Quick and Cheap Uncontested Divorces in Albertville
All counties have their own local requirements for filing an uncontested divorce such as requiring certain language in the paperwork unique to that county or having certain procedural rules about how and when the documents should be signed or filed. This is why it is always important to have a local attorney prepare the paperwork, even in an uncontested divorce. Our Albertville divorce attorney regularly files uncontested divorces in Dekalb County and Marshall County and will ensure that your paperwork has no issues and that you receive your decree as quickly and easily as possible.
If both parties are not in agreement, then you cannot do a cheap and easy uncontested divorce. Any other way you file for divorce is called contested, since there is no agreement at the time of filing. In a contested divorce, you file a document called a Complaint asking for whatever relief you desire such as being awarded custody, the house, or other such marital property or debts.
You can hire a local Albertville divorce attorney to do this for you or you can file it yourself. If you want us to represent you then, like most other divorce law firms, you will need to pay something called a retainer. This is where you pay a lump sum up front and the divorce attorney bills out of this hourly. That means the longer the case goes, the more hours that your Albertville divorce attorney will charge for working. Once the divorce attorney has billed enough time and this retainer is emptied, then you would need to refill the retainer to have the attorney continue representing you in the case. Most retainers for contested divorces can range from $1500 to $5000 or more, depending on the law firm and whether you have children of the marriage or not. For a quote on how much we will require up front to filing your contested divorce, just call us for a quick phone consultation with our Albertville divorce attorney and we can usually tell you over the phone the same day you call.

Our divorce attorney in Albertville charges the flat fee in order to prepare the paperwork and file it if you return it to us properly signed and executed. That way we know the work to be performed and can charge a flat fee and not have to charge by the hour.

Contested Divorce Attorneys in Albertville
If it’s not an uncontested divorce, for divorce is called a contested divorce. This is where you file a divorce without any agreement being reached and have your spouse served with the Complaint. Once they are officially served, the spouse usually obtains an attorney and files a response. There are hearings set and the judge will ultimately decide your disagreements if the two of you cannot come to an agreement.
In addition to offering uncontested divorce services, we also have an experienced contested divorce attorney on staff. However, it is important to note that attorney fees for uncontested divorce in Marshall County are significantly higher than an uncontested divorce due to the workload and how the retainer is charged. As is common practice with divorce lawyers, we require a retainer for such services and our contested divorce attorney in Albertville bills hourly from it depending on the amount of work performed. So your attorney fees could get more expensive if your marital issues are complicated and take longer to work out. A normal range for retainer fees is between $1500 to $5000 or more, of course dependent upon how complex the issues involved are and how contested they get. If there are minor children of the marriage, then the retainers are more than divorces without children, but there are other factors our Albertville divorce lawyer considers in quoting you a retainer.
To find out how much of a retainer our Albertville divorce lawyer would require up front to begin working on your case, you can call our office. You will have a brief consultation with a Marshall County divorce lawyer to go over the specifics of your case and give you an estimate. Things like what assets you share with your spouse, especially if there are minor children between you, or other potentially complex issues will affect the estimated retainer. Then our Albertville divorce lawyer can file your case when you get us the retainer.
