Try contacting the Better Business Bureau (www.bbbonline.org) to find out if the company is legitimate.

If you don't read the newspaper, you are uninformed. If you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed. - Mark Twain

I used the site for a divorce in Texas.  Was pretty simple.  Filled out questionnaire, and they sent the papers I needed to file.  I also did have to pay a $200 filing fee at the County Courthouse (I am sure all other sites are like that too)

( I left this same review on epinions.com

I used divorcewriter.com to prepare my divorce papers in the state of Georgia and I highly recommend it to anyone filing an uncontested (uncomplicated) divorce. I was a little skeptical of using an online divorce site because I wasn’t sure how accurate/difficult/expensive the process would be.  But this company is completely legitimate. 

The entire cost was $149.00.  There were no hidden fees. (Note: It does not include the court fee, which is set by and paid to the court. In my county the court fee is $85.00) Using this company to prepare the forms was *much* cheaper than hiring a lawyer would've been and they guarantee the forms will be accepted by the court or they will refund your money. They are also a member of the Better Business Bureau. 

The program asks step by step questions and then uses your responses to fill in the standardized divorce forms of your county. (It’s similar to using turbo tax to prepare your taxes.) Once you complete the questionnaire, they will mail you all of your necessary paperwork and instructions. You’ll need to find a notary, sign all papers, and file them at the courthouse. Then wait for the judge to approve your divorce papers and set your court date.  From the time I completed the online questionnaire to the day I was officially divorced was a little less than a month.

I will note, however, that my divorce was very straightforward. We have no children and we had already made private agreements between each other concerning our house and debt, so we were able to skip the sections involving child/spousal support and dividing property.

If you and your soon-to-be-ex spouse are on amiable terms and would like to divorce peacefully, without spending thousands of dollars on lawyers, I definitely recommend using divorcewriter.com.  

Divorcewriter.com is associated with the BBBOnline. I used divorcewriter.com for my Virginia divorce. It cost 149$ and then i had an 86$ filing fee. I had an uncontested divorce, no assets, no liabilities, no children. I filed and 3 weeks after i filed, my divorce was finalized. It was pretty easy.

Yes I would highly recommend this service.  my divorce was  in California with two children and uncontested. They give you clear instructions on which forms to file with the court and what forms you need to keep copies of plus their forms are updated so none of my papers were rejected by the court.

Yes, I have paid for the DivorceWriter $149.99 only to find out that all of the paper work that you will need (even the ones that they do not supply) can be found on the website in your county. It will be listed in the "Family Court" section under "Divorce". They make sure there is a guide and a checklist for the type of divorce you need. The instructions are to the letter and you don't end up paying an additional "$149.99" for just paper. The paper they (DW)email you or send you is absolutely "FREE" in your county or state. You do not have to pay for anything until you file the paperwork; and based on what you want or do not want to claim, depends on what you have to pay the court. Also, Divorcewriter gives you no legal advice (they are not licenced to)nor does it file any paperwork for you. I did not find out anything until I went to my recently divorced co-worker. That is when I found out that these services take advantage of anyone who is novice to divorce. When I let them know that I found out and would not be using their paperwork, they offerd to refund me only half ($75.50). So my little mistake cost me $74.50 worth of paper that I can't use.
