Plans & Pricing FAQ
How do I get started on my divorce?
Choose the plan you would like above and then choose if you would like to pay in one payment or installments, and add that option to your cart. You will then check out like any ecommerce site after entering your payment information. We will send a confirmation email with instructions on how to access our software to get started on your divorce.
What if I need a lawyer?
Good news, we have them! If you need or want to consult a lawyer at any time during your divorce process, you can book time here by the hour with no retainer or minimum time commitment. We also have finance experts and mediators you can work with, too.
Do I have to start my divorce with my spouse?
With Hello Divorce, you can start on your paperwork with or without your spouse on board. Keep in mind, your spouse will need to participate in your divorce (be served initial paperwork, sign the final agreement, etc.)
How long will my divorce take?
With Hello Divorce, you can fill out your forms at your own pace using our software. If you use one of our services that include our help reviewing, filing, and serving, we will respond to you within 1-2 business days. Once we file with the court, the processing time varies from county to county. We always file paperwork in the way that is the fastest for that county.
I heard there was a waiting period. What does that mean?
In most states, there is a court-mandated waiting period before your divorce can be finalized. Generally, this won’t prevent you from filling out and filing your paperwork and moving forward with your divorce during the time period, it just means your divorce won’t be “official” until at least the end of the waiting period.
How is Hello Divorce different than other online divorce sites?
Unlike most websites that offer forms or legal advice, we provide you all these options and more – from our best-in-tech DIY Divorce to access to experienced, flat-fee mediators and lawyers who work within the HD platform. Additionally, other sites require spouses work through the process together from the beginning – we realize that’s not always possible.
How do I know which plan to choose?
In general, pick the plan that’s right for the information you have right now because you can always add on financial services, legal advice, and mediation hours, or upgrade to another plan. If you’re still not sure, book a free call with us to discuss options!
- DIY – You want to use our software for your forms but try to file & serve on your own.
- Pro – You definitely want our help with serving & filing, but for now you need a plan for just you, not your spouse.
- Plus – You know both you and your spouse will (eventually) want Hello Divorce’s help to file and serve. You may even want to add on mediation help later, but aren’t sure right now.
- Cooperative – You and your spouse are starting the process together and know you have several issues to work out with a mediator and want to get started.
What costs do the plans not include?
We don’t include the initial filing fee in our plan prices.
If you need to use a process server to serve your filed documents to your spouse, you should expect an additional fee of approximately $75 – $100. Service to another state or country sometimes involves additional fees as well.
International divorces can potentially have additional fees depending upon the US and the overseas spouse’s country’s regulations.
Can same-sex couples use Hello Divorce?
We work with everyone! In fact, Hello Divorce makes it a point to understand the extra challenges divorcing as a same-sex couples presents in some states. We have helped hundreds of same-sex couples successfully divorce in the states we work in.
What does your software actually do?
Our award-winning software uses conditional logic to populate and generate all of the divorce forms you need in your state throughout the process – without you ever having to look at the forms or figure out which ones to fill out.
You’ll simply be answering questions about you and your situation on your computer, and our software does the rest.
If you work with a Hello Divorce account coordinator, they’ll be your extra review and make sure everything is done in the right way for court acceptance.
Do you have payment plans?
Almost all of our services can be paid in installments or in a single fee. We do charge a bit more if you pay over time, but we want to make sure everyone has lots of options as they are going through the process.
What's different about how you charge for your lawyers?
Too often, lawyers are considered the only option for legal resolution, and most lawyers charge retainers (a deposit on services) and then bill all work on the case in tenths of an hour. If your retainer is exhausted, an additional retainer is demanded or bills become due as incurred. With a flat fee, you know exactly what the cost will be – no hidden or unpredictable fees.

How do I meet with my mediator or lawyer?
All consulting, coaching, finance expert, and mediation services are done by telephone or online video conferencing at times that are convenient for you. You book online after you purchase the service, and can choose from day or evening options.
Can I still use Hello Divorce if my spouse and I don't agree on everything?
Yes – whether you agree right now or not, there are 20+ mandatory forms you must complete for the divorce process. Our software you through these documents with easy to understand, step-by-step instructions.
We also offer many resources and tools to help you strategize your best position, see where you have leverage, review tips for negotiations and court hearings and prepare your documents. If you still haven’t gotten to an agreement after you’ve completed a few steps, we have mediators who are specifically trained to help.
Of course, if your divorce gets super complicated or you have domestic violence in your relationship, most people use Hello Divorce as a secondary resource.
Can I use Hello Divorce if my spouse resides outside the US?
We can process your divorce through the Divorce Plus or Cooperative Divorce memberships.
- The overseas spouse must be willing to cooperate, they must have a valid U.S. mailing address, and they must provide notarized, original signatures for the final judgment; the notarization must take place at a US embassy or consulate.
- Additional service fees may apply.
- If the international spouse’s country prevents us from providing complete service, you will only be charged for the work performed then refunded.
- International divorce usually requires more processing time, potentially up to 18 months, due to mail and court processing delays.
- Sometimes it may be easier for the spouse residing in the other country to be the Petitioner. (There is no advantage or disadvantage to being the Petitioner or Respondent). Talk to us about your options.
What if I can't locate my spouse?
In general, you need to be able to serve your spouse with divorce paperwork for you to proceed with divorce. If you can’t locate your spouse, the court generally requires you to have lots of documentation detailing all you’ve done to locate them before you can proceed. Hello Divorce can’t help with this part of the process.
What if I need to cancel my plan?
You can cancel your membership by emailing email@example.com.
The amount you are refunded will be the remainder of your payment after services performed by Hello Divorce are covered and depending where you are in the process.
