doesn’t matter how long it takes our law firm to prepare your divorce, you only pay the flat fee. You save money in the long run.
This is vastly different from other firms that charge by the hour. Let’s say for example, Law Firm B charges $200 an hour to process your divorce. We all know divorces can sometimes take a great deal of time and you may end up paying thousands for an uncontested divorce. At the Andries Law Firm, we believe filing for divorce shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg.
What makes us different from online divorce companies?
We offer low, flat rate pricing, but we do something more – we can give you legal advice. They can’t. We go beyond just preparing the appropriate documents to file your divorce. We’re with you every step of the way and can advise you on the process, versus merely entering your information into a form and giving it to you to file yourself.
We answer your calls, emails and will meet with you in person if you need.
If there’s ever an issue with a Petition for Divorce that we file, we have the capabilities to fix it. Have questions about other aspects of law – we can answer it or direct you to an attorney that specializes in that area of law. Online divorce companies in Louisiana cannot give you any legal advice. Most won’t even talk to you. You send them money and they send you a petition.
You deserve more.
If you prefer dealing with your divorce online – we can help you in whatever way is easier for you. We are able to communicate about your divorce through phone and email to process everything for you.
You don’t have to live near our law firm in Alexandria, Louisiana to utilize our services. We handle divorce matters all over the state.
