Assuming that you provide me with properly signed and executed affidavits from you and your spouse, if for any reason your divorce does not go through, I will refund you all of your money, including court costs. This guarantee is only for cases with no kids, and also assumes grounds of irreconcileable differences (now by far the most popular grounds). This guarantee is obviously only for uncontested cases, which means that your spouse signs the papers and does not change his or her mind and appear, write the court, or otherwise contest the case. I know of no other oklahoma divorce lawyer who offers a similar guarantee.
I answer this phone in the evening, on the weekend, on holidays, in fact any time day or night. During the hours of 9-5 on weekdays I am often in court, but I will always pick up my phone if I am able to, and if you leave a message I will call you back later the same day.
I see lots of people filing, or at least trying to file, their own uncontested divorce papers. And make no mistake, you can do your own uncontested divorce, at least if you have no kids, no property (including pensions), and no joint credit card or other debt. But it might take a lot longer and you might have to take off time from work to come to back to court several times. And be frustrated.
Special software makes the difference
If you are retired, or perhaps working part time and have nothing else to do, and you don’t mind coming to court and doing things over again and again, you don’t need any special software. The court will provide you with all of the forms you need. But the software makes it so much easier, and it automatically ensures that all the dates of birth, social security numbers, addresses, and all other information is correctly and accurately copied into each required document. The software that I use, and most attorneys that I know use, is called Drafting Libraries. It is updated online to reflects all recent changes (and these are frequent) in the law. It works very much like the Turbotax program you might be familiar with (software program that allows you to do your own income tax returns), in that it asks you a series of fairly simple questions. But the software costs $300. I am not sure if it makes sense to buy a program that you are only going to use one time, when you can hire an experienced lawyer to prepare all of the papers, go to court, and do everything else that has to be done for only a little more money. My own fees start at only $499 (plus court costs which you will have to pay anyway). But if you are bound and determined to do it yourself, do yourself a favor, and at least use the software.
