Mydivorcepapers.com is a well-established provider in the divorce forms arena. Their price is quite a bit lower than the high end divorce form providers.
At the time of this review, mydivorcepapers.com is advertising a price of $159 for its Complete Divorce Forms Preparation Service. This price comes with an asterisk (*) noting that it is a limited time offer, but we didn’t see any other pricing on the site. Among our our comparison of the top five divorce form providers, only one company — DivorceWriter — offers a lower price, at $149.

Neat Bonus Feature #1: Dedicated Case Manager
Mydivorcepapers.com offers a lot of great bonus features, including a Dedicated Case Manager. In the world of online legal forms, it’s rare to get the same person twice when you call or email for support, and we can see how this would be a valuable feature.

Neat Bonus Feature #3: Free Calculators
You can access a free child support calculator and alimony calculator through the mydivorcepapers.com website. These could be helpful in determining the terms of your divorce agreement.
The primary negative factor we found for Mydivorcepapers.com was its B+ BBB ranking. While many websites would be happy to make the A/B Honor roll, most of the BBB-Accredited online legal form sites we review boast an A+ ranking. In addition, we have received numerous complaints about lack of service and/or refunds (see below).
We really like the bonus features and pricing offered by mydivorcepapers.com, but couldn’t recommend due the negative factors above.
