Flat-Fee Uncontested Divorce



Flat-Fee Uncontested Divorce

The issues in a divorce are how you will divide up what you own, how you will divide up your debts, and whether one spouse will pay the other alimony. Additionally, if you have children, you have to decide on a parenting schedule, how decisions for the children will be made, and how much child support will be paid.

If you agree on all of these issues and just need help getting divorced, we can help you. If you do not agree on all of these issues, please review our Divorce page for more information.

For a flat-fee of $1,000, we will draft your complete filing packet, including a comprehensive separation agreement and all the documents that need to be filed with the court in order to get divorced. We will then provide you with detailed instructions for how to file the packet with the court and attend your final uncontested hearing. When you attend your final hearing you only have to wait to get called and then spend usually less than five minutes speaking with the Judge. Since the final hearing is so straightforward, we normally advise clients to attend on their own. However, if your case has certain complications or you would just feel more comfortable being with an attorney, we will represent you in-person at the final hearing and bill our time at an hourly rate.
