Do It Yourself Divorce


It is estimated that 75% of couples seeking divorce in San Diego try some form of DIY divorce.  Because the process is riddled with court requirements and there are important legal and tax considerations, it is wise to consult with an attorney along the way no matter how "simple" your divorce may seem.
