How this works in ten simple steps
- YOU - Complete our online questionnaire – it takes about ten minutes entering only basic information such as your names and addresses, date of marriage and separation, children’s names and dates of birth and so on. You do not need to have your agreement completed when you begin the process. Payment is made at that time to Divorce Wizards for $599. You also authorize us to charge your debit or credit card in advance for any add- ons you request as described below. Additional services are totally optional and you can complete your divorce for $599 plus Court filing fees.
- DIVORCE WIZARDS - We prepare and email your initial documents to you for your signature to begin your case.
- YOU - You snail mail your documents back to our Newport Beach office. They must have “wet signatures”. See extra services available below if you prefer to email or fax your documents back to us. You will need to pay your filing fee when you return the documents. In most CA counties, the current filing fee is $435. Check is payable to Clerk of the Court. Take a look at the extra services below if you prefer to pay your filing fee by credit card and we will advance the Court fees on your behalf.
- DIVORCE WIZARDS - Your signed documents will be hand delivered to the Court (Orange and LA Counties only) by our special attorney messenger service. They will be mailed priority mail to all other CA counties. Attorney Messenger delivery service to all other CA counties available by request.
- DIVORCE WIZARDS - After your papers are filed, we will email you the required disclosure documents for you to exchange with each other. In addition, we will email you two brief worksheets to complete regarding your agreements about your children, division of assets/debts and support, whichever apply to your situation. We use this information to complete your final documents.

- THE COURT - Your divorce will not be final until six months and one day from the day the final papers are filed OR when the Judge signs, whichever is later. When the divorce is final, the Orange County Court will mail you a one page form informing you your divorce is final.
- DIVORCE WIZARDS - I will receive your actual divorce decree and email a copy to each of you. (Except for LA Court filings who will mail the Judgment directly to the parties and not return a copy to me. If you like, you can email me a copy for my files in the event you need some modifications in the future).

**We have no control over the Courts and their processing times. Most counties are taking a few weeks to process the initial documents and five or six months to process the Judgment paperwork. Expedited processing, only available in the Orange County Court, reduces the waiting time, but by no means is it quick. The paperwork may still take four months to process at the Court instead of six months. Rush service means we rush the document preparation and delivery to the Court. We have no way to control the court timing which may be slower than you expect.
