This is the only testimonial on our site not certified by Business Consumer Alliance, Yelp or Google. It’s basically just an email from our client, Darrell, after he had received our first batch proofreading email.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT NETDIVORCE
This was an excellent experience. They are very thorough and detailed. If you follow the detailed instructions to a tee, you should have no issues. Whenever I had questions, they responded very quickly, even before I paid for the service as I had some questions beforehand. Accurate support and they go above and beyond to help you thru the process. I cant say enough about how good this service is. The website is very easy to navigate also. A+++ - Mathias D.
ED WEST IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. HE HAS HELPED ME EVERY STEP OF THE WAY WITH MY DIVORCE PROCESS. I HAVE SAVED OVER A THOUSAND DOLLARS BY USING NET DIVORCE. EVERY STEP OF THE WAY I FELT LIKE I HAD A TOP LAW FIRM HELPING ME EVEN THOUGH MY DIVORCE WASN'T THAT BIG OF A DEAL!!! THANK YOU NET DIVORCE AND ED WEST FOR YOUR HELP. I CANNOT THANK YOU ALL ENOUGH. I WOULD DEFINITELY PROMOTE ED WEST FOR HIS PROFESSIONALISM, CONSISTENCY & CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS. - Ephraim Manasseh
The service could not have been any better.
NetDivorce is one of the lowest cost "form filling" services on the web for California Divorce, which is what I needed. So I did not have high hopes for outstanding service. Usually when I pick low cost services I expect worse service. It makes sense.
Well I was quite Naive. Despite the fact that millions of people have done it, Divorce in California is not a cookie cutter thing. When I submitted my first batch for printing, I was surprised that NetDivorce assigned a Human Being to review it and make sure that you did not go outside the boundaries of the program and need to fill out a few more forms. This turned out to be crucial for me in Batch 3 because I have been married for many years and extra forms are necessary for this.
I was also given really good advice that saved me and my ex more money than the program cost. You see we were both in agreement that the divorce should happen with no trouble on either side. And Net Divorce used this knowledge to steer me in the direction of the lowest cost divorce possible.
I found the instructions from the program easy to follow and also the emails that were sent to me.
The counselor that had been assigned to my account seemed to be online constantly. On Saturday he checked the online case for my particular county and found out that the Judgement had been made and the divorce was final. No rejection of any part of the divorce.
The service could not have been any better. If you are looking to minimize expense in an amicable divorce, this service is absolutely the one you should choose. - Keith H.
I even received email replies from them on a weekend.
They helped me create and file the documents for an uncontested divorce. Everyone that I dealt with was very helpful. They answered my questions very promptly. I even received email replies from them on a weekend. If you are willing to do the work required to file your own divorce then you should use their services. They really do help you through each step with a lot of detail. - Shane B
This is a mysterious process that NetDivorce made understandable. NetDivorce just made process really easy, so I knew what to expect and where I was. Ed West was my contact and he always got back to me and answered my email in a timely manner.
They were awesome and they exceeded my expectations! All I needed to do was follow the directions. They take you step by step through this mysterious process and make it understandable. I could email them at anytime. NetDivorce just made process really easy, so I knew what to expect and where I was. They gave me timeframes for how long things normally take to have a clear idea where they things were. Ed West was my contact and he always got back to me and answered my email in a timely manner. He never treated me as if I was asking a dumb question. You want to have somebody tell you what is going on and he was great! I looked online and read all the reviews. All of the feedback really impressed me and they were so inexpensive. I recommended them to a friend and told them I used their service and it was awesome. - Scott H.
I give NetDivorce an A plus for their services and assistance in doing a web based gathering of the Divorce Package for CA
I selected NetDivorce from a number of different web package options, and never had any regret during the whole process. The guidance for the information gathering and printing / filing the different batches of forms was superb. Even when I ran into some minor issues as some of the judge had her own personal interpretation of things, they quickly made the requested additional form available and instructions on what to fill out .The website and the questionnaires were easy to follow, the weekly status update provided my latest progress, so overall very happy with he choice of this divorce solution and also a happy ending to a signed off judgment for my marriage dissolution. - Rudy D.
Their price is more than reasonable and Ed takes great care of his customers.
