How it works

Accessing a dedicated provider law firm doesn’t have to be a hassle. In fact, LegalShield makes it possible to receive legal advice for divorce in four simple steps.

Step 1: Provide advice & consultation

Once you become a LegalShield Member, you’ll have access to talk to a provider lawyer and get advice on what to do next. You can also chat through frequently asked child custody questions if you’re concerned about what will happen to your children after the divorce.

Step 2: Representing you in court

If you do go to court, your LegalShield provider lawyer will be there to represent you if needed for an uncontested divorce when both parties agree in writing and net material assets of the marriage are under $500K.

Uncontested Divorce services are available 90 consecutive days from the effective date of your plan and also include preparation of documents.  

If you and your spouse can come to an agreement, your lawyer will negotiate a settlement that is fair to both parties and work on changing custody orders that are unfair.

Step 3: Review documents & contracts

Your provider lawyer can review documents related to your divorce, such as property settlement agreements, prenuptial agreements, an ex parte child custody order, and typical child custody arrangements. A LegalShield membership provides 15 pages of review per subject matter.

Step 4: Draft additional documents & contracts

If necessary, your online access to a provider lawyer can draft further documents and contracts related to your divorce, if needed at a 25% discount from their hourly rate.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

How long does a divorce take?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the length of time it takes to get a divorce depends on the specific situation. In general, however, the process can take anywhere from a few months to several years.

What is the difference between a legal separation and a divorce?

The main difference is that a divorce is a permanent end to the marriage, while a legal separation does not necessarily mean that the marriage is over. Usually, a legal separation can be reversed if the couple reconciles, while a divorce cannot. Uncontested Separation and Uncontested Divorce services are available 90 consecutive days from the effective date on your LegalShield personal legal plan.

What are the main types of custody?

The main types of custody are legal, physical and joint. Typically legal custody gives the parent the right to make important decisions for the child, such as moving out of state or choosing the right healthcare. Sole custody means that only one parent has the legal right to make decisions about the child’s welfare, while joint custody means that both parents have equal say in those decisions.

Each state and jurisdiction have its own requirements so check with a lawyer who knows the law where your matter exists. Under the Uncontested Divorce or Uncontested Separation services, all issues would need to be agreed upon in writing. Child custody not agreed upon would be at the 25% discount.

What can be used against you in a custody battle?

In a custody battle, almost anything can be used against you if it shows you are an unfit parent. This can include criminal history, history of drug or alcohol abuse, and even evidence that you have neglected or abused your child in the past. Under the Uncontested Divorce or Uncontested Separation services, all issues would need to be agreed upon in writing and available 90 consecutive days from the effective date. Child custody not agreed upon would be at the 25% discount.
