herein are reserved.
Forms: Your forms will come already filled in with
the information from the questionnaire completed by you. However,
there may be some sensitive information that you may want to fill
in yourself, such as financial data, information about other children
not in your case, and other compromising data.
Service Free Gifts and Bonuses: The free gifts are 1. Free Sample
Courtroom Statement. This is a "sample" of what a plaintiff/petitioner
might say when they are in the courtroom with the Judge. It is a
sample, so you are to modify it to fit your circumstances. The Document
Do It Yourself Service does not warrant the Free Sample Courtroom
Statement. 2. Free Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA). Some States
do not want couples using and MSA. Therefore the same information
on the MSA shall be incorporated into the final Judgement of Divorce.
3. Free Name Change. This is done, only if the wife wants her maiden
Complaints: The Document Do It Yourself Service is
devoted to providing you with quality documentation. However, in
the improbable event you should have any complaint with regard to
our service or any of the products purchased from The Document Do It Yourself Service, please send us an e-mail.
Refunds: Transcribing documents is a complicated
issue and we know that a host of things could arise during the process.
Our refund policy reflects our ideal of, "We are here to help
every single one of our customers through the process." All
refunds given will be given based only on the Guarantee which states:
"If the Judge fails to grant your [case] due to a paperwork
typographical error, then we will correct the problem. If we cannot
correct the problem, then your money will be refunded 101%."
If a refund is given outside of this predefined Guarantee it will
be at the sole discretion of The Document Do It Yourself Service.
There will not be refunds given for: couples who get back together,
the purchaser changes their mind, the couple are not qualified to
get a [case] completed in their respective State, problems relating
to computers, failure to ask for adjustments, the purchaser completes
their own forms, the purchaser alters our forms, claims of credit
card abuse, or a spouse or client decides to contest the [case]
and get a lawyer. Also, if the local court does not accept the forms
initially, we will adjust the forms, if we have them. Some local
courts have forms that are not available to have on computer. In
this case, you will have to provide us with the local forms, in
whatever format you can, if you would like to have a particular
local form completed for you. This situation is adjustable and does
not deem a refund. We are not responsible for local court forms.
If a refund is given by discretion of The Document Do It Yourself
Service outside of the Guarantee, then a $25 dollar administrative
refund fee will be accessed. To receive a refund based on the Guarantee,
you will be responsible to provide the court rejection notice that
is received from the court.
Various Charges: (1) If in the course of your [case],
you change States and require DDIYS to prepare your documents for
a different State than you had origionally written on your divorce
questionnaire, there is a $50 charge for adjusting all the documents
for the new State. This is done, because all States are different,
and we would have to start over on your documents. This also applies
if your State changes their forms in the time between when you receive
the forms from us and the time you file. You will need to update
your forms and the process will have to be redone. (2) If in the
course of your [case], you decide to switch the Plaintiff and Defendant
around, there is a $25 charge for adjusting all of the documents.
3. There are additional fees associated with doing a "Missing
Spouse divorce". You will need to run an ad in the newspaper
in the area, that the court recommends for legal publications. This
fee will be handled by the customer. 4. Any fees associated
with "Service" to the Defendant (or equivalent) shall
be handled by the customer. 5. Any Court Costs that are needed
in the [case] shall be handled by the customer. These fees are paid
directly to the courthouse and not to The Document Do It Yourself
Military Divorce/Annulment/Legal Separation: When
one or both spouses are active in the military at the time of their
[case] or dissolution, they will need to sign the waiver of the
Solder and Sailor Relief Act. Both parties must be in agreement
to the [case] and be willing to sign all documents needing their
signature. Also, at least one of the Spouses must be living in the
US to complete the [case] at their local county courthouse. Or at
least, be willing to travel multiple times to complete their case.
The parties must qualify for residency in the State and County they
wish to file. The Plaintiff (or the equivalent) will be the person
who needs to attend the local county court. The occasions requiring
attendance are the initial filing, the final hearing, and any other
occasions in the middle of the case that are required.
