Divorces in Anniston
Going through a divorce can be an extremely difficult process emotionally with both parties having to undergo a life changing transition. Sometimes both spouses do not want to have to increase this already difficult process by fighting or arguing over the division of property or other marital issues that may still be unresolved. Therefore, the spouse’s may attempt to reach an agreement concerning all marital issues and try to file something called an uncontested divorce.
An uncontested divorce is the quickest and easiest way to get a divorce, but it requires that you have already talked with each other and reached an agreement. If you have agreed to all marital issues, then our Anniston divorce lawyers are now charging $320 to handle your filing with no children of the marriage and $420 if there are minor children.
Our Anniston Divorce Lawyers
Most counties have their own unique local requirements in order to obtain a divorce, such as having a particular clause or language included in your Settlement Agreement or other documents. In certain divorce cases, additional documents can be required depending on the terms of your settlement agreement that have been reached and your particular situation. That is why it is important to retain a local Anniston divorce lawyer to file your divorce for you, to ensure that all local requirements are met and that you obtain your divorce decree as quickly and easily as possible.
There are a few procedural requirements that are unique to Calhoun County Courts, but our Anniston divorce lawyers regularly file cases in this jurisdiction and are familiar with these local rules. In Calhoun County, there is no certificate of completion from a parenting course necessary in order to obtain your divorce decree like there are in some other counties. There is a filing fee that is required when our divorce attorneys file your divorce and in Calhoun County that fee is about $258 (which includes a small convenience fee for filing electronically). This fee must be paid prior to your divorce being filed and is not included in the flat fee prices listed on this site for attorney fees in uncontested divorce cases.
