Divorce Online In 3 Days Lawyers

How the scam works:

While wondering how to find a good divorce lawyer, you may fall for the Divorce In 3 Days Lawyers Scam aka Divorce Online or Quick Divorce Attorney Scheme. There are definitely some legitimate family divorce lawyers that could help you with a faster divorce process, but we are referring to crooks impersonating real attorneys or even lawyers with questionable practices. How does the scam work?

Scammers advertise themselves online as top divorce lawyers who will take on your case and resolve it quickly, whether that's in three, seven, or 14 days. They may use key phrases such as 'best local divorce attorneys', 'for a fast divorce, click here', or 'affordable divorce lawyers'.

Let's say you found one that piques your interest and go ahead and click on the link. You choose your terms and create “an account” with them.

After that, you send in all your paperwork as attachments, along with wiring the money for the period that you want your divorce to be ready in. Charges are astronomical, and victims still pay, while the process has not even been started and never will be. They have also provided the scammer with all their personal info.

How to avoid the Divorce Online Lawyers scam:

Despite your busy schedule, always try to meet a lawyer face-to-face; at least you can see who is taking your money. If you choose the online route, use only reputable agencies that have an army of lawyers ready to answer your divorce questions. The best divorce lawyers are also the ones that are recommended by a lot of people, whether that's divorce lawyers for men or women.

Since a couple's separation is a very sensitive time for all parties involved, many victims fall for this scam without doing their diligence, regardless of the city or state they live in. Whether you are looking for a San Diego divorce lawyer or an attorney in Houston, research all the forums and legitimate review websites you can find.

Some of the states where you may get a quick divorce time are Alaska (30 days), Nevada (42 days), South Dakota (60 days) and Idaho (62 days).