NetDivorce walked me through the paperwork and filing processes for my divorce from beginning to end. My expectations were exceeded, by far. There were a few complications in my case and Ed West patiently walked me through getting things straightened out. Ed always responded promptly to my questions and his instructions are extremely helpful. I saw others complain about the detail of his instructions in their reviews but I found appreciated his thoroughness. I would definitely recommend NetDivorce to others. Their price is more than reasonable and Ed takes great care of his customers. - Ann C.
They were able to complete the paperwork in a timely fashion, even through this pandemic.
NetDivorce provided assistance to clear up the documentation for divorce process. Every time I had a question, they were responsive and responsive in a short period of time. They were very detailed on explaining everything to me and helping me understand. They were patient and responsive to me over the weekend, which was very surprising to me. Their professionalism, patience and knowledge helped me submit the proper paperwork to the courts in a timely fashion. They provide very valuable services for a reasonable price. They were able to complete the paperwork in a timely fashion, even through this pandemic. I already recommended them and will definitely continue to do so. I would be happy to do that because I feel they helped me a lot. - Michael P.
Similar to many of the other reviewers I was skeptical at first. Not only because there were more well known companies out there but because Net Divorce pricing was almost too good to be true. But I went ahead and tried them based on some of the reviews and I absolutely couldn’t be happier. They were very helpful and very responsive to all of my questions and replied back immediately. They were knowledgeable and provided the best customer service. I wasn’t sure if I would get specialized help but I was assigned a case worker and he was very helpful and responded almost immediately to my issues. I am now officially divorced and although there was a lot of paperwork I have Net Divorce to thank for getting me through it. Go with them. They are legit. - Anita Y.
I was so impressed with their customer service -- after each download of documents, I feel so lucky to have located their services and am so grateful for all of their help. Ed contacted me within an hour to ask if I had any questions. He replied to all of my inquiries promptly and with useful information.
NetDivorce provided me assistance with filing for divorce from my husband. I had looked at other online companies, as well as consulted a local legal firm, but after seeing the many excellent reviews of NetDivorce, decided to pursue services with them. Filing for divorce is extremely emotionally draining, before you even consider the administrative burden that comes with navigating our legal system. NetDivorce made the entire process as smooth and clear as possible. You are instructed to fill out an online questionnaire, which the service then uses to fill out the forms required by the courthouse. They provide extremely detailed instructions for how to file each batch of documents and are available via email for any questions you might have. I was so impressed with their customer service -- after each download of documents, Ed contacted me within an hour to ask if I had any questions. He replied to all of my inquiries promptly and with useful information. I would absolutely rate them 5/5 and recommend them to family and friends who are looking for divorce assistance in California. I feel so lucky to have located their services and am so grateful for all of their help. - Michele L.
- After 10 years of separation from my spouse, I finally figured it was time to finalize my marital status as single. I started the divorce process numerous times but was always overwhelmed by the amount of paperwork, time and effort required to complete the reams of forms and file the documents correctly. After researching many other service providers and reading what seemed liked hundreds of reviews, I decided to use NetDivorce. I am happy to report this was one of the best decisions I ever made! The online interview process which transferred my answers to the correct forms was very straight forward and easy to understand. Each "batch" of forms required to be filed with the court are reviewed by the NetDivorce staff to ensure they are complete and ready to be submitted - avoiding unnecessary delays due to procedural errors. When it came time to actually file the papers with the court, the detailed instructions on how to print and submit the forms was invaluable.I did have direct contact with the Ed West who assisted me with questions I had regarding the Marital Separation Agreement. He was professional and answered my inquiries completely and in a timely manner. I just received the final judgment in my CA divorce case and could not be happier with the service that NetDivorce provided. The complex process was explained step-by-step and the online forms were easy to complete. Don't get me wrong...filing for a divorce is a tedious and time consuming process but NetDivorce helped navigate this process by providing detailed instructions and great customer support. If you have an uncontested divorce, willing to put forth the effort by completing the online interview used to fill out the proper legal documents and can follow detailed instructions, I highly recommend NetDivorce! I am a very satisfied customer!- Robyn C.
