Divorces in Huntsville
If you are seeking a divorce in the Huntsville area then it is important that you retain a local Huntsville divorce lawyer to handle your case. Even when considering a quick and cheap uncontested divorce, a local attorney can ensure that everything is filed appropriately. The Madison County courts have some local rules that apply to uncontested divorce filings that other counties may not have, and our divorce attorneys are very familiar with these county specific requirements.
For example, in Madison County, if you have minor children of the marriage then you may not be able to receive your divorce decree unless you complete a transitions in parenting course. This is a requirement that is specific to this particular jurisdiction. Most of the surrounding areas, such as Morgan County, do not have this requirement. Where you file your divorce depends on many factors, and once you have spoken with our attorney we can determine where it is most appropriate to file.
There are also certain clauses and language that may be required in your Settlement Agreement and other documents. This means that if you obtain divorce documents from an online document preparation company, instead of a local Huntsville divorce attorney, then their documents will not likely have the local language and clauses that are required by the Madison County judges. For example, in Madison County the Answer must contain very specific language that is not required in other counties across the state. Most of the time, not having the correct language in the Answer can cause a simple, no fault divorce to be dismissed.
If you are not able to reach an agreement with your spouse then you may not be able to file an uncontested divorce. In this case, you may need to file a contested divorce if you wish to obtain a divorce without an agreement being reached. Our Huntsville divorce attorneys can usually do this for a flat fee as well, depending on your particular situation and what marital issues are left unresolved. If you would like more information on how much a contested divorce will cost, then give us a call to speak with our Huntsville divorce lawyer today.
