“Is this site legitimate”?
“Is this just a scam”?
“I really don’t trust the internet”
“Is this site legal – or a clever platform for theft”?
A scam is a device or intent to deceive for profit. To rip you off. To steal your money. We agree that you need to be careful because there are web sites used exclusively to collect personal information and your credit card number.
If what they offer is too good to be true, it usually is too good to be true. The worst culprits are the sites that offer stunning goods or services for under 10 bucks. What these sites want is your card number so they can quickly use it without your knowledge. This phenomenon is not new, and it is not limited to the internet. The internet just makes it easier to hit and run.
What CanDivorce.ca does for you.
This site provides an incredible amount of free information about separation and divorce. This site promotes books published by Colin Kennedy, and promotes document preparation service. The result gives you an alternative to paying thousands to a lawyer for the same outcome. And, importantly this site is an alternative to going it alone, so you can avoid the pitfalls and frustrating delays. This site is discrete and protects your privacy. 84% or our business comes from referrals, and that is a significant plus.
What We Do NOT do.
Do you tell us your social insurance number? Your health card number? Credit card numbers? CanDivorce.ca does not collect your credit card information or any personal information that is not public knowledge. What? That’s right. Your name, address, your kids names, when you were born, when and where you were married – is all public. Check out the birth announcements. Your married name and your maiden name is right there for the world to see. Even with identity theft being a news item, people still publish their mother’s name. And your mother’s name is often one of those secret questions for password retrieval. Hmmmm.
This site does not engage in any e-mail campaigns. We do not capture your e-address and send you annoying and unwanted e-mail. Yes, you can download free books without revealing your e-address. We don’t have banner ads, pop-ups, special too-good-to-be-true offers, or fake claims.
Compliance Issues, and truth.
We will not lie to you, and will not lie to the courts.
We are not selling get-rich-quick schemes or off-shore drugs. We deal with legal issues under two main federal legislation; the Divorce Act and the Child Support Guidelines. We have a duty to the senior courts not to misrepresent, not to deceive the court, or to circumvent justice. We can not risk our work and reputation with the court system by trying to snow the court. Huh? Let me put it this way. We must be truthful – truth is the foundation of our legal system. We will not advise you to use a separation date that is not your true separation date. We will not process your divorce application if there is a chance of reconciliation, or if we suspect it’s an immigration scam. We will not suggest any method to get around the waiting periods.
Pay your money and not get your service?
This is a real concern for almost all your business transactions, internet or not. So what safeguards to you have?
We do not collect your card information; we use PayPal because PayPal is secure and if things go wrong PayPal has an excellent and fast complaint resolution department. Simply log on to PayPal and they open a file, and at the same time the file is opened they nail our account for the money. Your money is on hold until the dispute is satisfied. This happens, and will continue to happen because it is the nature of any business that people sometimes want their money returned. Yes we give refunds.
Here is a recent letter.
I just wanted to take the time to thank you personally for your service. You sent me my divorce papers in April of this year and your service was excellent. Your professionalism and customer service were greatly appreciated. I filed for divorce in April and now have my final divorce papers.(June 30)
Thank you again for making this process easy during a difficult time. I would recommend you to any of my friends or family if they needed the service. Thanks again for being so wonderful and helpful”.
What if there are errors?
This too happens. We make mistakes. So do our clients; people get their marriage dates wrong, and there are typo’s with children’s names. Errors happen, and errors are quickly resolved. It is part of the guarantee. We had a man recently tell us the court would not accept his filing. He had received his forms months before he filed – and were out of date. Did he get new forms without any extra fee? Sure did.
The hidden fee issue
This is common, and very understandable. Take a look at today’s newspaper; the car ads, and the electronic gear ads. There is a common theme with hidden fees, obscure tiny print, and impossible mail-in rebates. No wonder you have concerns with hidden fees. We have no hidden fees. Ever.
Reputation is King
We have an excellent reputation, but we can not please everyone. Divorce can be tough on you, the other side’s lawyer can try to beat you, or steal your money, your ex can file an argument just to seek a pound of revenge. Some clients don’t like to follow the rules and want them bent. It’s all part of life, and the point? We can not please everyone, not even the BBB. We have 3 unresolved complaints in the past 36 months. Considering the volume of clients 3 unresolved complaints is very acceptable. The BBB is a sore point with me because all it takes is for someone to complain and a company gets a black mark. By their own admission the BBB does not investigate claims, their computer software records when someone is mad. And the big thing is that there is no way to satisfy some people.
What is a lawyer’s opinion of on-line divorce work?
We don’t hear from lawyers, but they do buy our books. Mostly we feel that lawyers mistrust the internet and any service that seems to step on their turf. If you want to score points with your lawyer tell him you’d rather pay him $4,000 instead of risking $249 on-line for exactly the same outcome.
and with integrity
ps. Did I mention that 84% of new business comes directly from referrals?
|It’s True. When you hire me to prepare your legal package your divorce goes smoothly and quickly. You make two trips to the court counter. You hand over your completed documents knowing that your papers are correct and in accordance with the Divorce Act and the Child Support Guidelines.
The fee to prepare your legal documents and guide you through the system is a modest $249. There are no hidden fees, no taxes, no handling fees, no shipping chargesSend your on-line application, it will take only 2 minutes
I here all the horror stories about lawyers and going to court, but I don’t want to pay thousands of dollars that I do not have, but I am nervous about going it alone. I did see a lawyer and he told me that everything I had done was in order and he was impressed that I did my homework…sorry for rambling on , and thank you for a inexpensive divorce, sure saved a lot of money.
You divorce quickly without adversarial lawyers
Avoid the pain of going it alone.
