Montgomery Cheap Divorce
The first step to getting a cheap divorce in Montgomery is to make sure that you and your spouse are in complete agreement on all marital issues. That means you must agree on child support, custody, property division, and even visitation arrangements. If there is something that is not addressed in your agreement, especially concerning the minor children, then the judge will likely issue something called a deficiency and allow you to address it. Whether you need a divorce attorney in Prattville or anywhere else in and around Montgomery we can help.
If you do not address that issue, the judge can schedule a hearing or dismiss the uncontested divorce. Which means, all of these things could cost you more money in attorney fees, if you want the lawyer to continue working on your divorce. This is why, if you want a cheap divorce, then it is important that all issues are addressed in the paperwork that is filed with the Court to ensure you get the cheap divorce in Montgomery completed as easily as possible.
How are we able to get you a cheap divorce in Montgomery, Alabama by charging low flat fees? This is because, we are just preparing and filing your paperwork with the Court and getting the decree to the judge to sign. If you cannot get the documents signed or your spouse is refusing to sign them, then getting a cheap and easy divorce in Montgomery is not going to work and you will need to file a contested divorce. A contested divorce is where you file a divorce with no agreement in writing. Most divorce lawyers charge thousands of dollars in retainer fees to begin this process for you since it can last a very long time depending on whether the two of you can agree on your issues or not.
How Can I Get a Cheap Divorce in Montgomery?
Our divorce lawyers currently charge $390 for attorney fees in simple no fault divorces without minor children of the marriage and $490 with minor children for a simple cheap divorce in Montgomery. The process is very simple with us. The main thing to remember is, your spouse must be willing to sign the paperwork and be in complete agreement or it will not work.
Therefore, if you have minor children and the children are living with one of you more than the other one, then the other parent must pay some child support. Also, if you have the children living with you most of the time and your spouse is paying you child support according to the State of Alabama’s calculations or a reasonable amount that you both agree to, then a visitation arrangement must be spelled out in the agreement.
Visitation arrangements and anything else in your settlement agreement, must be in the best interests of the children or a judge will not sign off on it. This means if you are doing some confusing visitation schedule that the judge feels would be damaging to the children he or she might not sign off on it even though you are in agreement. This is why it is always important to speak to a local Alabama divorce attorney in your county to make sure you know the local rules and will be able to get your cheap divorce in Montgomery.
