The first step to getting a cheap divorce in Shelby County 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. If there is something that is not addressed in your agreement, especially concerning the minor children, then the judge will not grant you the divorce unless you can address it.
We are able to charge the cheaper attorney fee rate since we are just preparing your paperwork and, once you and your spouse have properly executed it, filing it with the Shelby County Court and getting your divorce decree. If you cannot get the documents signed or your spouse is refusing to sign them, then getting a cheap and easy divorce in Alabama 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 in Pelham and throughout Shelby County charge thousands of dollars in retainer fees to begin this process for you since it can last a very long time.
