Broward County has kicked off a new system that allows people to file for divorce online without the necessity of an attorney. This simplified system is an effort to help those couples who really don't need an attorney, or who cannot afford one. I am sure that other counties will soon follow suit and I'm also sure there will be many problems along the way that computer guys are going to have to fix. We'll wait to see whether this comes to Orange County and whether they allow attorneys to use the system as well.
