CONSIDERING A DIVORCE IN SOUTH DAKOTA?

If you and your spouse decide to file your South Dakota divorce Pro Se (without a lawyer), you most likely have a relatively simple uncontested divorce. You both are in agreement in regards to the issues revolving around property, debt and child custody and support if you have minor children. If you can work together and are both willing to sign the required divorce papers and Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA), then doing your own divorce without a lawyer to save on legal fees is an ideal option.

Advantages of Doing Your Own Divorce in South Dakota

Pro Se divorce in South Dakota means you are representing yourself in your own divorce without legal representation. With or without legal representation, the simple filing process does not change. When you do your own divorce in SD, you are taking the responsibility of preparing your own divorce papers and submitting them to the Clerk at the courthouse. 3StepDivorceTM is designed to make preparing your divorce papers easy, fast, and affordable, which takes the difficulty out of doing it yourself.

1. Cost. By going Pro Se for a divorce you avoid the expenses of hiring a lawyer. The largest expense in a divorce, whether contested or uncontested , is typically the legal fees.

In South Dakota the cost of a Pro Se divorce is the filing fees, which is $95 plus any fees associated with the documents preparation. With 3StepDivorceTM for South Dakota you are looking at a total cost of around $400.

2. Control. Filing your own divorce allows you to negotiate your own settlement, prepare your own paperwork and file when you are ready.

The divorce starts and finishes on a time-line controlled by you and the court directly.

Deciding to Hire a Lawyer for Your Divorce in South Dakota

Any complicated divorce decreases the likelihood of an amicable divorce. Complicated cases โ€“ those where there is a lot of money involved or several issues are being disputed often demand the skills of an experienced lawyer who can advise your of your rights and help you negotiate a fair settlement.

Most people looking for a lawyer begin by asking advice from a friend or someone whose opinion they value, including family members. Personal referral is probably one of the best ways to find a good lawyer as most rely on referrals as their only source of advertising. And in the end, most people who hire a lawyer decide based on their comfort level and the lawyerโ€™s cost.
