Can You Handle Your Own Divorce?

The Trials and Tribulations of the Internet

The Internet has become a great place for people to quickly and easily accomplish tasks that are more time-consuming and more expensive to resolve offline. Shopping for clothes, paying bills and making dinner reservations can all be done at the click of a button, and many websites are beginning to expand on this idea of convenience and cost effectiveness by offering legal forms and services online, including Internet divorce.

There are hundreds of websites offering cheap forms and easy 'divorce packages' that can help couples resolve their divorce on their own without the need to hire a lawyer. While this might sound ideal for couples who are looking for a convenient solution to their marriage dissolution, an Internet divorce has severe limitations on the amount of security and reliability that you will receive and can have lasting consequences if aspects of your Internet divorce are done incorrectly. Unless your marriage has been for a very short duration, you have no children together, and you have acquired no assets or debt of a substantial value you should not try to handle your own divorce. There are just too many issues of which you won’t be aware that can come back to haunt you later on.

At the law firm of Iwanyshyn & Associates, located in Allison Park, North Hills and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, we have the experience and legal knowledge to make sure that your divorce is handled correctly.

While an Internet divorce might appear to save you money initially, correcting the problems that result from not protecting your economic interests might be impossible after the fact. If you own any assets or are jointly liable for any debt, or have guaranteed any debt of your spouse, you probably cannot process your divorce using forms without the legal guidance of an experienced attorney. Internet divorce companies may advertise their services as hassle-free, but it is a much greater task to have issues related to the economic issues of your divorce arise weeks, months or years after you thought your divorce was completed.

Instead of quick fixes that may leave you vulnerable from a legal standpoint, attorney Deborah Luteran Iwanyshyn offers professional care and reliable legal advice. She is here to answer your questions at anytime and can handle your continuing legal needs if any problems arise in the future.

As a Certified Public Accountant (CPA, license inactive), a former Senior Member of the American Society of Appraisers specializing in business valuation, and a former court-appointed custody mediator through Allegheny County, Ms. Iwanyshyn has a strong and dependable background that will help you make solid decisions concerning the issues that arise in your divorce.

While the Internet is a fantastic tool for making life simpler and easier, there are still some areas where a personal touch and professional service and knowledge can make a difference. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our firm. Call us at 412-848-9181 or 412-848-9181.