The services I received from NetDivorce, LLC. was to help process a divorce between myself and my husband. I actually did extensive research for an online divorce. I originally met with a actually lawyer for consultation and the cost was out of range for me. Once I did my research for online divorce, I stumbled into NetDivorce, LLC. What I appreciated the most was the fact that this company was able to give accurate information between other online companies and themselves. Instead of just agreeing with what I read, I did the research for myself and also compared each company to the Better Business Bureau. To be very honest with you, when I first signed up, I wasn't sure if the price of the service was real, but it sure was. Once I signed up, the service was extremely helpful. Every sections from the initial interviews to the very end was extremely detailed and provided examples. In addition, Ed and Peter were outstanding. I had a million questions for each section or calculation and both lawyers were caring, helpful, patient, and informative. I honestly could not complete all my paperwork error free. Every email, phone call, instant message were addressed as soon as possible. What I really appreciated was after each process (there are 3 processes), each document you had to print included a checklist of what you needed to do before taking the form to the Superior Court. This checklist was extremely necessary. I could not be able to process all my paperwork correctly if I did not have this checklist in which the lawyers Ed and Peter provided. Anytime I needed changes made, corrections, advice, etc. They were there to help out with no hesitation. I have already shared my experience and recommendations to others. I definitely rate NetDivorce, LLC a 5 star. My advice to everyone is be patient, ask questions, and follow directions. Thank you for this opportunity to share my experience. I am forever grateful.- Abena W.
They absolutely met my expectations! Almost immediate responses to any question with extremely thorough answers. They are more thorough than I would have ever expected at this rate, or 100x this rate (regular lawyer rates). I chose them over a competitor because of their price - I'm cheap. I already have recommended their service. You get so much more than you pay for. Step by step to guide you through the process, keeps everything fun as you go (humor), supportive through this hard time, and available for any and all questions (never made me feel stupid or bothersome though I was regularly asking questions). A+ service. I've had friends that have paid for lawyers & have paid a fortune, yet Ed was more responsive and thorough than they were and didn't charge me for asking a question!
My expectations were exceeded. This is an excellent service and deserves to be lauded. They are very thorough, and at first what seems like over-information/direction is actually vital due to the immense complexity of the divorce process. Most of the actions were self-driven and therefore available on demand immediately when needed. When I did have questions, they responded almost instantly via email or chat. My friend who went through the same process with them gave them a high recommendation, I didn't even explore other offers because I trusted his judgment. They are prompt, efficient, cost effective (in fact the service is so good for the cost I'm not sure how they turn a profit), courteous, and seem genuinely invested in your success. It made the overwhelming legal process of divorce manageable, and at your own pace. Easily a 5, one of the better services I have ever used.
- David C.
NetDivorce, was easy to use. Explained everything, from start to finish, what to expect and affordable. I received weekly emails of the expected progress, no surprises. I would recommend them to everyone seeking a divorce. They helped make what could have been emotional time, stress free. Thank you to the people at NetDivorce.
- Lashone C.
Ed was exceptional, he really went over and above to help with every aspect of the divorce process. He even had to endure a long conversation with my ex to help with getting her to sign and notarize the documents. If you have a fairly uncomplicated suit and want to save thousands of dollars I highly recommend NetDivorce.
- John P.
This period of time is very difficult and the divorce process is complicated, yet Ed has been there constantly. The website was very easy to navigate. I was able to do the entire interview (documenting everything for the first batch of paperwork that gets submitted to the courts) in one day (very draining emotionally though). Any questions I had Ed quickly and fully answered. The first batch paperwork was easy to understand and all the pitfalls people could make were documented such that I didn't make the same ones. Filed my case & moved on to the second batch which was delivered to my ex. Of course, my ex then changed what he was going to agree to and we had to make some major changes. Ed was very polite, and made the updates for us once again. I'm now waiting on my ex once again, but that has nothing to do with Ed & netdivorce (as I always get responses from Ed within 24 hours - including on the weekends). I will be sure to document how the third batch goes once my ex does his part.
On a side note, my sister is going through a nasty divorce and is paying a fortune for her lawyer. When she sees the timely and thorough responses from Ed time & time again, her & my mom just comment about what an amazing deal I am getting and I couldn't agree more. Thank you netdivorce.com! -
They were excellent! It is never a good time when you are walking down this path. NetDivorce lives up to what I saw online. I looked at a lot of different sites and products. They lived up to each one of their promises. I would literally contact them via email and they would respond back within 2-3 minutes. I had questions regarding the Marital Settlement Agreement and frankly, they got online and walked me through everything. Whomever I would interact with was excellent and prompt. I was sometimes unsure about the circumstances of my case like how I should list my assets and liabilities and they walked me through my options.
