GEORGIA UNCONTESTED DIVORCE
An uncontested divorce is the fastest, least expensive, and least stressful way to obtain a divorce. Disagreements are resolved before any papers are filed with the court. This dramatically lowers your costs and keeps much of your personal information private.
Our basic fees:
$350 -- No minor children (plus filing fee)
$650 -- With minor children* (plus filing fee)
Our fees are the lowest you will find for the work we do. Your documents are prepared by a licensed Georgia attorney. We offer a legal consultation, prepare the documents and file the documents in the clerk's office. In cases not involving children, a court appearance is usually not necessary. If a final hearing is necessary, as in most cases when minor children are involved, we will schedule and represent you at the final hearing, and accompany you you to the Clerk's Office to obtain file-stamped and certified copies of the divorce decree the same day as the final hearing. In other words, we take care of everything for you. We do not charge for postage, copies or paralegal fees. Our flat fees cover the entire cost for your uncontested divorce, except for the filing fee and the parenting class if you have children.
Is an Uncontested Divorce Right for you?
The decision to end a marriage is difficult. Some describe divorce as the most painful experience of their lives. Our philosophy is to try to resolve cases in an amicable and collaborative way whenever possible, especially if children are involved, because you and your spouse will likely have a lifetime of joint parenting interactions.
In most cases there is no need to rush to file a divorce. If the parties are on speaking terms and agree that divorce is the best decision for them, they should try to reach an agreement on their own at least on the major points, such as custody of the children, and division of property and debts. Ask for a free sample preliminary settlement agreement to see what reaching a divorce agreement involves. (Please specify whether you have minor children or not.)
What is an Uncontested Divorce?
A divorce is uncontested if you and your spouse agree on all issues before any documents are filed with the court.
The main issues to be settled in an uncontested divorce include:
- Child custody and visitation (including a parenting plan)
- Spousal support and child support
We handle your uncontested divorce from start to finish. We prepare all the required documents and file them with the court and manage the case through to the final judgment and decree of divorce. In case no involving minor children, no hearing is required. If there are minor children from the marriage, we will schedule a final hearing and represent you at the final hearing.
