Divorces in Montgomery
Going through a divorce can be a lengthy, bitter, and exhausting process. Many spouses may worry about having their life put on hold while they wait for a court date, and also paying their divorce lawyers thousands of dollars in retainer fees. Filing for divorce, and in the meantime having to deal with the ongoing divorce battle between both spouses and their divorce attorneys, can be extremely cumbersome to handle and can sometimes not be worth the energy and money involved.
When you go to file your divorce it is important to retain a local divorce attorney that practices regularly in that particular jurisdiction, even in the case of simple uncontested divorces. This is because each county, and in particular Montgomery County, has unique local requirements that a Montgomery divorce lawyer will be aware of while most law firms not regularly filing divorces in that particular county will not.
Our Montgomery Divorce Lawyers
It is important to have a divorce attorney that knows the local rules where you are filing. For example, in Montgomery County if you have minor children of the marriage then you and your spouse will have to attend and complete a parenting course, even if you have already reached an agreement.
Our Montgomery divorce lawyers regularly file cases in the Montgomery County Courts and are familiar with their local requirements for divorces. Therefore, our attorneys can assure you that when we file your no fault divorce in the Montgomery County Courts, you should receive your divorce decree as quickly and easily as possible.
In addition to the attorney fees that we charge, there is also a filing fee that must be paid to the Court when the divorce is filed. How much this filing fee is depends on the county you file in, with the filing fee in Montgomery County being a little over $200 (which includes a small convenience fee for filing your divorce electronically). This filing fee must be paid before we will file your non-contested divorce for you. If you are retaining us to file your contested divorce the filing fee is usually the same.
If you reside in Montgomery, Pike Road, Hope Hull, or Mount Meigs, then we will most likely be filing your divorce for you in the Family Court of Montgomery County. Montgomery is the capital city of Alabama and the county seat of Montgomery County, with the county courthouse being located in downtown Montgomery at 100 S. Lawrence St., Montgomery, AL 36104.
