Getting a Divorce in Alabaster
Our Alabaster divorce attorneys are currently offering flat fees for uncontested divorces in Shelby County, Alabama. An uncontested divorce is where you and your spouse are in complete agreement and there are no contested matters. As long as both spouses sign the divorce paperwork then our Alabaster divorce lawyer can file it with the Court. Once it is filed then you will get your divorce decree by email and mail about a month or two later. An uncontested divorce is a quick and inexpensive way to get your divorce without going to court.
If both spouses are not in agreement then you will need to file a contested divorce, which costs much more. The Alabaster divorce attorney fees in contested divorces are not a single flat rate. A retainer is a lump sum paid up front that the divorce attorney in Alabaster bills hourly out of until it is used up and must be refilled. The retainer fees up front for a contested divorce are thousands of dollars up front, depending on the complexity and contentiousness of the matter, amount of assets involved, and location of the filing. Our divorce attorneys in Alabaster can sometimes work out low flat fees for some family law matters, but not for contested divorces.
