People seeking divorce in Pennsylvania often look for the fastest and cheapest way to complete the process. Unfortunately, several websites online swindle countless innocent people by offering “online divorces” or supposedly free forms.
Oftentimes, people are understandably angry and embarrassed when they typically pay a couple hundred dollars (sometimes several hundreds of dollars) for forms that are blank and could have been acquired online for free. You should avoid paying any company that offers to complete your divorce online for a significantly reduced cost, as state law prohibits any party that is not an attorney from filling out legal forms and filing them with a court.
If you are seeking a divorce in Pennsylvania, you should contact an experienced attorney to ensure that your forms are correctly completed and filed. Ciccarelli Law Offices understands the financial constraints that many people face in divorce, and we strive to provide such legal services at reasonable fees.
Our firm represents clients all over Chester County as well as areas of Lancaster County, Delaware County, Montgomery County, and the Philadelphia area. We invite you to call (877) 529-2422 so you can schedule a free legal consultation that will allow us to discuss your case.
You should never pay any company that offers to complete your divorce forms for you. Many companies utilize generic forms when Pennsylvania has very specific requirements. If you want to ensure that your own divorce forms are handled properly, you should seek the help of a capable Pennsylvania divorce lawyer.
Some divorce forms are available for free online at various county websites, including:
Chester County — This website contains an instructional checklist for No Fault Divorce under § 3301 (c) of the Divorce Code as well as such Chester County divorce forms as Chester County Civil Cover Sheets, Divorce Complaints, and Affidavits of Consent.313 West Market Street

Whether you are seeking a no-fault divorce or a fault-based divorce, do not pay to have your paperwork completed by a company without legal consultation. Whatever amount of money people think they are saving by completing their divorce forms on their own, some of the terms they may inadvertently agree to can cost them substantially more later on,
