How Much Does it Costs?
Our divorce lawyers in Prattville are currently charging a flat fee of $290 for uncontested divorces without minor children and $380 for uncontested divorces with minor children. There is also a filing fee that is paid to the Court and varies from county to county. The filing fee for Autauga and Elmore Counties is around $240.
As opposed to a contested divorce, when an agreement is reached before filing the process can be much simpler. There are no large retainers or long drawn out divorce proceedings that last over a year before having a trial where both of you get to re-argue all of your issues in a courtroom and have a judge resolve your contested issues.
When an agreement cannot be reached and both parties are on opposite sides of an important marital issue (such as a disagreement over custody of a child or the division of very valuable marital assets) then a trial is sometimes necessary to resolve the issue. However, if an agreement can be reached before a divorce is filed then it can be much less stressful, quicker, and inexpensive.
