The Divorce Store Satisfaction Guarantee
The Divorce Store guarantees your satisfaction with our services. If you are not satisfied with our services, simply call toll free 1-877-DIV-STOR during our normal business hours within 60 days of purchase. We will work to resolve all issues with the documents (prior to filing with the courts). We can not refund money once you submit your documents to the courts due to time and expense already dedicated to your legal document preparation.
The Divorce Store® also provides in-office legal document preparation services for divorce and other family law matters at our offices in Phoenix and Mesa, Arizona. Those persons who work directly with our legal document preparers are referred to as "clients." The Divorce Store® normally prepares, files and processes customized documents for our "clients."
What Information Do We Collect and How?
The Divorce Store keeps track of information in order to give you a more enjoyable, convenient shopping experience. When you register (log in), you will be asked for your email address and a password so that we can provide you access to your account in the future. Before completing your first purchase, we will ask you for your name, phone number, email, billing and shipping addresses. This information, along with your credit card number, is necessary to fulfill your order. Logging in does NOT obligate you in any way to The Divorce Store. In addition, we will keep track of past purchases you have made to provide you with a personalized profile of your shopping history. In addition, we may also ask you for information regarding your and your family's shopping preferences and demographics in order for us to better fill your needs. However, all information not necessary to fulfill your order is optional.

How We Protect Your Information
The Divorce Store® is committed to protecting the information we receive from you. Our site encrypts your credit card number and other personal information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology to provide for the secure transmission of the information from your PC to our servers. In addition, only those employees who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are allowed such access.
Secure Shopping at The Divorce Store®
At The Divorce Store®, you can shop with confidence. We use SSL encryption technology, digital certificates, secure commerce servers, and authentication to ensure that your personal information is secure online.
Typos and Omissions
While The Divorce Store® tries very hard to ensure the accuracy of the information we provide, we are not responsible for vendor availability, typographical errors, technical inaccuracies, product pricing errors or omissions. The Divorce Store® has the right to cancel any orders placed for any product listed at an incorrect price or shown with incorrect information, whether due to typographical error or otherwise and whether or not your order was accepted or your credit card charged. Upon any such cancellation, if your credit card has already been charged for the purchase, The Divorce Store® will promptly issue a full credit to your account.
Changes in Policy
Our client files may include questionnaires completed by the client, sales agreements, our legal document preparers' notes, process service information, documents and correspondence from our clients and others, and copies of documents prepared by The Divorce Store® or other persons. All information in client files is the property of The Divorce Store® and will not be released to anyone under any circumstances except as further addressed in this section. Our clients are entitled to copies of all documents, questionnaires, agreements and documents and will be provided copies as required. There is a fee for additional copies if the client loses or otherwise requests additional copies.
Is There Any Other Way That User Information Might Be Disclosed?
The Divorce Store® may disclose information in order to comply with a subpoena, court order, administrative or governmental order, or any other requirement of law, or when The Divorce Store®, in its sole discretion, deems it necessary in order to protect the safety of any person or the public. Any information obtained by The Divorce Store® may be used by The Divorce Store® for the purpose of collecting fees owed in the event that suit or collection action is necessary to collect fees owed to The Divorce Store®.
You should be aware that under Federal Law, documents filed in any court are considered "public records" and once filed anyone can view those documents at that court, and in some instances, over the Internet. Additionally, the other party in an action will be receiving copies of all filed documents as part of the legal action. In some cases it is necessary to publish the summons in a Legal Notices newspaper in order to effect service on the other party when the other party can not otherwise be served.
Assisting the Opposing Party in a Legal Action
We are not mediators and will not relay communications or negotiate between our clients and the opposing party.
The Divorce Store® will not knowingly assist the opposing party in a pending legal action. In other words if we prepare an action for you, we will not knowingly assist the other party in filing a response.
The Divorce Store® has filed over 24,000 divorces in Maricopa County since 1993 and has locations in both Phoenix and Mesa, Arizona. It has happened that both parties engaged The Divorce Store® on the same day to prepare a divorce. If The Divorce Store® discovers that it has provided service to opposing parties at the same time, both clients will be notified immediately that this has occurred and that the files have been sealed, and that one specific employee is assigned to each file. Neither employee will be permitted to discuss the matter with the other employee. No other employees will be allowed to assist either party or access to these files, for the protection of both parties. We only know of one instance where this has happened.
Once an action is completed, The Divorce Store® reserves the right to prepare subsequent documents for the opposing party in a previous action. In other words if we did a divorce for you and your ex-spouse now wants to modify the child support we reserve the right to prepare and process documents for your ex, but not until the previous action is final. Under no circumstances would anything in your file be available to be used on the subsequent action, and the original file would be considered "sealed."
The Divorce Store® will maintain your file folder in our office for a period of one year. After that time it will be destroyed.
File and Document Destruction
The Divorce Store® uses a document shredder for the destruction of confidential documents and files.
