I've seen others offer divorces for cheaper, why should I choose ezDivorce?


Good question, we've also seen others offer divorces at hard-to-believe prices, so what's the deal? Well, what they're not telling you, is that while they may offer 'instant documents' at cheap prices - the documents are either filled in by computer or arrive incomplete. This means you need to do a whole lot of work figuring out what to do and where to do it. It also means that poorly-prepared or incorrect documents may be rejected by the court. ezDivorce, on the other hand, is not an automated or do-it-yourself website spitting out loads of documents. Our experienced specialists diligently prepare and deliver fully-completed court-ready divorce documents. You and your spouse simply sign & file using our easy-to-follow directions.

These matters may include the division of marital property & debts (if applicable), and custody, visitation, & support of any minor children of the marriage (if applicable).

What is a Settlement Agreement?


A marital Settlement Agreement (also known as a Stipulation of Settlement) is a legally binding contract incorporated in a divorce proceeding that addresses key issues related to your family, finances, and responsibilities. A Settlement Agreement typically spells out specific terms regarding property and asset distributions, child custody, child visitation, division of debts, spousal support, and any other relevant issues related to a divorce. Having a Settlement Agreement as part of your divorce ensures that there are no uncertainties or misunderstandings regarding you and your spouse’s obligations. Once signed by both parties, this agreement also serves as evidence of the terms you have both consented to and can be enforced by the court. As part of your divorce documents, our ezDivorce paralegals provide you with a comprehensive marital Settlement Agreement outlining the terms of your divorce and any obligations that may continue post-divorce.




We already have a previously prepared Separation Agreement, Stipulation of Settlement, and/or Prenuptial Agreement. Can it be incorporated into our divorce?


Certainly. Once you get started with our services, our easy online questionnaire will guide you through the process and ask if you have any previously prepared agreements.

Prior to a judge granting custody or visitation as part of a divorce proceeding, the court will often conduct a registry search. This is done in order to ensure that the parties seeking custody or visitation do not have a history of domestic violence, abuse, neglect or sexual misconduct which may impede their custody or visitation rights.
