My Smart Divorce Course offers civil, economical and smart way to save
RICHARDSON: Divorcing couples in the DFW area looking for an alternative to several thousands of dollars in legal bills and big retainers for a non-contested divorce have a new alternative through a short educational program designed to help get couples through the process with all the necessary forms and personalized assistance.
My Smart Divorce Course, LLC, operated by a Richardson-based Family Law Firm, offers a two-to-three hour course on weeknights and Saturday mornings that is the answer to collaborative law negations and high-cost attorney’s fees.
“We educate divorcing couples who are looking at a non-contested divorce and want to get through the process as inexpensively as possible,” said Julie Lucio. “When a person registers, they share important information about their case with us and we provide the necessary forms and instruction regarding what is needed for their specific situation.”
Lucio said with the number of divorces on the rise and the economy struggling, many people who are looking to end their marriages simply can’t afford high-dollar divorces and they’re looking for alternatives.
“It’s sad that there is a marketplace for DIY divorces but the reality of the times demand alternatives that one normally might not consider,” Lucio said. “My Smart Divorce Course is designed to meet the demand.”
To register, those interested can go online to MySmartDivorceCourse.com and go through the online registration, or they can call 972-664-1807. Courses are held each month on a Saturday morning and on Thursday evenings. Each course takes between 90-120 minutes and is taught by a licensed Texas Family Law Attorney. Courses are offered in English and in Spanish.
The total cost for the course is $600, with $300 paid to register and the remaining $300 the day of the course. After an initial phone call, a class date is set up where attorneys provide the forms that will be necessary for each case and have them ready for instruction the day of the course. During the course, students complete the forms in the class setting with assistance from the instructor/attorney.
After finishing the course, participants are prepared to file their divorce petition.
Operated under the umbrella of Lucio, LaFleur & Associates, My Smart Divorce Course, LLC is a DFW-area based company that specializes in non-contested divorce case instruction. The attorneys involved do not actually become counsel for those who take the course, as it is an instructional relationship only. Because of this, the company is able to provide educational assistance to participants at a much lower rate.
