Our Services provide users with (i) content that addresses many questions and topics that pertains to divorce, (ii) a software solution that allows them to prepare certain divorce documents, and (iii) other premium features that may be applicable in more complicated situations, such as referrals to legal services to assist users working through such a divorce. While we may review information you provide for completeness, spelling and internal consistency, we do not review the information you provide or the documents produced by our Services for legal sufficiency, to draw legal conclusions, or to provide legal advice, opinions or recommendations. We are not a law firm and we do not perform services performed by an attorney, such as assessing or advising you about your legal rights, or the legal remedies, defenses, options or strategies you should pursue. At no time will an attorney-client relationship exist between us and any user.
Our Services are designed primarily for amicable, uncontested divorce actions and address generalized circumstances. If the action could be contested or is complex, or if you need customized advice for a specific problem, we advise you to engage a licensed lawyer.
While we strive to keep the content and documents available in or through our Services accurate and current with law and court rules, the law and local court rules or procedures can change with little notice. Therefore, we do not guarantee that all of the information on the Website or App is completely accurate and current. Therefore, if you need legal advice for your specific problem, or if your specific problem is too complex to be addressed by our tools, you should consult a licensed attorney in your area.

CARBITRATION, CLASS-ACTION WAIVER, AND JURY WAIVER
The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof) or our Services shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by JAMS under the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures, except as modified by our Arbitration Procedures . The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that either party has the right to bring an individual claim against the other in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction, or, if filed in arbitration, the responding party may request that the dispute proceed in small claims court if the party’s claim is within the jurisdiction of the small claims court. If the responding party requests to proceed in small claims court before the appointment of the arbitrator, the arbitration will be administratively closed, and if requested after the appointment of the arbitrator, the arbitrator will determine if the dispute should be decided in arbitration or if the arbitration should be administratively closed and decided in small claims court. Whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding, against us.
By using our Services in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and us (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury, and the arbitrator will determine all
issues regarding the arbitrability of the dispute. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons. For details on the arbitration process, see our Arbitration Procedures.
Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation
against us (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in Salt Lake County, Utah. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.
Governing Law and Venue
The laws of Utah, excluding Utah’s conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement or our Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Arbitration Agreement in Section 9a above is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
The Terms contain the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of our Services. The Terms supersede all previous agreements, representations, and arrangements between us, written or oral. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid, illegal, or otherwise unenforceable, the remainder of the Terms shall continue in full force and effect. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. You agree that your account is non-transferable and all of your rights to your account and its content terminate upon your death, unless otherwise provided by law. Any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by us without restriction. No agency, partnership, joint venture, fiduciary or other special relationship or employment is created as a result of these Terms, and you may not make any representations on behalf of or bind us in any manner.
