A divorce attorney serves the process of divorce. There are different ways in which one can obtain a legal divorce. Some firms offer an online divorce package. An online divorce is much like the DIY divorce. The package includes all the legal documentation required to successfully proceed with a divorce action, as well as guided instructions as to how the process works. In some cases, a divorce attorney or firm will offer additional services such as a consultation or his assistance where it is needed. It should be noted that DIY and online divorces are only possible in instances of uncontested divorce. Where divorce is contested a DIY or online divorce cannot be an option. The process of contested divorce is far more complex and goes into depth in all areas of the divorce. Where uncontested divorce is more an official process to obtain the legal separation of a broken down marriage.
