Additional Complaint Information

(See Additional Information section below.)

In a letter dated February 7, 2011, BBB contacted the company regarding their advertisement in local newspapers. The advertisement read, “Divorce with or without children $125.00. With free name change documents and marital settlement agreement. Fast and easy. Call us 24hrs./7days: 1-888-789-0198;”

BBB cited a pattern of complaints including: 

    • confusion about the services consumers thought they had purchased 

    • receipt of some – but not all – documents referenced when calling the 888 phone number 

    • documents that were rejected by courts in the consumer’s geographic location 

    • an inability to contact anyone from the company to discuss customer service issues

While acknowledging the company typically responds to complaints by issuing a refund, BBB also asked the following: 

    • Are your documents created to address specific filing requirements by state? 

    • Have the documents been reviewed by attorney’s to assure they are able to be used for the purposes stated? 

    • Do you have a refund policy if materials are not acceptable in the buyer’s state? 

    • Can you substantiate the advertised claim that “Court Divorce Service is the leading self-help divorce websites.”?

BBB received no response from the company.