I would give them 5 Stars! The cost was what it was and there were no hidden fees. Their instruction package was broken down and it was nothing if not thorough. For California customers like me they are fabulous and detailed! They would advise me on the simplest things like when to staple or hole punch documents, which was dependent on your county and what they accepted to offering guidance like how to be courteous to the staff in court. The hallmark of good quality management system is continuous improvement, which is what NetDivorce does by ensuring their process is current. They are actively seeking feedback from you and it is apparent in their written instructions. I would no doubt recommend them.
Exceeded my expectation!
If you're reading this review, you're probably at a difficult time in your life when you don't need more complications. I knew my divorce would not involve a huge court battle and began my online search. I was a little nervous choosing NetDivorce, as the price was so much more reasonable than most others, but the reviews won me over. Best decision during this whole process!!!
Just follow the clear steps spelled out for you. The web makes it sound like you file a couple of forms and you're on your way. Not at all. In the end there are reams of forms that have to be presented in a certain order and completed a certain way. If you want this to go quickly and painlessly, do this.
Upon completing a set of questions presented, your necessary forms are sent to you all filled out and in order. All you have to do is sign them There is also a checklist. Follow it and complete each task before moving on and you will sail right through this.
I can't begin to imagine how long it would have taken me to find and complete all of the forms online myself. When I went to file my neat package I saw others shuffling through pages of documents and sent away to get their affairs in order. I was able to step up to the window, get my documents stamped and get on my way. This is not a day you want to prolong! The clerk even complimented me on how well I had it all together!! County clerks never do that!
Do yourself a favor and spend a few dollars on this service and make it easy on yourself from this aspect. They are always immediately available and responsive when questions or difficulties arise and keep you on track. Frankly, the help I received was priceless.
Good luck and let someone help you on your way. - Carole M.
"First of all, I can't thank NetDivorce enough for your support. They were very good. The service is quick, professional, prompt and personal. Each time I sent an email, they responded specifically to my question either on the same day or that next day at the latest. They were very patient when answering my questions and explained everything clearly. The entry form was easy to fill out and understand. I was so lucky to find NetDivorce among all other search results. I was randomly searching Google and they were on the top and were the least expensive. I did not know how an online service worked and wanted to try it. I chose NetDivorce because they were the least expensive and they helped me reach this point with minimum cost. I already recommended them to co-workers and relatives. Ed responded most of the time and he was very prompt and thorough with his explanations. He stayed one step ahead of me by reviewing my information before I even went to the next step. This was a nice service to have. They made me feel confident. I got the judgment and I am free woman. I would like to give a good review to Business Consumer Alliance for following up with me so I could provide this review. Wishing you the best and more success!"

"I spent quite a bit of time researching online divorce sites- not just reading reviews online, but visiting several sites & comparing their formats for data input, etc. I also called most of the sites I was researching to see how easy it was to get someone on the phone- and not just anyone- but someone who could answer specific questions pertaining to my case (Summary Dissolution). If you are filing for divorce in California going with netdivoce.com is hands down by far the best choice- it's a no-brainer. For starters divorce filings in California a bit different than in other states- and net divorce.com specialize in California filings (the only one I could find that does). Furthermore- their customer service is stellar- they answer the phone & return calls & emails lighting fast. Their site is very easy to use & provides extremely thorough, detailed explanations for almost every step along the way. As if that wasn't enough- to be best online divorce site out there- they are also the least expensive- less than 1/2 the price of the majority of other online divorce sites! If you are looking for the very best online divorce site for a California divorce site- look no further- netdivorce.com is it!"

"From the very beginning, I felt taken care of through a trying time with NetDivorce and my consultant, Ed. The amount of paperwork was a bit overwhelming doing it myself, but NetDivorce had such clear instructions it was fool proof. And when I did have a question or my eyes glazed over, Ed usually responded within 2 hours. I am very grateful for the quality of the service and the care. In the event you do need help with a divorce, I couldn't recommend them enough. So glad they were there for me on this journey to bring some ease to my chaos."
- Jodie B.
They answered my questions and anticipated questions proactively. Information was really clear and easy to understand.
"They exceeded my expectations. I only expected to have the paperwork and the steps that were provided on the website but I received personalized assistance that was really helpful to me in completing the process. They answered my questions and anticipated questions proactively. Information was really clear and easy to understand. They are very reasonable and in fact I think it’s under priced based on the services. I recommended them to the court at the clerk because she was really impressed with how organized all of my paperwork was. She asked which service I used to recommend to others that try to complete paperwork themselves."- Nerissa T.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL
NONE OF THIS STUFF WILL HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU HIRE NETDIVORCE
NetDivorce’s COMPLETE fee is $129. You cannot pay us more. This is a simple no-BS concept. California consumers expect to be told about all fees up-front with nothing hidden.
Our California online divorce competitors cannot match NetDivorce’s fee. So they cheat. And you are the target of their price fraud. They claim that their fee is $139 so that you will think that their fee is almost the same as NetDivorce’s $129. It’s not.
All of our competitors with fees of $139 (plus a few more with higher fees) charge MONTHLY fees. That’s despite the fact that they claim, “One Time Payment” and “No Hidden Fees.” Don’t take our word. Here’s the proof of their claims from one of these websites. They are all similar.
They will hit your credit card every month AND EVERY YEAR until you cancel.
This example happens to be our competitor in Ukraine, but Indian-based competitors do the same thing.
Some of the competitors we know who engage in this price trickery are onlinedivorce.com, getdivorcepapers.com, mydivorcepapers.com, completecase.com, californiaonlinedivorce.com and onlinedivorcecalifornia.com. There may be more.
In a California divorce, you will normally need 6 months of service. The average monthly fee these sites charge is about $40. So that means your fee will be $339, NOT $139. That’s $139 PLUS (5 months X $40) = $339.
Also, imagine how fast these companies will work on your case if they get paid every month.
So they will hit your credit card monthly, but also annually. You must cancel both subscriptions you’ve agreed to. And you can only cancel the subscription by phone where they keep you waiting on hold for hours and then disconnect you. You are the target of these conmen. Stay away!!
NONE OF THIS STUFF WILL HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU HIRE NETDIVORCE
ASK NETDIVORCE YOUR QUESTION(S) ABOUT CALIFORNIA UNCONTESTED DIVORCE
Please be aware that NetDivorce does not come into divorce cases that have ALREADY been filed at court. Such cases almost always have problems built into them. That is why divorce consumers frequently bring their existing cases to NetDivorce. And that’s also why NetDivorce must decline such cases.
GET STARTED TODAY
How long does it take to get a divorce in California?
California Family Code 2339 requires that a divorce cannot be finalized until a minimum of 6 months have passed after the respondent has been served or has filed an appearance. There are no exceptions to this. You may hear about people getting their divorce judgments signed or 'entered' in 2 or 3 months. That is common. Depending on which county you live in, you may get your divorce judgment signed in as little as about 7 weeks or as long as 5+ months. However, that divorce judgment cannot terminate your marriage for a minimum of 6 months.
Will I have to go to a court hearing to get my uncontested divorce in California?
Almost certainly not. Hearings are expensive and time-consuming for courts. They try to avoid them. However, the final decision on a hearing, even in an uncontested divorce, is always the judge's, and judges have different views on hearings. Some require a hearing in certain cases (such as long-term marriages without any provision for spousal support) and some judges don't ever require a hearing.
Will I need a lawyer to get my California divorce?
That must depend on the facts of your case. If you have a contested case, a very large marital estate, a very complex case (trusts, active businesses, tax problems, etc.) or a case that involves domestic violence, you really should use a certified family law specialist attorney. You will be glad you did. However, if your case is relatively simple and uncontested, you can hire an experienced online divorce provider to prepare all of your paperwork and guide you through the process.
What is the biggest scam in online divorce?
I don't know where my spouse is. Can I still get a divorce in California?
Yes, but it is much more difficult and time-consuming. If your spouse cannot be served with papers in the normal manner, your Summons must be published in your local newspaper for 4 consecutive weeks before your 6 months waiting period begins. If you have low income, the Summons can be posted in the court lobby for those 4 weeks. Publication (or posting) can only be done with a judge's consent, which is very difficult to get. Judges always suspect that you really know where your spouse is. So you must prove to the judge that you have done everything reasonably possible to find your spouse. Again, the publication (or posting) is not an easy process.
